McHenry High School - West Campus Reviews

The environment and community surrounding the school is absolutely amazing. People are kind and no one is afraid to enter the school. There is a lot of community involvement around the school as well. From Key Club in the school, to any community involvement, people are always looking for opportunities to help out around town. The classes offered at West Campus rage from the level of education each person may need. There are the regular basis classes and there are the AP classes that help to prepare you for college and give you college credit. The overall purpose behind West classes is t prepare each individual student for after high school. Besides the classes, there are many clubs and activities for every student! Ranging from a video gaming club to the average sports teams. There is something for every kid to enjoy and get involved in. McHenry West Campus focuses on what is best for their students before anything else.

Something I love about McHenry High School - West Campus is participating in activities and sports. I love competing on the Track and Cross Country teams, going to football games, playing in the powder puff game, being a part of key club, and so much more! An improvement I would make to the campus would be having more student representation in decisions that impact them.
Overall a good experience. Classes are manageable yet challenging if you choose to take the AP/honors route. Lots of great teachers that make connections with students. Fantastic band program! Looking forward to seeing how things go with the new extension being built and the new courses being added.
