Diversity in Connecticut is a big issue for many schools, but for Brien Mcmahon, that’s no problem. Brien Mcmahon High School holds just about 1,663 students with a minority enrollment of 72%.
At Brien McMahon there are many different cultures that you can learn about and that’s why it’s great to have a diverse school. There are so many benefits that come with it and there are kids who are more than willing to tell you their story of how they came to the US if they weren’t born here or they’ll be glad to tell you how they ended up at McMahon.
Even though some schools have a really good diversity rate, the disadvantage is that most people only stay with the people that they know. Most people don’t like to step out of their comfort zone and explore the different things McMahon has to offer.
To the right is a the graph of Brien McMahon high school’s diversity rate.
One sports team at McMahon that knows how to take advantage in playing with every race and giving a warm welcome to each other while also finding a brotherhood with it and it’s the McMahon football team. The McMahon football’s diversity breakdown looks like the following.
The Brien Mcmahon Football team holds a record of 2-6. Despite the record the boys play very well together and they don’t see a color when they are with each other. They just think of everyone as a brother who they have a very good bond with.
Race never crosses any of their mind as you can see how all the boys accept one another. They eat pasta together every Thursday as a family, they stay at the school late everyday to get better at their craft. Being on a diverse team is the best thing that can happen because not only do you learn about other people's cultures but you can also build a bond with that person's family and see how everything is looked at from other perspective.
