    Overall Experience: Don't really know too much about the parents getting involved with the school but I do know that a lot of people's parents really care about their child's education.

    Teachers: Most of the teachers were pretty friendly and helpful but of course there are the few that are very opposite and extremely biased towards students.

    Health & Safety: In cases that have required a school lock down, I feel that the safety policies that are put into place worked well. I feel safe at school. We have sheriffs that are on staff for the benefit and safety of the students. We have a policy for infection control, and a school nurse who implements this policy which protects students from attracting communicable diseases.

    Extracurriculars: I have enjoyed being a part of the cheer-leading squad, ambassador activities, honor societies and the Chick-fil-a leader academy. These organizations have benefited me in many ways. I have learned leadership skills. They have prepared me for possible future leadership positions. There is a wide variety of clubs and organizations offered at McAdory High School.

    Overall Experience: My high school experience was great! I enjoyed Friday night football, while leading the varsity cheerleader squad. As the Varsity cheerleader captain, I learned to be a leader with the hopes of leaving a positive impact on the underclassmen.

    I found pleasure in being recognized and involved in high achievement societies. I enjoyed helping others when needed. I would certainly choose this school again if I had to do it all over. I look forward to sharing my experience with my younger siblings while they share their experiences with me.
