McHenry High School - West Campus Reviews
As a recent graduate of McHenry West Campus, I felt that the school overall meet my academic needs. During my tenure at MCHS I took courses that challenged me and prepared me for college. I also was able to participate in sports and other extra curricular activities that I enjoyed. There were some teachers that stood out for me and helped me excel and prepare for my future. The school does a good job bringing students together and getting them excited about their goals and future. I know looking back I will be grateful for what I achieved and learned at MCHS and always be proud to be a warrior.
My experience was pretty average. I was neither impressed or disappointed with high school, but it definetly wasn't something I looked forward to each morning. I'd like to see the teachers be more caring towards their students. The teachers are either phenomenal or horrible, there's no inbetween. The students are very judgmental and are predjudice towards those who are different. There's not a lot of diversity. Students who are considered popular tend to have a more positive experience. Office staff is very rude, but administrators are usually friendly.
McHenry High School - West Campus has shaped me into the scholar I am today. The counselors gradually prepare you for college, they don't overwhelm you the moment you walk in the door nor do they leave you feeling unprepared the day you walk out of the door. The teachers are always there for you when you need help and advertise their availability for tutoring, some even offering to meet you for coffee after school. There is a wide variety of clubs and activities, but there is a handful that are more well known than others. As for athletics, football is obviously favored over any other sport, boys basketball in a close second. The football team receives new equipment every year, while the tennis team has rackets that are years old and the track team has stained uniforms and wobbly starting blocks. The diversity in the school isn't great, but I believe that is based off of where the school is located and it can't do much about it, though they do promote a no discrimination policy.
