  • What you mean your kind you sound so ignorant you know that McKeel has some good teacher and but there some that are to much to handle so they act like there god gift of education and they are taking the uniform that are so expensive and but you have to be really big like 270 not to fit any one of them.

  • okay, look here. i am a senior finishing up my career at Mckeel academy. you all pose good points but as a senior i say that it is worth it all in the long run. yes the uniforms are a bit expensive, but i own 2 pairs of shorts, and wash them each weekend. and i own 3 shirts, and the school has a CLOTHES CLOSET in which you can exchange parts on uniforms in for new parts. and or buy the parts cheaper than new.

    the curriculum is harder, but it's just new to students when they first get here. i as a senior have to do an internship during the first semester of the year, and it has shown me what i really want to do in my life.

    the main problem with the school is the lunches, we as seniors are served the same portion as a 6th grade student, which we a as whole high school have a problem with.

    just know, the challenge of the school itself, really is preparing a student for what is to come in college.
