Mountain Home School District Reviews

Its terrible, I'm only giving it 3 stars because its basically my home, my only high school. We get no funding, the teachers are either the best or the complete worse, and most kids either drop out or go to Bennett High School. The band program gets no recognition, the kids are rotten or Mormon, and the food is cardboard. The security is terrible. Theres been shattered windows and vandalized cars and stolen objects. Even I, mind you, kicked a hole THROUGH the wall. That's how cheap it was. My only punishment was to sweep a gym (our cafeteria) for 5 days. Anyways, I feel like the vice principal is on drugs, mainly because I know who she got them from (a student, who she later expelled). Yep this town is ghetto.

I would like to see the layout of the schools change. I would like to see more funding go towards the environment to make it more modern, less prison-esque. Too much went towards technology that was rarely used, and now it goes towards technology that is not needed. I liked the offerings of dual credit and a.p. classes. I would like to see more in the future, but for a small town school, it was amazing the amount of opportunities given.
I like the Mountain Home school District because it is a small community and we all come together in times of need. We all know how to work together and support each other to get through high school. The teachers and staff are wonderful here, and so is the community as a whole. If I could change something, it would be the growth of the district as a whole. Since we are a small town, the businesses here don't want competition, so we don't grow as a city, which make it to where nobody wants to move here, which results in poor outcome of athletes for sports.
