Overall McEachern Highschool is very diverse. The teachers are always encouraging news their students to do their best! The teachers themselves show professionalism and realatedness with every student. They cooperate as a team with facility members and others involved; as well as, encouraging students to attend school games, activities all in all showing great sportsmanship and engagement in after school activities. They hold responsible for everything that is done, very professional, and take control over the classes.

My experience being at McEachern has been good overall. Though some things I have experienced have not been good, I can still say that I would not want to go to any other school. Academics are our number one priority, I can honestly say the level of education you receive is the best. It is a well-rounded school environment and I would recommend anyone to go experience the best four years of their lives! If I could change anything at school, it would be the restriction of certain activities the student body are not able to do as a whole. We want to have more fun! #BleedBlueAndGold #PrideInTheTribe

Love the school (would not want to go through the work again)! Two of my best experiences are going to the McEachern nature center to take photographs for graphics, and doing Shop with in Indian. Shop with in Indian (SWAI) is an event where the students raise money to fund a child's Christmas (and needs) and shop with them.
