We moved here due to a job. The schools are horrible. There's no education in this town. We are outta here!

There are some excellent teachers but I feel that the students are being cheated of an education the school needs more money for books labs and anything esle that would improve their learning and give them an advantage that rich schools have, but overall mcgehee has excellent teachers it is a very good facility so look beyond its exterior it is a fine institution but I do wish that the students wore uniforms I feel that most of the clothing they wear can be highly distractive.
