Posted November 16, 2012

I am an average 10th grade girl at MHS, and let me just say this place is the best of the best. The classes are well divided, the teachers are great, and student life is always fun. We have a great marching band and so many good people who support this school because they probably went here too. If you are considering letting your son or daughter go to this school, well that would definitley not be a mistake.

Posted April 6, 2006

MHS is the ideal learning enviroment for students. Thoughtful, caring, and deicated staff make this school the absolute best. A principal that knows every child's name, that knows the parents names, and that takes a moment every grading period to send home an encouraging note to the student. These are only a few examples of the devotion the staff have. We moved here from a school 3 times this size and our children have developed to be more confident, have a higher self esteem, and have a strong academic path to the future. Community involvement is very high, not just for athletic teams, but for robotics, beta, PTA, and after-prom. I honestly wish all kids could have an education like the one my children have received at MHS. What a wonderful world this would be.
