Sports: Extremely common and well supported within the system.
Resources: Easily accessible teachers and school authorities.
Parental Involvement: Hit or miss, depends on family background.
Diversity: Largely Hispanic population.
College Readiness: Open resources, Integrated college credit system, the works.
Safety: Never felt threatened. Exits are locked from inside, save main door.
Administration: Well managed and kept. Helpful with just about anything.
Food: VERY hit or miss, cafeteria-style.
Facilities: Old, but kept clean and clear of danger. Seemed to be under construction my entire time there.

I'd never think to choose somewhere else. My freshman year was surrounded by new people, kind and passionate teachers, and an extremely welcoming atmosphere. Sophomore year followed the same path as freshman year. My Junior year was annoying due to construction of new buildings and classes moving around in the middle of the year, but it held the same atmosphere as freshman year along with the staff trying their hardest to keep everyone happy. And the higher level classes I took the more serious the teachers became because they knew that I was serious too. Seeing how passionate the teachers are even though there's so much construction is not something one sees everyday, so I believe that McMinnville High School is one of the best schools in Oregon due to the staff alone.
McMinnville High has tons of resources and an awesome staff that are always willing to help. The curriculum is very well structured, and we can tell that the teachers want us to succeed!
