    "Most teachers, especially English and Science teachers, go above and beyond to help students succeed. They put in their own personal time to try and help struggling students and make lessons engaging as well as informative."

    "This school, despite being large and one of three schools in the city, is a really close community. There isn't an elite group of people like some other schools. We don't fall into cliques or bully one another. We really would look out for everyone and it made the entire experience really remarkable."

    "This is the best because I have been attending to this school for 4 years, 9 to 12 grade. I can still remember when I first saw this school, when I was going to my first class. This school, for me, has a lot of memories. Now I have to say goodbye to this memories because I am graduate on May 2016."
    Topic: Academics | Rating:
    Posted 2015-12-01
    "I am currently taking all AP and/or Dual Enrollment courses, so it's fairly difficult at times to balance all my work. At the same time, it's very easy to get A's in these classes, just more difficult to get high A's, which is what I aim towards. In comparison with higher academic schools, such as Churchill and other large schools, my education is behind theirs, so when I get to college I will have to work extra hard just to keep up."

    "McAllen high school stays true to its traditions which I am very fond of. We've recently got a new principal who hold the respect of many teachers, student, and parents. Of course there are some cons, but even school can't be perfect to the tee. Some faults I would acknowledge are the curriculum for some classes. I've been in classes that don't do anything and it seems as though the class is a waist of time. I believe teachers should be held do a certain standard and if they aren't then the administration should do random checks on the classes and make sure learning and teaching is taking place."
