The most unique trait of McNeil high school is its focus on students' education and their interest. I am very passionate about learning different languages and volunteering; I just love learning about new cultures and hearing a simple gratitude "thank you" after hard work. In McNeil high school, there are over forty clubs, which students can join. I love how there are variety of clubs, and the good news is students can join as many! Another great quality of McNeil High school is its rather high rank and great reputation. I seek a good education and definitely appreciate it.

I think that McNeil High School is awesome in their academic and talents field! If it wasn't for the clubs we have during flex I would probably be less involved and more seclusive. I'd like to think that McNeil is so diverse that everyone gets to express themselves in many ways, such as, art classes, anime classes, dance classes, and even choir & orchestra. They offer these opportunities to spark an interest in us young adults. It creates a passion to keep us motivated on achieving our best in our high school career.
I absolutely love McNeil High School! I will miss all of the teachers who stay too late after school in making sure their students understand the content being learned in class, the friendliness of the administration and their constant hard work in making sure McNeil runs smoothly, but mostly I will miss my fellow peers and how kind everyone is to one another, the unconditional love students feel when they walk into McNeil.
