McFatter Technical College and High School Reviews

I am currently a Junior at Mcfatter and I absolutely love it! First of all, their food is amazing! They have tons of options from Papa Johns Pizza, diner style burger and fries, to gormet dishes made by their very own culinary students! Here at Mcfatter the teachers all share a positive attitude and in general see happy to be there. I've established relationships with several teachers and always feel important and cared about, never dismissed or ignored. Mfatter is definetely a smaller high school but I find that I really enjoy that aspect. They offer several AP classes and all the non-AP classes are honors which boost my GPA and I always feel prepared by my teachers. The administration makes us aware of scholarship oppurtunites. We have dozens of clubs and I will say there is definetely something for everyone. I only wih the sports aspect was more developed. I understand this is a Technical school but more sports and activites tht bring unity among the students would be awesome.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my short time at McFatter. I believe it is an excellent facility that provides students with more than what is necessary to succeed later in life. The food at McFatter is prepared by its culinary students thus making it top-notch. In terms of academics, McFatter excels there as well. The rigorous curriculum is manageable due to the fact that you have 4 classes per semester. I am not stressed out like I would be if I were attending a regular 8 class school. Additionally, the campus has some of the greatest diversity I have ever see. There are people of every color, background, and culture here so you will not feel out of place. Overall, I believe McFatter is an excellent educational facility.
McFatter Technical High School is an absolutely amazing school! The teachers and staff are very helpful and do their best to prepare the students for their futures whether they're going right into college or heading into the workforce. I found that the student body is also one of the best things about McFatter, not only is it a smaller school but the students are very welcoming and kinder than most would expect.
