One thing I admired about McKinley was the STEM program that the school has that enabled students to get a start on what career they choose to pursue. It give students, such as myself, the opportunity to take a grand view on what is to be expected in regards to the engineering field. There is an immense amount of steps to take to ensure the completion of an engineering project and McKinley Tech has given evident insight. However, one thing I would alter is the reliability of some resources of the school. The lack in resources disables students from projects and sometimes proves to be of a hinderance toward academics. On the other hand, this allows for students to discover other innovative way to get the work load complete.
I liked how engaged the teachers were with the students in classes, and how dedicated they were to the success of students who tried to learn along with those who didn't really give the effort. The teaching staff went above and beyond at times, which I really loved since I was helped at times- brought out of these deep holes. The only only reason this isn't a five star review is because of the state of cleanness in the school. Some areas were known to be infested with mice and rats, making some students anxious.
