McIntosh High School Reviews

I enjoy the social aspects of McIntosh High School - sporting events, theater performances, community work - but dislike the pressure of the academic curriculum. McIntosh is ranked as one of the most academically intense public schools in the country. The teachers are well educated and definitely make sure their classes live up to the high school's reputation as a collegiate public school. Despite the well-rounded teachers, the administration is not as liked and respected as the teachers. My peers and I resent the administration because they are the original source of all the stress that we experience during our school year. I gave my high school a ranking of 4 stars because its only flaw that I personally experience is the administration and their constant push to pit the students against each other and to make us view our peers as competition, not as friends.

McIntosh High School is an extremely high achieving school, but that does not mean the students have great experiences there. Specifically, the students who take an insane amount of AP classes. Of course it is our fault for overloading our lives with school work, but the only reason we do this is because of the advice and environment McIntosh presents to us Freshman year. Adults make sure to inform incoming Freshman that if they do not appear above average with grades and rigor, their chances of going to college are extremely slim. This claim is entirely false, but since kids are persuaded to think they need to do such extremes, they decide to overload themselves and, as a result, their mental health goes down. I've experienced such decline in my mental health because of school, but luckily I am getting better. McIntosh tends to set kids, like myself, up to do the extreme from the beginning. It results in students losing both their mental health and a positive high school career.
McIntosh High School did an excellent job of preparing me for college the hard work I would experience beyond high school. The teachers cared about our success and were some of the best teachers I've had throughout my academic career. McIntosh had something for everyone and allowed those looking to take a specific path to take classes and extra curricular in those areas. One thing I would like to see change is the rigidity of certain programs. The school recently added a STEM program for students wanting to pursue a science based/engineer career after high school. My younger brother is planning on taking this pathway. However, once you decide to enter the STEM program, you are not allowed to change your mind later on. As many young people starting high school are not sure of their adult career plans at this point in their life, I find it confining to not allow the kids to change their mind if they realize the STEM route is not a good fit.
