McBee High School is a progressive school that seeks ways to improve communication between parents and teachers. Their new building is beautiful and the new Media Center is inviting and tastefully decorated. Students are encouraged to read by their teachers, the media specialist, and the administration. Students from other counties are paying to attend this public school. Keep up the good work MHS.
