McKinleyville High School Reviews
The friendly teachers and close-knit community here are just a couple of the many things I love about this school. First off, I've never been in a more beautiful location. The redwood trees, mountains, and ocean are so picturesque. You'll never get tired of watching the sunsets. The class sizes are small enough to develop a great relationship with the teachers here and get the most out of your classes. Love this school!
At McKinleyville High School I am actively involved in the FFA, as an FFA member I am extremely proud of how our school is respectful, and how much our program has grown. Our administration supports each and every club, and works hard to keep the students safe, and the parents involved. If a problem arises, everyone, including students, work to solve the problem. I feel that McKinleyville High is a very safe environment for me and everyone of the students that attend the school. The academics and teachers work to prepare students for college, with IB and AP classes, the students have every opportunity to succeed. The school works hard to keep the parents involved in every event, and their students lives at school. Overally, I have had an amazing experience at McKinleyville, I have always felt welcomed, and I work hard to welcome all of my peers.
The teachers at Mckinleyville high school are absolutely fantastic. The majority are creative individuals that really care about the students and preparing us for university. They encourage us to share our opinions and really make connections between subjects. The drama program is hands down the best in the county. Those students really leave high school with confidence in speaking in performing and have even gone on to be in prestigious programs (such as OSF). I took 4/6 classes IB and this was my experience with those teachers, however outside of that program some teachers lack this enthusiasm and I would just say average performance. The school tends to have more conservative views and this can be suffocating at times if this disagrees with your views, and it certainly affects the culture of the school (southern themed dances, America dress up days, tense arguments in class, etc.) If you choose, can get a really spectacular education from the experienced teachers there.
