When I first came into this school, I was skeptical thinking I wasn't going to enjoy it. I didn't know anybody, however, as time went on I came to meet amazing friends and created a strong group that couldn't happen in any other high school. I'm glad to have chosen this with amazing teachers and a good but competitive student body. The communication could be a little better however, but overall a great high school experience!

I loved attending McFatter Technical College and High School, it was different than a regular high school but offered technical programs that were great stepping stones for the future once we graduated. Great opportunities! I would recommend anyone!
The school is like a little developed village. There are only 600 students, so everyone knows everyone (even the teachers). The classes are challenging, so the students all suffer together like veterans from the same war. The students help each other too. There are plenty of clubs, but some are meh. Students are busy, but occasionally they have time to socialize or do some other unimportant stuff like sleep or spend time with their families. Most teachers are nice and good at teaching, But some don't really teach. The teachers are still way better than most other schools IMO. You can't pick classes, but you can pick the tech program you will take at 10+11 grade. The school is focused on the student's success and their future. Very Focused. It's a tight knit community, and I love it. PS the food is amazing!
