Do NOT send your children to this school. Having recently graduated, I can say that this school is terrible. It does nothing but give your children a diploma. It in no way, shape, or form prepares them to go to college. I BEG you not to send your children here. The academics are subpar, and the student body has low morals and are a terrible influence. If you want your child to have any hope of going to college, send them to some other school. The only colleges you will get into after graduating from here are the most local ones, offering basic degrees. If you want your child to have a future and escape from this area, send them to nearly any other school besides this one. The only redeeming qualities are a supportive and attentive principle and the *occasional* teacher that cares.

This school was rediculous to say the least. I know a person who graduated and could not read. If you are in Macon County please send your children elsewhere. It does nothing to get your children ready for college. If you do send them there make sure you are working with them after school so they are actually learning.

Macon County is not one of the greatesest schools. Some teachers lack the power to control their students, or rather the students are uncontrollable. No AP courses are offered after sophomore year, also. The teachers do a great job with their lessons, but overall, it's mostly a fashion show.

M.C.H.S. is making improvements and it is showing in our children's test scores. I have a 10th grader and she is excelling in most classes as well as athletics, clubs, and leadership. I love this school and it just happens to also be my Almamateur.

This school needs to reach out to parents and it has not provieded the services promised by the NCLB Law when a school does not make AYP.

Hi I am a student at macon county high and an active member in several clubs.I enjoy being at macon county high and the wonderful job that our teachers are doing to help us learn the materials that we shall need in the future. All of our teachers are working to make each and every student pass on to the next grade with the best education they can get. Macon county high school is the best school I know and no one can tell me different.

Macon County High is full of potential. The students love this school, and the teachers enjoy the students. Over the past couple of years, there have been many changes to help this school to become one of excellence. You can see these changes as you walk down the halls and see students that are excited about what they are learning. This school is not only great because of its academics but also because of its diversity. Students are exposed to other students of different cultures and ethnicities.
