    "I liked McDowell High School because the spirit of the school is good. Especially during football season, everyone participates in spirit week, and everyone comes to the game to support them. Also it gave me a good idea of how to be prepared for college."

    "There are a few teachers who care more about the education than having a job, but the education is lacking. The teachers give their lessons and don't care if the student learns anything. They just care about the test scores at the end of the semester."

    "I graduated from this school in 2014. I went to two schools during my high school years and it was actually the nicer of the two high schools I attended."

    "I Really like McDowell High my child has been at the school for his whole high school career. They have plenty of academic courses to take if you are not interested in vocational studies. A good variety of language classes and extra curricular activities. Pretty much a great school and really wouldn't change anything."

    "McDowell High School is by no means an excellent high school, but is also not a terrible one. For those interested in the academic field, resources are fairly limited. The high school mainly focuses on athletics and CTE, or career readiness, rather than preparation for a 4-year university."
