Raised two kids through MG. My husband and I are also MG grads. Both kids at UW Madison. Math and English programs very strong. Great music and sport programs. Teachers that stay in the district long term. Highly recommend.

I'm very happy with MGHS. They have a challenging curriculum, huge assortment of extracurricular activities including strong athletic and music programs and engaged teachers who care. My daughter has a disability and the school support couldn't be better. I'm glad I chose to live in Monona.


Teacher effectiveness: Neutral


- a
i think they are effective as they can be if students are willing to learn

Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
it depended upon the class - some teachers like to start the homework in class so if there are any questions that can be addressed in class - i think that's a good idea

Develops character: Neutral


- a
I believe the school can do what it can however alot of the honesty etc starts at home




- a
Small school environment which is having to deal with larger school issues such as: race issues, student attitude issues and clique issues to name a few. the school does provide a positive and strong academic feel if a student is willing to commit. The school has a good music and athletic programs.



- a
Still very much small school attitude. Treatment depends on your last name and bank account size.



- a
The academic side is very strong. Students learn a lot. There is not a lot of diversity but that is mostly due to the Monona and Cottage Grove area's not having a lot of diversity. Their is a lot of help granted to those who need it with a lot of specialty teachers there for people with different disabilities or just people who struggle at school. The teachers can be strict but they really prepare you for the real world. If you mess up on a test you don't get a ton of retakes or anything. The school has drama but not more than any other high school. Sports mean a lot to this school and there is a lot of school spirit. People for the most part support all athletics and music. I like it here because of the AP classes offered and the nice teachers.




- a
it may deserve a 5, but mghs is NOT diverse and has a lot of cliqes like most schools. very white and no non white teachers, there is staff, but still. It's all sports and music. The kids aren't as talented as some say, just a bunch of butt kissers.



- a
The faculty tries to connect with the students through many different means, from posters containing autobiographies to simply talking in a friendly manner. The students can receive help from various resources and are given an outstanding amount of electives and extracurricular activities. It also ranks high nationally in AP test pass percentages, ACT scores, and SAT scores.
