Moline HIgh School is a larger school for the area with about 2200 students that most find it to be easy to get around and pretty accessible for those in need of assistance, There are many programs for students and they have access to a slew of sports and athletic events. The level of objectionable behavior is modest. The teachers are pretty darn good and some are excellent. The school boosts some of the best "master teachers in the area" as well.... My only thoughts were that the students could be better challenged with more opportunity such as advanced classes in research and science........ The school has opportunity to be more integrated in the community and I would like to see this...I understand the school has one of the highest ratings for state academic contests with other schools in its Jeopardy like contests....it has a lot of potential.....but the school does a great job in raising money for the less affluent.......with its Share Joys program during the holidays. There is available counseling for students as needed and they are encouraged to take advantage of the staff.

Moline High School is overrated. They have a fairly large enrollment, but the staff's involvement is very low. Not sure what the problem is, but I feel changes need to be made and a complete overview of staff is in order. Only one other person rated MHS. That tells you something there. It has the potential to be a far better school with the right administration.

Most teachers are completely disconnected to the student population. It should be required that every teacher at the HS level maintain at least one activity, club, or sport involvement with actual students outside of the regular classroom. This lack of involvement is tradition for the majority of teachers at MHS. The counselors also track kids into really low catagories if parents aren't visible. I believe strongly most teachers view their job as within their class and their tiny viewpoint of the world. I ask, who benefits from this style of teaching? Unless the students plan to live in that room in the future, there is minimal transfer of skills to help them to to prosper in the life beyond each MHS classroom cell.
