I would describe my experience with McGehee High School as pretty good. For a small town, the academics are pretty great, but our facilities are terrible. The school is not cleaned very well. Some of the experienced teachers are amazing. A new STEM program was started, and that was a great step forward for our school.

McGehee high school has been a great experience for me over the years. I have been taught for the first time ever, rather well, extremely well if i'm being honest. These years that i have been going to school I have only went to two different schools and no doubt can i say that i would have loved to have been going to Mcgehee my whole life instead of these three almost four years that I have been going here. I wouldn't change a single at the school. it is great the way it is and I am very proud of the school that I go to.If someone needs a recommendation for a school to switch or transfer to then I would highly recommend Mcgehee as an aption.
Best high school ever. Learned something new daily and the new class environment was amazing. The teachers knew exactly how to make you feel at home and make sure you learned what you needed to succeed in the future. I am a MHS Alumni! I love my high school.
