I am currently a student attending this school . I highly think that my school has lots of educated students that attend this school. We may not have the best school but we sure are part of the top 10 and top 25 in the state , so therefore I really don't like this website because this is inaccurate to all of our test scores we really have high ratings and percentages as of the 2013 2014 school year . So those who judge please watch what you say or said because we are very educated students we ranked number one in the top 10 last year and we were higher than all of those other north shores and north muskegon and heights school so I would love if you people stop hating on muskegon high school Thanks : jasmine

Both my children graduated from Muskegon High School. They both carried grades through school. But most of all, students that went to Muskegon High School are very tolerant of handicapped people. Muskegon Public Schools also pioneered many of the programs for handicapped, and special needs children.

Yeah I am currently a senior at The University of Michigan. I think that Muskegon provides students with all the resources that one needs to thrive in society if the student wants to. We can talk about the parent involvement not being what it would but that is not an accurate reflection of the school as a whole. Muskegon is one of the few high schools in the area that provide a great education while also having a diverse breadth of student backgrounds. This school teaches the students more life skills than they realize and that is one of the most beneficial things about it.

But lets be real what high school does perpare you for life after school. Some things you just have to figure of for you self. Muskegon High has lots of academics scholarships to choose from. Now its your child choice to fill one of the scholarships out. Im proud to be a product of Muskegon Senior High School

I was a student at MHS and I think the school is great overall, but its lacking in help for students struggling accademically. I am caucasion and from a school in Prince Charles, LA. And I was afraid because I wasnt used to the 'urban' atmosphere, but I made a diversity of friends within the first 2 months I attended. I would just urge the school to work on accidemically getting these students into an successful careers.

Muskegon High School has a rich tradition. It is a wonderful school but that is usually hidden by our bad reputation. Sure a few students don't make the best choices but there are even more who actually go to school, do their work, and are all around good. This school needs more parent involvement and focus more on academics than on the football program.

I just would like to note that no one has said anything about academics. Athletic and music programs are nice, but aren't things that necessarily prepare students for the future. Students need an education to fall back on. So let's not sugarcoat the facts with talk of awards and accolades. Let's talk about how Muskegon leaves its best and brightest students out to dry. Students graduate in the Top Ten of their class, but the administration makes no effort to find these people a way to pay for college. This can account for why some of their smart, but disadvantaged students remain here to become another statistic. So let's start telling the truth about Muskegon.

This is one of the best schools in the nation in my opinion. It has one of the top 20 football programs in the nation. The teachers are nice and keep kids in line. There is a fight once in a very small while, but they get kicked out for 10 days no matter what. They have the best weight room in the state, hence the great athletic programs. The musial programs are great. Those are just some of the many reasons why this school is the best.

Need a principal with compassion and understanding for all children not just a choosen few. Teachers need new text books to keep up with new technology and world events. Great for sports, excellent music program. Expecially the band program. Great Band Directors. They pay attention to a students needs not only learning but if the family is having a problem. They try and help all the students.
