MHS is a great small rural school that gives students a lot of opportunities to take advantage of the small school environment. Students are able to connect with teachers because of small class sizes, and are encouraged to be involved in multiple extracurricular activities. This provides students with an abundance of leadership opportunities that leave them well rounded upon graduation. Graduates are very prepared for college and the life after high school.
