As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

I love MCHS. I am currently enrolled here and haven't stopped loving it. We have a great student body, many wonderful teachers, and awesome administrators. School spirit means everything to MCHS. Especially when it comes to have the best Girls Varsity Basketball Team in Class 5A #1 in the State of Iowa!

Many good teachers, but many poor ones and administration afraid of setting moral standards. Many difficulties also come by the overly involved and regulating government pushing false and non-education items under the guise of stopping bullying or being kind(glorifying) to alternative lifestyles.

I think this school has a lot of work on its shoulders because of the environment and the willingness to allow children to be bullied and get beaten up by other students....but thats just my opinion!

I've always really liked MCHS. I've never had a family member go to school there, but I've always liked visiting. The sports teams work hard and they have an excellent choir program. The newspaper is phenominal and there is a good variety of AP courses.

Our teachers try very hard to get us through the year as long as we're willing to work with them respecfully. Although some teachers may favor students in sports that does not inable you to succeed. I do believe however that our principal does need to be more aware of whats going on in his school and become more hands on istead of letting others construct events.

The school is unfair to students not involved in sports and clubs. The building is decrepit and not a very good learning environment. The principal Mr. Weaton is a pompas jackass that treats students in a favoristic manner. He does not understand the fact that some parents have real jobs and cannot rearrange their lives to fit his needs. He is not a good administrator in the least. the teachers are not very good at their jobs as they don't help some students willing or not as much as they could. Over all the faculty and building are in rather poor condition. They are also unconsiderate of ruraly located students and the possibility of them getting injured during winter weather.
