18 Parent Reviews for Mcneil High School

My son just began his freshman year and, so far, we love it. Teachers are involved and communicative. Great academics, support and plenty of extra curricular activities, clubs, and sports. My son is not a football player and, so far, he has not experienced any of the bullying from students, or apathy ...  Read more

Disorganized, overcrowded, and unsafe. Principle is incompetent and rude to parents. Teachers don't care if students learn and take care of their friends' kids & forget the rest. Focus is on cheer leading and football, not academics. Cheerleaders come to school in very revealing outfits and TONS of ...  Read more

This school was so terrible when I went there (2011-12), I ended up graduating online just so I don't have to deal with that mess. Fellow students would rather pretend not to hear you than to see what you want, the teachers don't care if you actually learn or not, they just want you to do good on the ...  Read more

McNeil is pretty awesome. My son goes there and loves it. They have a policy that EVERY student be involved in some extracurricular activity. I think this is a great policy because it keeps teenagers out of trouble when they are involved in something they enjoy.

I loved all my teachers at McNeil and always felt safe, and challenged intellectually in the class room! I definitely enjoyed my four years here.

I finished my Freshman year there, and I have never hated school more. Some teachers would never be there on time, and there's too many students. The class average size is around 24-30 students. It's makes it very hard to learn, and uncomfortable. I had my worst school experience there, and am not going ...  Read more

Challenging academics. Down to earth students. Excellent band and choir programs.

We have just finished our freshman year. I still can't believe how far the school just exceeded all of our expectations. My son never was a athlete and had trouble making friends. The academy gave him a place to be with people who think like he does. He loves the challenges they present him with. The ...  Read more
