Robert McQueen high school is a great school. They are very focused on making sure you succeed! McQueen high school wants you to do well even after high school ends, even if you don't end up going to college. The only downside of McQueen is the swipe system. The swipe system is supposed to make the tardy rates drop, but instead they just have made kids skip class because they don't want to swipe. It also, makes children even more late to class. Instead of them being 2 minutes late they will now be 10 minutes late. But, overall the school is focused on the children doing well, not just academically but in life outside of school!

Very good school with all the excellent teachers. We have a lot of different art, music, theater programs in our school. Especially with sports, we have a very good team. We always work together as a whole, everybody feels involved. Another factor is that we have different language programs, Spanish, French, German, and Chinese. Students always have the opportunity to choose whichever class they want to take based on their interest. Also, McQueen high school does an excellent job for preparing students for college, or the job force. I love my school.
My high school was great. I always felt safe and knew the teachers were there to help us learn. Now, it is high school. So, there are always downfalls. My school was an epiphany of High School Musical. There were different cliques that were clearly noticeable and people didn't dare to wander outside of their group. I would definitely like to see more activities that catered to all social groups. We did throw multiple dances and pep rallies that I enjoyed immensely. However, we needed more activities that brought the whole school together rather than what we thought brought everyone together. My senior year was the best attempt yet. We had a talent show where many students from all social groups participated in. Overall, McQueen High was a great experience.
