McGavock High School has come a long way. Many people think it is still a bad school but that just is not true anymore. We have one of the most diverse schools with every race you could think of. Our pathway programs can get you working making $20 an hour right out of high school! There’s so many opportunities and chances for someone like me who has no family history of college. The school has opened my eyes to the real world and I highly intend to send my children here in the future.

I liked that there was so much to be involved in. Our principle told us our freshman year to get involved otherwise school will be boring. So get involved!
One thing I would change creating place where students can go that actually want help. A place where a counselor is there to help you when you need help and not just "pushing you along."
Mcgavock High school has great diversity and the subject matter is challenging in a good way! I would recommend focusing more on how teachers are teaching and how they can be even better! I would also like to be able to be involved in more clubs besides the typical ones.
