McCall-Donnelly High School
11 Best Public High Schools in Idaho
- McCall-Donnelly School District, ID
Senior: Overall, I've enjoyed my time at MDHS! My teachers have been fairly accommodating and easy to work with, and I've met some of my favorite people here. Inclusion vs. exclusion is a bit of a tough topic here, and there are some bits and pieces that aren't as lovely as MDHS would like you to believe - the loneliness that can stem from a small community riddled with even a small amount of divisiveness and bullying aren't great, but the education is well-structured and rigorous for a small school. Budget distributions can make children of the arts feel disproportionately represented with a hefty set of funds for winning sports teams and some ignorance in other spots, and the pressure to take AP classes, Dual-Credit, and participate in extracurriculars - while great for college prep and resume building - can wear down the community. Overall, I'm glad to have been here for my strong education during high school.

Parent: Our family LOVES CCS! Our two boys went through CCS and are much better young men and students as a result. The overall environment at the Catholic School is exceptional. Academically, the students are encouraged, supported, and pushed to do their very best in the classroom. The teachers do an amazing job of reaching each student individually which translates into a trusting, caring, and successful school experience for the student, the parent(s), and also the teacher. In and out of the classroom the teachers and staff also do an extraordinary job of instilling discipline, self-respect and respect for others, thoughtfulness, and a sense of community and personal responsibility. Our boys continue to excel each and every year both as students and as young men in our community and I believe those valuable traits are a direct result of the foundation, mentorship, and guidance that they received as students at the Charlottesville Catholic School.
