I absolutely loved the performing arts classes. The orchestra, band, choir, and theatre classes were amazing! The teachers really seemed to care about the students, and those classes gave students a sense of accomplishment and belonging. Only thing I would fix is the outdated bathrooms and lead pipes that lead to the drinking fountains.

My experience at Mcnary High school was great! I really enjoyed attending there mainly because the overall atmosphere is very splendid. I sincerely inform everyone that Mcnary's staff is very impressive. Without a doubt, every teacher I had was very helpful in every way. I clearly remember Mr.Keeker, my Geometry and algebra two teacher always assisting me with everything that troubled me in his class. He took his time explaining every lesson there was and always had patience with everyone. Mr.Auvinen was also a great science teacher. His humorous classes were the best always wanting me to keep taking any of his classes every semester. He also cared so much about his students. He always pushed me to try my best in every class. Even influenced me and asked me how I am doing in other classes. Mcnary overall really made my four years of high school unforgettable.
I attended McNary all four years of my high school career and I basically failed the first two years. I hated it there. None of the teachers that I had actually tried to help their students or get to know them. They approached us as if we were robots all programmed and hardwired the same way. It was as if they thought they could just type in a new code and ta-da! We're all smarter now! No, that's not how it works. I had no interest in actually going to school. If it wasn't for automotive class and MSgt Ellis, there's no way I would've graduated. They cared more about looking "world class" than actually being world class.
