I love the small community that our school is located in. The students have great support from alumni and the community academically and athletically. Being a part of the back to back state champion basketball team, I have been able to see just how the people of our small town loves the Fighting Blues and it makes me proud to be a Blue.
Academically, we are very fortunate that our school partners with the community college and offers dual enrollment classes. I will graduate with almost a whole year of college credits towards continuing my college education.

Parry McCluer High School is pretty great. There are many opportunities for college credits throughout the four years a student will be attending. We are able to have dual enrollment through Dabney S. Lancaster. Our school is a close-knit school because it is small, but being small has advantages like, being able to have one on one discussions with our teachers, having time to make up work, and our ability to focus on balancing school work and sports.
Teachers, coaches, and other faculty played favorites with students based on who their families were. The education was bare minimum, as teachers were simply trying to get everyone to graduate.
