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.

Great school! I love that it has less students then our local High School, which means my son's classes are a lot smaller. McFatter Technical High School is also a magnet school, which offers vocational programs, trade certifications & skill-building courses to help build your child's future career, on top of the typical High School diploma.
The school is a good one if you want to know what you will be studying in the future as it gives students options in wielding, film, nursing and more! However, if you are looking for the traditional High School experience then you're out of luck. It's also a very small school , so if you prefer that type of environment then this is the school for you.
