McIntosh was an incredible preparation for the realistic amount of work-load and real-world experiences that college will bring. The rigorous courses provided were indeed a plus. The opportunities available to partake in multiple types of dual-enrollment and AP courses were great! I would highly recommend this school, in all honesty, for realistic exceptions of life in college, and superb academics.

As a McIntosh alum and now current college student, I can say that McIntosh is not as great as its awards make you think it is. The amount of homework teachers give students every night is far beyond what many can handle, the school does not care about student well-being and the administration is constantly focused on things that do not better the school (i.e. prohibiting seniors from the long-held tradition of stickering other students on the first day of school and reprimanding students for chanting at the school pep rally). Now that I am in college, I can actually say that McIntosh was harder for me than college is.
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.
