This is my first year at McGehee and I love it! Everyone has been so nice and reached out to me! The homework is not as overwhelming as some of the nearby schools. All of my teachers and peers has challenged and inspired me. I have made a lot of new friends. McGehee keeps girls from developing cliques, which prevents drama. McGehee also has great academics! I recommend McGehee to all girls! It is a fun and beautiful school!

Both of my children graduated from McGehee and went thru the entire program PK to 12. They were so very polished and knowledgable when they finished. Graduating from McGehee is at least quivalent to an Associates Degree from any good college in the country. And their college professors noticed their writing skills, all developed by McGehee's first rate writing program.

This school is great for all girls. There isn't as much drama as I thought there might be, which is a great surrounding. But of course, some of the girls are obsessed with boys but that's okay, their growing girls. Also, the girls are taught to be independent, especially in high school. Great education! I would recommend this school to any girl.

I think this is a great school. They teach us the importance of reponsibility, freedom, and education. It is strict, yet they teach the curriculum so well it seems easy.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
