The extracurricular opportunities are endless at governor mifflin. We have so many sports and clubs it's crazy. I personally just bowl for our high school. They actually realize bowling is a sport, not many places do. We also have football, and gold and cheer leading and club ice hockey and so many more. Also for clubs we have language clubs, book clubs, harry potter clubs, anime clubs and so many more!
Review Governor Mifflin Senior High School
Over the past few years Governor Mifflin is going in a great new direction. The community base of mustang nation is bringing everyone together and making the distinct a family. With the new addition of Chromebooks the school is doing everything it can to make sure its students have the bet chance for success. For my time there i have enjoyed it and feel like it is a good school. There are not many bad things about the school except the students in it, most teachers are phenomenal and want the best for their students. It is a great atmosphere and a wonderful thing to be apart of.
My overall experience was okay. My grades were decent, and I had a decent amount of friends. I love the school spirit that the administration shows. They show respect to every student that walks through the door, and try their best to maintain a safe learning environment. Governor Mifflin has many different pep rallies throughout the school year, whether its boosting the district's school spirit, or raising money to help a family in need. Something unique about the school is that everybody works together as a family, especially in times of need. For example, my gym teacher was diagnosed with cancer during my senior year. The high school put together a lip synch video to "Roar" by Katy Perry in order to support her and boost her up. This helped her to maintain confidence and positivity during her rough patch.
