Teacher effectiveness: Very ineffective

the teachers lack the education to be effective teachers, the attitude is it is a job not a passion

the school suppresses students with these gifts, the leaders do not like to see the majority of the students succeed

the principle, teachers , and guidance department do not have the concern for the students to offer these values.

the school leaders, teachers, and team so called coached do not know the meaning of these words, they do not harbor these traits therefore they cannot teach these traits

The principle and guidance department are equivalent to first graders , they are more concerned with popularity than academics. The athletic department is just as bad, the director and the girl varsity volleyball coach have no idea how to manage their sports. The school as a whole does not have integrity nor courage, even when they pride themselves as such. Don't make the same mistake I did by listening to the promises this school made prior to coming here there are much better schools within 20 miles of this failing cess pool

The leaders in the school truly don't care the fighting and promiscuity drug use is rampant in school and at games

MHS honestly sucks. Sure there are a good things here and there and some GREAT teachers, most of the teachers actually want to help the students and they do their jobs correctly. Some of the principals on the other hand... hahaha. Acting like they're "a perfect 4 star school" If your child isn't what they consider "popular" then they won't get the treatment they deserve. MHS is a joke, I do NOT recommend enrolling your child there.

If you have a child that doesn't seem to fit in at regular schools, because of religous or because they are quiet and they are being bullied, give this school a call. The principle Mr Roll, the teachers and staff are all so sweet and personable making any child fit in. They teach about God and have a great curriculum. What a difference this school has made on my kids. Thank you all so much!

The administration is not willing to listent to or even meet with many parents that have concerns, even if your child is virtually an all 'A' student.
