Teacher effectiveness: Somewhat effective
August 31, 2015
Some teachers are very effective. Some teachers are ineffective. It's impossible to comment on all teachers as a collective.

Save your time, Dont go here!! Yeah there is some good teachers but for most part they are just doing what they have been told to do they dont go the extra mile to help kids out. They are more or less like babysitters. The place is never clean and nobody seems to care. The food is expensive here for what we actually are getting which isnt much. The school, I'd have to say has a major drug problem. Others may argue with this, but the town has absoulutly nothing for kids to do so thats why I think so many turn to drugs. I mean its pretty ridiculous how much drugs are in that school. You can walk through the hallway and you will witness a drug deal. The staff doesnt help with it either , most just turn a blind eye to it. As far as disiplinary action...its horrible! I sort of think the staff favors those of the students they know personally and others just fall to the wayside. They say they are strict with their policies but they really arent. No wonder why so many drop out, switch schools or end up in summer school. Its just simply not a great school I wouldnt put my kids through this school after the expireince I had.

All I have to say is I'M SORRY to my daughter for moving to what I thought was a good school. I now know different. I'm SO SORRY. Good thing we are moving to prevent my last daughter from being an MHS grad.

Faculty is TERRIBLE AND NO HELP to students !!!! Logo crisis?- nah, more like Teacher/faculty/staff actually doing their JOB ! - get it?, job, you wanted to be in this field, you chose the career ... now DO IT !!!! ...... There ARE very talented young kids in this area and look to their teachers to guide them to the future. It doesn't help at ALL, when they turn their backs and drop the ball ! Yes, some do help, I'm sure, but the ones that don't are the ones that RUIN it for the rest ! - RIGHT Ms Kolby !?!

For the past decade, ACT scores at MHS have rivaled the best in the area and are well above state and national averages. Student graduates succeed superbly in college writing, science and math. As an MHS graduate, I am proud to have been a part of this tradition. Some of the concerns in other posts are pretty superficial: crowded hallways, smelly bathrooms. In terms of dedicated staff and challenging curriculum, MHS is hard to beat.

I am a current student in MHS, and i have to say, it is not a good school. The hallways are always too crowded, it takes me almost four minutes to get to a classroom thats only around the corner, and just recently the ceilings started leaking on the second floor; the solution? Trash cans in the middle of the hallway making this already crowded area even more cramped. Some of the teachers are amazing and dont deserve to work there. Another teacher had commented that some of the students in my class need to study more because they're, 'just plain stupid.' They pack some of the classes to the top as well. The study hall with the most students this year has 76 people in it. Also, as someone has posted before, most of what the school cares about and spends money on is the football team. Don't go here.

My son just graduated from MHS and I have to agree,the place looks pretty disgusting. From the 1st day that we toured the school,my heart sank knowing I would be sending my son there; everywhere you looked,it seemed dirty and outdated. It must be even more depressing as a student to try to learn anything in that environment. My son was in LD classes(2) and that made him even less prepared for the real world or secondary school,because they never allowed him to break away from that crutch,due to the funding that comes from having LD kids. I have a younger child yet to go through the high school years,and I cringe to even think about sending her there.

This school does an incredible job at meeting student needs. Students today do not make it easy to help them learn but the staff at MHS go the extra step to support the kids.

If I had to say one good thing about MHS, I would say that it has excellent test scores. If I had to say one negative thing about it, I wouldn't know what to pick. As others have noted, the school is dirty. The hallways are so crowded that navigating through an intersection is worse than rush hour in New York City. There are few windows--students are lucky to have more than one classroom with them. As a result, many students feel trapped, or that the school is a prison (this was my own sentiment for four years). Use of the internet for research purposes is nearly impossible, because nearly everything is blocked. But the worst thing is, no one respects anyone else. Students don't respect each other, the administration doesn't respect the students and often treats them like children, and the students don't respect the administration.

I graduated from MHS in 2004 and currently attend UWM. I can proudly say that MHS prepared me for success in college. Every teacher that I had really cared about the students and there are plenty of activities to be a part of. The atmosphere is that of a typical high school and I always felt safe there. Overall I would love for my kids to attend MHS some day.

I currently attend MHS, and I find the acedemic progams sufficent yet teachers don't seem to care who graduates and who fails. The most important thing in this school to most teachers appears to FOOTBALL, and Liberal views. I am disapointed in MY school.

I graduated from Mukwonago H.S. a little over a year ago. While I was there, the quality of the entire school declined. The bathrooms were hideous, they smelled and were dirty. The floors, throughout the entire school, were always dirty with trash all over the place. The teachers didn't seem to care what was going on. The hallways were packed to the point where you couldn't get to the door on the other side of the hall without walking down a little further and turning around. The price of food went up every year I was there and I know it is continuing to rise. The price to attend school is also extremely high, along with the price to park. For how much the students/parents pay, the school should be in much better condition.

I have a daughter that goes here and I personally believe that this school isn't fit to be running. The halls are too crowded, there isn't a lot of discipline, fights break out everyday, and it's never clean. I also think that anyone who sends their son or daughter here is out of their mind. What are you thinking? You should really reconsider your decision if this is one of them. Even if it does mean a little more a of distance to travel it will be worth it. This school is of poor quality.
