The only problem I have with this school is how the children aren't allowed to show there shoulders. I get how spaghetti straps can be a bit much, but considering we live in Florida and it is very hot, they should at least have 3 finger rule. I've been up there several times witnessing girls who's butts are hanging out of there shorts, and I don't see them getting dress coded. But god forbid they show their shoulders!

I took my son out of this awful school. Lots of indifferent teachers, which rubs off on the kids. Students have obnoxious attitudes, lots of unhealthy peer pressure! The way students are hanging around the campus looks ghetto.with very little adult supervision during breaks which promotes bullying which I know is going on. Guidance counselors are not very helpful to parents - which is frustrating. Big mistake placing your child here.

I attended MIHS and am proud of being a Mustang. The teachers were wonderful. The only complaint I would have would be Dean Casper, who brushed my problems with a bully as "girl problems." The guidance counselor Mrs. Campbell is amazing and so is her husband. The teachers really bend over backwards to help their students succeed.

I attended MIHS in the early 1970's, an excellent school for students who were interested in learning & making something of themselves, it provided student involvement thru excellent school & community spirit, which continues today. My older son graduated in 2006, is at U of F, an honor student, continues to make excellent grades because of the AP and Honors classes at MIHS; participation in Math Bowls; FBLA; & other clubs. For 3 years he made it to Nationals in FBLA, placed 6th, 6th & 3rd in the country. My youngest son is at MIHS, an honor & gifted student who takes all high level classes, has made all A's since entering MIHS, is going to FBLA National competition next week. I believe the teachers, principal & club participation are excellent. Students can go however far they would like, all they have to do is show an interest. Go MIHS

MIHS is good high school that will be what you make of it. It has a strong honors and AP program and reasonable athletics programs. The music/drama/arts programs are well established and active. Parents tend to participate at the school. There have been few if any discipline issues in the years I have been here (6). The staff is helpful, friendly and very responsive to student and parent needs. I recommend getting to know your child s counselor and keeping in touch to ensure the right classes are taken, especially in the junior and senior years. I would give MIHS a 9 out of 10 rating.

I don't know why the principal rating is so low. I attended this school and Mr. Gary Shiffrin is the best principal a student could hope for. The teachers are fantastic, the parents are well-informed and involved. It's a great school.

MIHS has involved teachers with multiple extracurricular activities. They have excellant advanced placement classes for those students who are so inclined. Many of the students have parents who are NASA engineers etc., so there is an emphasis on the importance of education coming from home.

Florida School Indicators Report lists six years of SAT results for MIHS (as well as other schools). The score listed on this website is the lowest reported score during those six years. If you are interested in MIHS you may want to pull up the report to obtain detailed information on MIHS.
