I currently have 3 students in McDonald County High, a Junior, a Sophmore and a Freshman. I think that for the most part the teachers are really good. You always have a few bad in with the good. This school offers several different types of credits for graduating. For example, the college bound is more core credit orientated, where as the Industrial graduate has more arts credits. This give the students more choice in classes than when I went to high school where every one had to have the same classes and same number of credits to graduate. If your student is into Football, or other sports, but exspecially football, they will love this school. If they are more into band, choir, drama, etc. they will not like this school! All my students are into the arts type of classes, and it is very frustrating when the school does everything it can to support the sports, (the principle is assistant football coach), but when it comes to an activity that you actually get a grade for in school, like band, the school refuses to support them!
