    "I really like this school, but sometimes, the principal seems kind of cold. I like all the counselors, and the teachers are nice. Sadly, people out of my ethnicity seem to almost think I'm weird. Overall I love the electives and I have many friends. I really love how the teachers make everything so clear for me. I've never really been bullied, but I guess it exists in all schools doesn't it? I honestly love how they push us academically so that we can remain in the top. Pushing us is a good thing. Take it from a student. What's life without a challenge?"

    "The principal is as cold as ice to guest teachers, but the students are top notch, especially the 6th graders. The AP's are all over the school and approachable. Many of the teachers are very professional and caring, but many are anything but professional. I know that some are not even fully certified, with and abundance of teachers out there looking too. If you are going to substitute at this school, and are new at substituting, avoid the eight graders unless you insist on a challenge."

    "My daughter went to McMeans for 2 years and all in all she really enjoyed it! The Assistant Principals are wonderful and were always there if we had a concern. The school work was hard but not impossible and the kids were all very nice. I will say I agree with all the comments about the Principal though (I have nothing nice to say about that woman so I'll keep my mouth quiet)"

    "I went to McMeans all three years and loved it! I was an office aide, so I talked to the assistant principals and other officials pretty often and I must say I was disappointed how little the principal herself was involved in anything. She sorta just sits there and looks official. The assistant principals were wonderful though! Teachers are great too, except for the band dept. which I was told to leave because I missed too much school. I really don't see where there was bullying, and I wasn't exactly popular."
