    Overall Experience: This school's campus makes you feel like an adult. The teacher re always there for you to talk to. Because McEachern is a huge campus, a lot of responsibility and maturity is needed to make sure you don't get in trouble in the 10 minute break between classes.

    Overall Experience: It's a really nice school with a huge campus. Kinda wished they focused more on the little clubs too so people wouldn't miss out. Though, other than that the school is amazing.
