McNeil High School Reviews

I love how big the school is! It’s funds are used for what the student body needs to be successful. They want to spend their money on things that the students actually need, like providing gaming hardware for the esports team instead of buying another gym like schools I have been at in the past have. They recently just opened a new wing of the school for the fine arts and it is beautiful! They appreciate their students and want all of them to succeed. Some aspects of the student body I don’t approve of, however. Some students are rowdy and don’t care about their teachers or other students. Although the student body is quite diverse, I also do find myself experiencing homophobia and transphobia on almost a weekly basis. Other than that, however, the school is doing a great job! They have such a wide expanse of classes that it’s almost hard to pick your schedule.

McNeil is a solid High School, academic wise it offers a good range of courses with varying difficulty including: on-level, pre-AP, AP, onRamps, and dual credit (through ACC). Throughout my four years I took majority pre-AP and AP classes and found them challenging but enjoyable with the right teachers. Administration, resources, facility are all average.
The sports, clubs, and organizations at McNeil vary, however overall cover almost everything you could want to do. FLEX allows club activities to happen during the school day, there's napping and coloring club, organizations like DECA, HOSA, and FFA, and all the sports, cheer, and drill teams. I was in Sapphire Dancers, Student Council, NHS, FNHS, NAHS, Unicef, FFA, and dance club. I loved the organizations I participated in especially Sapphires.
My experience at McNeil was great, with many great memories! The teachers are overall very understanding, and they take academics very seriously. The staff as well as the students are committed to everything they sign up for & more. Overall, a very outstanding school with high ranking.,
