School Reviews

5   5/9/2022
I've had both of my children enter MHS from a private K-8. They both did wonderfully there. The teachers go the extra mile to help the students succeed and have excellent student/teacher relationships. If a student needs extra help, it's available when the student puts the time in. Both of my kids graduated with over a 3.0 and have gone on to college. The teaching was also excellent during the pandemic. I listened to the lessons, and they really got the students to engage. If I could give more than 5 stars to MHS I would.
