One aspect of McHenry East Campus that I've always held dear in my experience is how caring some of the teachers are, and how easy they are to grow attached to. The educators I've personally had have been very personable and relatable. They know their craft well, and are able to explain it in ways that are reachable to multiple types of students. Even when a student isn't very committed to their studies, many teachers still treat them with hope and with belief in them. As for the facilities, they are clean and easily accessible for everyone. The individuals in security are well liked by most of the student body, and are very nice to chat with on a day-to-day basis. The faculty in the main office are warm and welcoming, as are the school counselors in the counseling office. The theatre program is vibrant and filled with talent, as is the rest of the art department. This school is unique in its personality and fantastic faculty that overall allows for a blossoming learning environment.

An amazing school with teachers that care! Many different after school activities to join from sports to volunteering to theater. Absolutely loved the people there.
McHenry High School provided me with a mediocre high school experience. I enjoyed the environment of the school, many of the teachers and the after school activities I participated in. I can not say I am overly impressed with education I received unfortunately. McHenry is not well known for the education it provides the students, in fact the school is ranked far behind most schools in Illinois. The learning experience I received is definitely one of the things I disliked about McHenry High School.
