McNary High School Reviews

I transferred from a private school my freshman year, and I ended up loving McNary. As time went on I got to see how sucky it really was. My friends were the only good part about it. The teachers only cared about students if they had a good social status! One teacher said I wasn’t going to get into college, just because my SAT scores weren’t the best. I ended up getting into an amazing one in California. I also worked really hard for 4 years in multiple subjects and electives, but someone who did nothing for the program, got the recognition. McNary truly is a piece of crap, and I’m so glad I’m done with it.

McNary has undergone several changes since I started high school. For example, the brand-new college career center has made connections to general post-high school advice much more accessible. On the other hand, the elimination of honors-level classes has resulted in a strong push for AP enrollment for underclassmen; many underclassmen have struggled without the preparation of an honors classroom. For extracurriculars, they have a good program of "one sport, one club, one activity, every student, every year" that encourages students to participate in order to improve their academic standing. In a school of over 2,000 kids, finding a place to belong can be one of the easiest and most challenging aspects of high school life. The experience in the community is what the individual decides to make it.
Overall, my experience at McNary High School has been memorable. I've had some wonderful teachers who pushed me to be a better student and person. Throughout the years, most of my classes have been honors and AP. Though the courses have its share of challenges, none of the work I've been presented with was too difficult to work through. I am also a student who is heavily involved in extracurricular activities. Being in band and theater, time management becomes a necessary tool in order to be successful. My teachers in the arts have supported me and helped me connect the bridge between extracurricular activities and academics.
