    This school is amazing. They teach in a fun way the children come home everyday learning something new. Their games are fun with the marching band prep band and all the students. They just all have a good time. Though we have fun there is still rules to follow and we can't disobey them. I really recommend this school! They have all the classes u need! Spanish French music classes even for piano players! They have tons of clubs including a fashion club! We are competive but yet we have great sportsmanship! GO MAVERICKS!

    I cannot say enough good things about this school. Out of McC came some of my fondest memories. The facilities teachers administrators athletic departments and all other aspects of the school are top notch. I went to McC from my Freshman year to my Senior year and I can't say enough good things about it. The teachers are AMAZING thoughtful results driven and student oriented but most of all they were a friend. The lunch may be lack-luster; however that's where the lackluster ends. Feel confident as a student or parent that there is a good education to be had at McCutcheon High School.

    Great school great teachers and great food (most days). ) The classes are challenging for great potential. The teachers are supportive and kind as you let them. I really feel that you cannot ask for a better school.

    As a recent graduate of McCutcheon High School I can honestly say that I recieved a quality education that prepared me for college which is what high school is all about isn't it? Most of the teachers would go out of their way to help you if you asked for it and also made their classes fun. Teaching high school students has to be one of the most difficult jobs and I am greatful other people will step up to the challenge because I certaintly do not want to! GO MAVERICKS!

    I am also a parent of 3 wonderful students at McCutcheon. All of my children are in sports at McCutcheon therefore I know that we parents of athletes pay a lot of fees to allow our children to participate. We also donate a lot of time to make sure that the concessions run smoothly and to make sure that our children are taken care of properly. (Travel food support) All of my children participate in as many things as possible at McCutcheon. They all get good grades and work very hard to do it. I know many of the teachers at McCutcheon and I honestly believe that 99.9% of them would help ANY student that ask Not just because they are an athlete! If you truly believe that the arts program needs more money then step up to the plate and talk to the school about you organizing a fund raiser.

    Yes I totally agree athletics at McCutcheon are way too overrated they need to cut back on that and offer more from the arts department extra cirricular clubs etc.

    The Athletic Department is one of the problems in our schools today because they take too much of the school funding. They also take away from art and music programs because one situation that I know of is that an art teacher ran out of supplies and took her own money and bought more. I believe that each of these programs should have an equal amount of money. If they run out then let them have fund raisers to help with the financial situation. The students who participate in sports are shown favortism by most of the teachers and that needs to stop.

    I think that this school has too many vacations and should be cut back.
