    My child has been attending this school for 2 years. She does not have one person who is interested in getting together with her outside of school - not one! Her therapist told us that this is a common problem for new students in McKinney. If your child is new, he or she will do fine if they are outgoing and involved in sports. If not, then consider a school where the culture is more diverse and the student body is more welcoming to new people. Also, one teacher has stated that the core curriculum is the worst that he/she has seen in the metroplex ( teachers babysit while students play on their phones). Another teacher stated that out of all of the schools in the metroplex that he/she has taught in, this one is the only one where the students don't want to be here. AP classes are challenging in the amount of "busywork" involved, but not because of content. What is wrong with this school????

    My child is new to this school a freshman and so far the staff there has not been helpful to her needs as far as the disability she has also the staff there is very disrespectful. African American students have a hard time at this school.

    McKinney Boyd HS is a great school with faculty that cares about their students. I feel my daughter is getting an education that will prepare her for college and the world at large.

    I graduated from Mckinney Boyd and it's amazing. The faculty really care about you but are no nonsense. The various types of assistance for under privileged children is astounding. Like any school there's bullying but if reported doesn't last long. Fights are stopped just as you're realizing there is one. The opportunities this school gives to succeed are seemingly endless and I wish I had of taken advantage of more of them.

    We are considering moving to McKinney and we have heard from numerous friends that there is ALOT of bullying that goes on at Boyd High School. How many cases have been reported and handled at Boyd for the school year of 2013-2014?

    My school is a model of what a quality high school should look like. Kids are engaged and feel a sense of being a part of something special. Every child has the opportunity to find success in an environment where the staff truly cares and the community is behind them. Go Broncos!

    Our experience at McKinney Boyd High School for 2 years was so bad that we sold our home of 22 years and moved out of the district. The math department is the WORST! My daughter, who had been an A/B student in math had to have tutoring by the end of her Sophomore year just to catch up in her new school. I had experiences with being dismissed and spoken to rudely when calling lead staff memebers with concerns and need for help. Also, my daughter was always complaining about having a sub rather than a regular teacher, especially in math class. The staff seemed to have a "don't care attitude" and the Principal made it clear that he didn't care what they do. I would like to give Kudos to the girls head basketball coach, Coach G. She was awesome and the only good thing I can say about that school. Your child is just a number among thousands there. This is all my personal opinion and based on our personal experiences.

    My son attends this school and has for the past 3 years. He loves this school and has never had any significant problems. His sister didn't weather as well, transferred to another McKinney high school and dropped out at the end of last year. She will re-enroll in another district this coming fall for her senior year. There needs to be some sort of safety net for teens and their emotional well-being.

    Mckinney Boyd has grown so much just is this school year. Many organizations have excelled and made positive progress to have our campus reconized. I am apart of many activities and UIL extracurricular programs and its been one of the best years of grade school i have expierenced yet. Coming to Boyd this year as a freshman i was really worried about meeting new people and how big in size it was. But being involved in organizations it made meeting people, learning way around school, and making my overall first day comfortable. I HIGHLY recommend that your children get involved in anything in high school no matter what high school you go to. They will appreciate it alot once they realize how much its helped them. Every teacher cares about every student at this school. Mckinney boyd is a great school and i love it. Go Broncos:)

    As a former AP student from Boyd, I can tell you that those classes do not focus on TAKS. Regular classes may, but the AP teachers focus on teaching the kids the info, helping them pass the AP test. Which helps them get college credit without being in college. And by the way, if you don't pass the TAKS, you don't graduate! So there is a reason they put a lot of emphasis on the TAKS.

    My daughter is a freshman at Boyd and enjoys the school, despite the large size. My only complaint is with the Volleyball program at Boyd; it appears that unless your child is a 'club' volleyball player, there is not much chance of making a team. The freshman teams are all club players. Not everyone has the money for their child to participate in club ball. My daughter played volleyball in middle school, but was very disheartened when she did not make one of the freshmen teams. There was definitely a difference in the attention club players received, versus other girls. There were girls who had played on the 'A' team during middle school, but did not make any of the Boyd volleyball teams; these girls were not club players. I think it is very sad that high school athletics has become so 'club' oriented. What message are we sending?
