I liked how all the classrooms were organized, if I could change something about the school it would be the way of culture needed. Majority of mclaughlin students are native american. We need to bring our language back and our traditional ways, by singing the sacred songs. I suggest monday morning group up, k-12 will all gather and pray and announce all the daily school announcements like sports, birthdays, lunch, any social events that are going on.

The education at McLaughlin was the best you can can ask for, however some teachers just seem give more than others. While some teachers go above and beyond to help their students but some teachers don't seem to really care to help at all. I wish there was more clubs or after school activities to engage in. Still despite those minor flaws, McLaughlin is still a great school for learning and growing.
If could do it all over again, I'd still choose to go McLaughlin. From kindergarten to my senior year, I've made friends near and dear to my heart. I also have fond memories of the school that I wouldn't trade for anything. Some of the teachers and staff were like mentors to me and taught me a lot more than just education.
