Mona Shores is my favorite school because of its well rounded excellence. It is so neat to see what the graduates go on to study. I have seen many go on into vocations such as film and photography and others go on to Michigan's large universities to become doctors, lawyers, and nurses. Students have gone on to ivy league universities and have revolutionary careers in the technology world. The sports programs give the students leadership and drive to succeed in life. It has been neat to see Mona Shores hockey players and golf players go on to play for professional teams. As a graduate of the choir program, I really gained a sense of pride in what the school has to offer. Students from the school's music programs have gone on to play in great bands, Chicago's operas, New York's Broadway productions, and L.A.'s film industry. It is a school that a student can pick any avenue to go down and find that they are given the tools to succeed in life.

The real question is how could you not love mona shores? This school is first class in every way possible, the teachers, the students, and especially the extra curricular activities! and what would mona shores high school be with out shawn and molly lawton heading the choir program! they do it all, from teaching choir, to the singing christmas tree (an amazing christmas show featuring the entire choir program, which is 1/4 of the school!) to the pops shows and the broadway quality musicals! I don't have kids yet, but when I do this is the school I want them at! I went to 3 different high schools as a kid, I went to mona shores my sophomore and junior year and those were hands down the best two years of high school.... If only I could find a way back to then.

People intientionally move into the Mona Shores School district so that their kids can attend the school. The teachers are wonderful. I can not say enough about their music programs - from marching band, to orchestra, to jazz band, to choir, and theatre. My two children were able to travel overseas through Mona Shores' music programs - one to Europe and the other to perform on the Great Wall of China. The choir sang in Washington DC, and the band marched at Disney World. The dedication of the teachers to the students has formed life-long bonds. Add that to it's location only a few miles from the shoreline of Lake Michigan, and you have a dream school for all families' children to attend!

We have built a community around years of music and dedication by thousands of people who have been through the program, and the people that just support it.

Mona Shores is the best the city of Muskegon has to offer. I went to Shores from kindergarten until I graduated in 2003 and now my son has started is in kingergarten at the same elementary school I attended. Shores deserves to win this because the teachers care about the students and want them to learn and help the students who need more help learning!! :)

Mona Shores High School is a wonderful learning environment that offers a motley variety of extra curricular activities along with their divers core courses offered. Shores has a newly beautiful campus, but yet, could use some added flair to spice up traditions. Overall, this prize would benefit my school in many ways only the students could imagine.

Throughout the rest of my life I will always be able to look back and notice how much the staff and their dedication to their jobs has affected me. Not only through my required education but also in my life they have helped me become the best person I can possibly be (and still improving). I can honestly say with their sincerity and absolute desire to bring out the best in their students the staff at Mona Shores will forever hold a special place in my heart.

This school has wonderful teachers who truly care about their students and has wonderful programs from athletics to the arts.

Throughout my entire life I have moved to many different locations and attended many different schools, and I have never been taught by a more experienced and personal teaching staff. Our teachers not only have a deep understanding of their material, but they are able to explain it in ways that allow most students to understand it the first time. It is a relief to be able to sit in a classroom where the teacher does not simply hand you a book and tell you to study.

Mona Shores has one of the best Music programs I have ever seen. Shores is a school with much talent inside of it. If you ever hear they're choir sing at their Singing Christmas Tree or their POPS Concert in the spring, you would be blown away. This school deserves this chance to win this award.

Shores always has something great going on. There are a TON of extra curricular activities created to help everyone fit in and enjoy themselves. Our choir program is amazing, each year we put on the 'singing christmas tree' which brings in thousands of people from all over to come watch our presentation. Not only that, but we also have band, orchestra, and tons of clubs such as adventure club, KICK (kids caring for kids), Math club, chess club, soccer, golf, basketball, tennis and all other sports teams, and yes..even knitting club =]. We put on tons of shows all year to involve the student body. Our school is like one big family the students and staff are amazing. It's always a great day to be a Mona Shores Sailor!

Mona Shores demonstrates everything you could ever want in a public school. They have opportunities that allow every child to succeed whether it be in athletics, the arts, or academia. Not only does every student have the opportunity to be involved with these things, but they also feel accepted, the wide array of social scenes allows students to never feel alone, and while there are so many social genres there's also not a feeling of negativity from one to the other. It really truly is a one of a kind school.

This school gave students top billing. Not only did they offer the best education has to give, but they took it a step further by helping them experience the world. Every 3 years the choir would take a group of students on a European Tour, as did the Band. In addition, the theater group would take trips to Stratford on Avon to experience theater like no where else! School Spirit and School Pride were evident in all areas, and throughout the student body. The Port of Sailors is filled with Pride and Excellence!

When I attended Mona Shores High School from 2001-2006, I received a great education in core academic areas as well as the arts. In a changing educational environment with more focus on English and Math, I was offered great opportunities to take AP classes in both subjects. But beyond those areas of academic study, I found myself becoming very involved in our nationally recognized choral program under the direction of Shawn Lawton. While the core areas of Math, English, Science, Social Studies and Foreign Languages were stimulating and prepared me for college, my involvement in the choir program made my years spent in high school memorable. It's a shame to know that the trend in the nation is to cut programs like this because it gives a student a place he or she feels as though they belong. The family mentality and team-like effort of the choir program at Mona Shores should be commended and should continue to grow because of not only the alternate opportunities it offers students, such as a career in music, but also, and more importantly, a home, niche and community it provides students in critical times of their finding themselves as people and the future leaders in our communities.

I just graduated from Mona Shores and it's by far the only school I would want to go to. It has an organization for every interest. The teachers are great and care for their students' education and well-being. Help is always available. It is equally as great in every area. It has great academics, sports, arts, and clubs. The school is constantly improving every aspect of itself. The community is generous and helps the school, financially and with other support.
