    Extracurriculars: While a large portion of the school's commitment is given to the football team, other athletic programs and clubs are important parts of the school. Also it is very common to find students who are in multiple types of clubs and organizations.

    Overall Experience: I definitely enjoy looking back on the experience of high school more than I did going through it (mostly because it felt restricting at times), but the friends that I made are the reason why I would choose McEachern all over again given the option.

    Teachers: The teachers may not have as much knowledge about their subjects as some upper-echelon schools, but most of them care about their students and try to teach lessons that are applicable outside of the classroom.
