My daughter is a freshman at Mchenry West High School. The teachers and counselors have gone out of their way to make sure the transition from 8th grade to H.S. is as easy as possible. She is loving the first semester thus far and is looking forward to her future as a Warrior. Thank you for caring and making the transition and easy one!

There are two parts of this school: the motivated and the unmotivated. As a member of the motivated track, I've been largely separated from unmotivated students by being placed in honors courses and becoming involved in many of the opportunities available for students. There are great teachers, who take learning seriously, yet keep it light-hearted. The teachers I've had have all been supportive and very caring. (I even hear that the now-labeled "unmotivated" part of the school has some amazing teachers!) As far as the motivated student is concerned, there is enough opportunity here as anywhere else. The music program is strong, the athletics are.. still being worked on, the theatre program is great fun. I can't speak for anyone but myself, but my experience over the last four years at this school has been immensely beneficial to my character. Throughout the school, there are still cliques and separation, but on the whole, McHenry is one of the most well-connected schools I've ever been to. From the spirit rallies, dodgeball tournaments, athletic events, musicals and plays, it is easy to tell that those who want to be here don't hesitate to be involved. I love this school.

I have a special needs (IEP) Froshman at West Campus and so far I am impressed. The teachers and staff are all so willing to communicate and help. I was worried when we first came, we transfered from a small private school, that my son would have a hard time adjusting, but he loves the school and his teachers. He is getting so much out of his experience here. Thank you all.
