McMillen High School offers a wonderful opportunity for dedicated, passionate, and intelligent students to shine. Surrounded by an environment of supportive and talented teachers, it was easy for me to discover my passion for biology. Depending on the courses you take, the academics at McMillen can be quite rigorous, especially for students who want to do well. There is ample opportunity for students to join clubs and organizations at McMillen; one of the benefits of being a smaller school is that it is easier to "shine" at McMillen and earn leadership or varsity fine arts/athletics positions. Principals at times can seem removed from the general student body, and communication between staff and administration is limiting in a way that oftentimes, teacher will derisively scoff at administration. Generally, though, for students, McMillen is what you make of it. It's a beautiful campus with new, updated classrooms, and if you take it seriously, you will shine there.

I enjoy the teachers and staff, they truly care about your well-being. However, the school bathrooms and hallways are littered with trash, I've witnessed students smashing mashed potatoes on bathroom mirrors. I suppose that's the one drawback of having a 72-minute lunch, the kids take advantage of it and usually don't utilize their time wisely. It's originally structured to be a time where the students could go to tutorials and visit teachers, but I feel like it's just a time where the students can order UberEATS and goof off with their friends. Honestly, I prefer Lion's Lunch over block lunch, but the disciplinary action that the administration takes is really a joke. There are still kids who trash the place, knowing full well that they get lunch detention.
I'm not speaking for everyone, of course, the wise students who use their time wisely to have club meetings and attend tutorials are the 5% of people.
The thing I will always love most about McMillen is the beautiful campus. Many of the students there are amazing people who I felt very blessed to know. There were also some amazing teachers. However, the organization of the campus left much to be desired. During my sophomore year, we switched to having a block lunch, which sounds like a productive idea in theory, because students had more time to "do homework". Unfortunately, we found that it was considerably harder to get work done while the whole school was eating lunch than when we had a thirty minute advisory period during a four blocked lunch schedule. But overall, I truly treasure my experience at McMillen.
