McKinney High School



Located just 30 miles north of downtown Dallas, McKinney is a picturesque city with a small town feel. However, McKinney has a population of nearly 132,000 and is one of the fastest growing cities in the US. Graduating its first class in 1889, McKinney High School is the original of 3 public high schools in McKinney and serves diverse student population of approximately 2,700 students in grades 9-12.The building underwent a full renovation during the summer of 2013 updating the building facade, infrastructure, and technology in order to better reflect the quality of education that takes place within the building. https://www.schools.mckinneyisd.net/mhs/

AP Human Geography


This was my first AP math course, and it caught me off guard. I was used to throwing math behind me in favor of science just because of how easily a lot of the basics of complex algebra and trigonometry initially came to me. Calculus used a lot of the same concepts, but the way they were integrated—pun not intended—and the sheer number of ways that such concepts could be used in advanced math blindsided me. I made it out, but this was one of those classes that, if I didn't have the right teacher and curriculum, could have easily made my life a lot harder.
