During my experience and time at McHenry East Campus I had a great 4 years! My freshman year I was welcomed by a club called “LINK” (leaders inspiring new kids). They made all freshman feel safe and overall apart of the school. The first year at East i made so many friends that i still consider my best friends today. That same energy and mindset continued on to sophomore year. I started to make better relationships with my teachers this year. My junior year was the hardest but also the most fun! The school got a new principal who influenced me so much. Jeff Prickett is his name and i couldn’t thank him enough for changing the school and making school more fun! Mr.Prickett made academic changes, building changes, and most importantly teacher changes! Meanwhile, my senior year was also fun. I love the school i attended for high school. It shaped me into the person i am today and i am so grateful for that.

I graduated McHenry High School in 2016, and I was very active in the community. I was a part of the band program, the theater program, and the graphic design program. These programs are what really made my high school experience special.
When it came down to the classes and teachers, there were a few that made a large impact-- and I still use the tools that I gained in their classrooms today. Specifically Heidi Dunn's AP Language and Composition course. This class gave me the tools I needed to effectively communicate through writing-- which has greatly impacted my continuing career development.
Being a smaller school, we are a very close-knit community. My favorite part is how much the teachers want us to succeed. We have a class period every day where the entire school is dedicated to going to teachers for help, so every teacher is available!
