The thing I liked about my high school was the friendships with not only my peers but with teachers. Most teachers I had were friendly and still taught me a lot! Another thing I liked was how much the school cared about my ACT score. We had several opportunities to work on improving our scores during school hours. Some things I would like to see change would be stricter punishment to students who break the rules. AEP is too lenient and does not get the point across. Overall my high school was pretty good.

McLean county is Very small, about 500 students roughly. Everybody knows everybody. A very friendly environment. The teachers all know one another so it gives a very comfortable, homey type of vibe. Our school spirit is through the roof, and we care a lot about our school culture. The teachers and guidance make sure students are college ready and know what their getting into out of high school, and into the real world.
McLean County High School is a wonderful school that provides a great stundent experience. The administration is very friendly and extremely helpful. Each teacher has a unique technique to teaching. They try to teach each student individual. I felt as if they gave me the ultimate learning experience as well. I passed all my classes with ease due to the help I received. Even my classmates worked well together. Since we have a small number of students everyone gets to know each other. McLean County High School makes their students education their first priority. The only thing that possibly be improved is the amount of class opportunities offered. Overall, McLean County High School is a great school.
