High school is a name used in some parts of the world, and particularly in North America, to describe the last segment of compulsory secondary education. In the United States, high schools generally consist of grades 9, 10, 11, and 12, although the inclusion of grade 9 varies by school district.
McDonough Built in 1976, McDonough High School offers a varied curriculum to serve a diverse student population. When the school was built, the Open Spaces concept was popular in education. For this reason, McDonough High School was built with pods rather than classrooms. The pods housed departments, like Social Studies, English or Science. Classes were conducted in open spaces within the departmental pods. There are 130 administration, teachers and support staff working with over 1300 students enrolled at McDonough.
They at McDonough High School believe that their school is an institution designated for use by its student population and its community. Realizing that their school serves a geographical area composed of students with diverse cultural and socio-economic backgrounds with varying needs, they offer a variety of curricular, extra-curricular activities and programs that suit these needs.
Teachers and administrators of various cultural backgrounds serve as models of cooperation and interdependence by means of exhibited mutual respect, professionalism, and open communications. Through the classroom, students are directed toward in-depth understanding of the origins and histories of their many-faceted society. It is their hope that their students, as products of their educational system, graduate with the skills for success necessary to become productive members of society.
It is their aim to offer comprehensive and sequential courses that provide students with an optimal choice of content, teaching techniques, instructional materials and learning activities. The primary purpose of formal education is to determine the student's current level of performance, both academically and physically, and to encourage the student to progress at his or her own pace. They recognize that it is their responsibility as educators to use reliable testing and evaluative techniques to identify these developmental levels and to implement strategies for improvement in order to ensure that all students have the necessary skills to meet all graduation requirements.

The mission of McDonough High School is to educate all students to think clearly, feel humanely, and act creatively and constructively. The goal of the school's staff is to provide all students with opportunities to develop skills in communication, interpersonal relationships, physical development, career readiness, technological applications, and thinking processes thus, enabling them to become life-long learners.
