School Reviews

5   9/1/2010
Mt Shasta HS is one of those which make you feel at home, the teachers are welcoming and friendly, their quality is excellent and there are several extracurricular activities to pick from. I was an exchange student who graduate in 2006. I will never forget how it felt being scared about going to a new place, very young and alone, but if I can tell something about this HS is that people there will make you feel always at home. I don't know if some of my old teachers are still there but they will always be remembered with love. Johanna Kais. Venezuela.
