McKinley High School Reviews

My name is Jada Howard, I am currently a senior at Canton McKinley Senior HighSchool. My personal overall experience at this school has been tedious, their are teachers and staff who are there for your well being and then there are the staff who could care less about your well being. The quality of success at my school are slim to none due to lack of encouragement and awareness of scholarships such as this one and future guidance on how to correctly pursue education as well. My overall rating of Canton McKinley Senior HighSchool would have to be a three out of five, if McKinley was more geared to the success of student education finances and the correct preparation of statewide testing such as the SAT and ACT and less concerned about athletics then I would believe there would be a high success rate after becoming an alumni of Canton McKinley Senior HighSchool.

Transferring from Canton South High School to McKinley High School it demonstrated how different the education was in comparison to the two schools. The academic material was suitable at McKinley High School compared to Canton South High School where the academic material was more advanced. McKinley High School Was diverse in all aspects which made going to school more comfortable. The school allowed students to express themselves and creativity which helps students find their career path. The teachers and staff were always willing to help students reach their goals and personal issues. McKinley High School is full of school spirit the school focuses on helping the students feel comfortable and have a great experience. They incorporate activities frequently for students to do through out the school day to make it more enjoyable while focusing on academics.
McKinley had a very nice selection academically but the teachers sometimes taught very poorly. There were many clubs and activities that students could get involved in, as well as sports. McKinley sports were very deemed very high in the community especially football. They have a very great football program for students as well as other sports. They have pretty good food options and music/art activities. The safety of McKinley is decent but there have been several complications.
