I have had 2 daughters go to North. One has graduated and currently gone on to a university this year the other graduate said this year. I would highly recommend this high school over any! The staff is wonderful, they keep you informed and there is a large diverse group of kids! The academics is up to par and they have an amazing AVID program. Absolutely LOVE this school!
McKinney North High School is a very well put together school. We have all sorts of classes and activities that cater to everyones needs and desires. For example, we have SAFE club for people with different sexualities, Chess club, Anime Club, Sign Language Club, Orchestra club, etc. We also have classes for students to take that cater to their future such as Child Development, Read Set Teach, Aviation, Astronomy, Forensics, Band, Orchestra, Choir, Fashion and Design, Cosmetology, you name it. I moved here to McKinney in second grade from Dallas, and it is definitely a day and night situation. There have been times where my family planned on moving but didn't because of how amazing McKinney Independent School District is. I would recommend this district to anyone with kids looking to move to a great school district. I definitely would not have had the opportunities in DISD that I do here.
