McIntosh County Academy Reviews
Rating MCA average isn't because of the teachers, the overall majority of them are great teachers, it's because the lack of focus of what the school can do for the students to greatly succeed. I'm not saying that they should help people that doesn't put in any effort-but for those that do- they should help them in areas where its needed. Besides the just the lack of education, MCA actually has great principal's now. Hopefully they'll stay. On behalf of the teachers that teach, but the students don't learn; the students at MCA plays a big problem in our school. To be very blunt with whomever is reading this, the kids in our school don't give a crap. We lost two Culinary teachers in the same school year, and no they didn't get fired. They quit. For a school that has been trying to do better, the students surely aren't helping making it easier. So the school doesn't deserve: terrible, poor, very good, or excellent. They get exactly what the students look for...average.
McIntosh County Academy gave me the worst high school experience. In most schools students get the opportunity to start AP classes early on, and take classes required to graduate early on. In McIntosh this is not the case, students were not allowed to take AP, Dual Enrollment, or the foreign languages required to graduate until the eleventh grade. Fed up with the school system I did full time dual enrollment in the eleventh grade at College of Coastal Georgia, who does not offer a Physical Science class (which is need to graduate) so I was forced to take this class that had a lot of labs online when it should have been a ninth grade class. However, when I went to the college they turned things around the correct way, started Spanish and Physical Science in the ninth grade. However, to add on to my rant in my four years at MCA I had four different principle, needless to say the school went the entire second semester without even having a principle.
During my 4 years of high school spent at MCA was definitely a learning experience and also an amusement park at times. Why do i state that, you ask? Well let's just say this high school wasn't taken as seriously as it should have been. Other than the education, cafeteria food, and the teachers, fellow associates and friends were always a go-to to take a load off of what has been going on around the school. What I think that should improve in this high school is higher level of education taught to the students and more extracurriculars taken place so that when students graduate from there they would know how to use their full potential and knowledge in life.
