McKinley High School offers great school counselors that not only help you with your mental frustrations, but also help you with opportunities that help boost your college resumes. Everyone who has a upper hand in this school is nothing but helpful and respectful. They give you their full attention and always offer after school help because they want you to be successful in their class. We have many after school activities, however one thing I'd like to be offered are activities that have to do with science or gaining experience in a students desired field. Not only would this benefit me but also many other students that want to major in something that is law, musical theater, communications etc.

My experience at McKinley High School has been a pleasant one. With every high school student, high school is always a stressful time for each and every student. The four years I've spent at McKinley, it has been a struggle. Yet, every corner I took, there was always a teacher willing to lend a hand. I have grown helpful relationships with my teachers and my counselor, for I am a worrier, and it has benefited me throughout my high school career. I have took the materials I've learned and now I am prepared to start my college career.
My education at McKinley has been a roller coaster throughout the years. The teachers at McKinley are great, however, the morale and behavior of the students have majorly declined since my first year here. When I was a freshman, they announced they would combine our high school and the other high school within out district, and chaos irrupted. However, since the merger, there hasn't been any drama, there is just way more people. McKinley offers opportunities that other schools do not which is why I would strongly recommend the school to anyone looking for not only an educational experience but a social experience.
