Everyone at McKay is very friendly and supportive with one another. So if you asked me what a typical student at McKay is like I would tell you that they are leaders and have so much pride and spirit for their school.

The typical Mckay student is very outgoing, known, humble, friendly, hard worker, and athlete. There really isn't someone specifically who should attend Mckay, whether you move there or start going there you will fit right with the school. The environment is beautiful.

At McKay the people that are thought of as minorities are the majority which is not a bad thing at all. A good portion of the student population is Hispanic which leaves Caucasian people being the minority. The type of student from McKay is someone from a lower middle class household where the parent's first language may not be English. On the other hand there are students who come from a family where the parents have attended college and are upper middle class. My school has a fairly good mix of students and for the most part we respect each other and their backgrounds. At my school everyone has a different story, we are not in any way a cookie-cutter school. Anyone can attend McKay because there is a clique for every type of person here.

I may answer this question differently then some because the groups of other students I have always been surrounded with have been much like myself, which is expected in AP courses. The average student at McKay High School that I have experienced are ambitious, open minded, enthusiastic, intelligent, confident, kind, and challenge themselves to succeed in every way they can.

A typical McKay High School student is one who may not be as intelligent as other students at other schools, who are always stereotyped as dumb, unathletic, always starting fights/joining gangs, and will end up working at McDonald's. What people do not know without being enrolled in McKay High School is that we work hard to fend off stereotypes, trying our best to become who we want to be and not who others think we will become. A type of person who should attend McKay High School is those who believe being a part of a spirited family, working hard to achieve one's own destiny and defy limits set by others to hold them down.

A typical student at Mckay High School is hard working, cares about their grades, and studies all the time between classes. They are usually seen with huge backpacks, packed lockers or backpacks.

A typical High school student at McKay keeps to themselves in the hallway. It's bell rings and earphones on, that is until they meet another fellow classmate that they can talk to. I've noticed that a lot of the students at my high school segregate themselves. Different cliques do not often interact with each other and we are kept within the natural boundaries that out set by our social groups. Don't get me wrong everyone has some good to them. The average student at McKay is involved with school activities whether it be sports, theatre, math club, the bowling team, or AVID. I think the person who should go to McKay is someone who is committed to improvement. My school pushes big with improvement because we were known for being the high school with the poor kids, with the gang members, with the kids who slacked off, and sadly we are still seen as this "ghetto school" that will never change. That is not true, kids come here to improve and to become dedicated individuals that want to brake the misconceptions that other schools and kids have tried to keep alive. But the school and the students are striving to make a slow progression toward success.
