Awesome school, great diversity, lots of extra curricular activities. Sports programs are coming up and academics are great
The teachers are awesome and the techniques of teaching are suitable to every person. Thank you
I'm quite disappointed this year. Kids had their schedules but the classes are not equally split during the term. Sfaff were off this whole summer so there was no way to change their schedules. They somehow blamed it on their computers and the counselor said she will try. I have not heard anything back so that means, no. Yes they do give seniors first pick, then the rest of the kids in that school will get filtered into the classes that are available. My guess is, its not much of a concern if students passes or fails because if they were more concerned, their master schedule wouldn't filter these kids like they did this year. Someone has to take blame so blame the student and blame the school computer. I'm quite disappointed. Also, its hard to get a hold of the principal to voice my concern. His staff will always be right I guess.
I am about to be a sophomore at this school and i little complaints. The campus is clean, there are few fights between students, and the teachers and staff are totally cool. There are some teachers that i don't really like but i have met many that i can really connect to. The highlight of the school for me is he Physical Education department. From what i've been told, MTHS is #1 when is comes to EGUSD's fitness level. PE is my least favorite subject, but i have to say that i appreciate the PE system. It's intense and hard at first and has left me terribly sore for about a week, but it has increased my stamina &level of fitness. There are opportunities to take a variety of different classes too. My freshman year alone, i was able to take 8 different classes. You can take 3-4 electives, depending on credits, in one school year or take more AP/HONORS classes. The down side is that you get less time to learn all of the material for the CST's. Instead of having the same classes 1 school year and having a year to absorb the information, your time is cut in half. Other than that, this school is really cool. This school is a better alternative to the other schools in the area.
Personally i think Monterey trail high school is looked down upon. Its a great high school but not as wealthy as other high school because our population in the school are mostly students who live under poverty we don't have some of the benefits other schools have. Athletically i think our school only cares about 5 sports which are football basketball baseball volleyball and track and field, Our water polo team doesn't even have a goal net to practice with our swimming is looked down upon our wrestling is extremely looked down upon and so is our tennis i purely blame the athletic director. But over all i think its a average school athletically and education wise.
Both of my daughters attend MTHS and I just love it!! The diversity, the staff, the teachers and the administration are all superb. The school has so much to offer your student: sports, AP classes with wonderfully gifted teachers, visual and performing arts clubs, other organizations and affiliations. The is such a sense of oneness and commitment to higher education. Everyone has the opportunity to shine at MTHS in one form or another. The students support and encourage one another and the teachers really get to know their students and the parents and are willing to work on any issues or struggles at they arise. Very secure campus and well staff. I just love this school and cannot be more proud that my daughters are a part of this little community.
Each student is unique and different and those differences make up the rich tapestry that is Monterey Trail. Our students are the most diverse and speak more different languages than any other high school campus in our area. Our football team is having an amazing starting season and our school spirit is at it's highest point in the 6 years that we've been open.
I am a student at Monterey Trail High School and I am sad to see that our school keeps being overlooked as a quality school. We pride ourselves on the fact that we have grown into a better teaching facility. We have one of the most diverse campuses, great teachers, and there is a great atmosphere here at school. There are a large number of classes and extracurricular activities offered. I look forward to another year as a mustang.
It has been a long time since I was last in high school and am very pleased at the level of elective offerings at the high school including engineering, digital design, computer science, and law courses. My daughter is involved in many clubs and activities on campus.
This is a great school for students. There are many AP and Honors classes available; many teachers are dedicated and willing to help students. Personally, I feel I can depend on all my teachers and see most of them outside of class (most of them are involved in some sort of extra-curricular such as National Honor Society, CSF, Academic Decathlon). The school strives to offer a supportive environment. Groups of students such as Link Crew and ASB work with teachers and administrators to make the school more welcoming and to promote school spirit. Leaders of the many clubs seem to work with each other often. Most importantly, we continue to work hard to raise the standards and meet high expectations in academics and sports and with any other endeavors we take on.
im so proud of my school-Monterey Trail!! Its the best school !! MT's teachers are verry nice
Great elective offerings. My husband and I are glad to see the focus on college preparedness at this school. Teachers are some of the best that we have interacted with. We thought that the teachers in Davis were terrific but must say that the teachers here are very good as well.
My son attends this school, and it offers so much more than the schools in the bay area did. The principle encourages everyone to participate in the school in some way be it sports, clubs, helping others, ect. They work really hard to keep parents informed, and the school loop system is priceless. You can keep track of what is due in each class, and what is comming up in long term projects. This helps the parent really know what their kids should be doing as well as what their current grades are on assigments, and over all in each class. I think it is a great place to get your child prepared for college, which is a big focus for the school.
I believe that Monterey Trail High School is a great school. It's the most diverse school that i know of and I am truly proud to say that I go there. Students get along great and the teachers are very generous and always willing to spend time in order to help us excel in our academic progress. Also, when it comes down to athletics, we have great sportsmanship. We have won many games in all the sports in our delta league.
This school is so much better than our previous school in Texas. I am glad to see that the school has a strong emphasis on technology. They use a program called school loop which is great to keep track of grades and assignments and to contact teachers.
I have come to the conclusion that this school is not good for your child if you want him or her to get a good education. If sports is an important part of your childs development then enroll them with an established high school with a good track record.
This school is a great school and it is good in academics. The sports here are great and the players get a long really well. The academic standards are great.
