To me there isn't anything special about this school. I can definitely highlight the negatives better than the positives. The administrators focus way too much attention on things like dress code, and not enough on academics. Some of the administrators are very rude, and assuming. On the bright side, the school has a great leadership program, but the district needs to access other issues rather than construction.

I hate this school because i really want to learn things about the real world but the only thing we learn here is about Taks...and I know more than the teachers that is truly sad.

McCollum is growing and it is getting better. My sister graduated in 2003 and is now working at a news station and living a successful life. I'm currently a senior and yes McCollum has its problems but the same can be said for any other school.

I feel that McCollum High School is one of the most friendliest school that a student can attend. They are always introducing more numerous ways for students to get a higher education. The School for Leadership and Public Service is also a great addition to the school, as it has now seen throught five graduating classes. McCollum also has a great extra curricular activities and programs. They have a great band, drama tean, and excellent sport teams. The only thing I am disatisfied about is the lack of parent involvement at McCollum High School. There should be more parents suopporting a great high school in thier community.

I am actually a senior at MHS in the Leadership program. MHS has a great potential to be a good school, but there are just setbacks such as not enough money for materials. Many classes do not even have a full set of textbooks for one class. I think before HISD's schools become great, the school board has to clean up their act. However, I do think the Leadership program at MHS is great! I'm not saying it's better than being a regular student, but it does insure you get a higher level of learning. The Dual Credit and the Advanced Placement programs at McCollum is a real privelege to students and it gives them a head start before entering college. I think scores are low simply because our students don't have the drive. The students are smart!

I am not a parent, but actually a 2003 graduate of The School for Leadership and Public Service at McCollum. I think it is utter bull that McCollum has dropped considerably low in scores. I just wish parents were more aware of their children's productivity at McCollum. Atleast out of the seventy somethin who graduated from LPS and McCollum , 85% are attending a four year University and the others are at community college. Whoa! Lets get on the ball now!

Atleast the school for leadership and public service is a good outcome of this school. I think about 90% attend a four year university, the others attend community college or went into the service. About 2% is taking a year off or two. mccollum should take some leadership and find out where they are lacking in skill.
