Prior to high school, I was a socially awkward person. I was apprehensive about the new environment, classes, and curriculum. With time, I became adapt to the routine. My school is STEM based, so it geared to my career path in medicine. I enjoy taking rigorous Biotechnology classes that allows me to manipulate living organisms to create tools that help in society. Coined as "Tech," my school offers a wide range of extracurricular activities. However, I wish they would have more clubs for students who aspire to become doctors. It would be refreshing to have cultural classes as well. Overall, it is a challenging but sometimes limited learning environment.

I have a lot fun at school. There are some things that can I do not like, such as the lunch, and how some of teachers and administrators respond in certain situations, but the school culture is great!
McKinley Tech is a great school when it comes to all around academics. I have had a great time at McKinley for my first three years and I hope my last year is the same. The schooling environment is great as the school is almost quiet all the time and not a lot of conflict goes on. We have decent sports teams as these teams build and create friendships throughout the sport season. Then, these sports teams are even carried to workout in the summer to continue building on. Then the academics are great. The school provides a FREE education that is for getting us ready for college. Overall my experience at McKinley has been great and I wish I could do it all over.
