The Mendocino Community High School (incorrectly listed as a continuation high school) is an amazing place for students to learn. The staff is made up of three Teachers and one Administrative Assistant. Students are encouraged to explore points of interest through self directed studies and self motivation is encouraged. Students receive individualized education plans nurtured by a caring staff. Students attending MCHS are lucky indeed!
