McLane High School is an overall great school! The diversity is a large range with excellent school spirit! One thing Mclane High School lacks in is it's academics. Most AP courses DO NOT get you ready with the skills you need for the AP test or SAT. We feel very unprepared which leads us to just not try at all on it. This affect our college applications due to lack of education on certain criteria. There is, though, a handful of teachers that go to the extreme for you in order to pass.

My experience has been wonderful ice attended this high school all 4 years and I wouldn't change a thing about it. The staff is amazing and make you feel welcomed and they are very much interested inn the success of the students. They have a lot of good clubs, school events and activities!
McLane high school is a great school. People believe that this school is bad because of the reputation that was given to this school. In fact, through my years at McLane I realized that this is probably one if the best schools I've been in. The teachers here are dedicated to help the students achieve their goals and help seniors like me to find opportunities in both our career and life paths. There are many talented, intelligent, unique students there that could make a difference in this world but don't get the same opportunities in life and school as others do. But the fact is we don't give up, we actually push harder and are more motivated to achieve our goals. McLane is a great school with incredible students, supportive staff, teachers and administrators and excellent councelors who motivate us and remind us that we can achieve anything in life and we are great students.
