Magoffin County High School Reviews

Magoffin County High School is an excellent school for academics, sports, and clubs. After a tornado struck in 2012 heavily damaging the town of Salyersville, Magoffin County High Schoool was relocated to a brand new facility and has multiple new sports complexes. MCHS staff is very involved with the students. The teachers work hard in the classroom and after school ends. Multiple teachers volunteer to say after school hours and tutor students for the ACT or upcoming tests. Inside the classroom, teachers are always on their toes ready to teach and help a raised hand. College readiness is a big deal at MCHS. There are college readiness classes available for students who have not reached their ACT benchmarks. MCHS staff give out "Hornet's" to senior student has reached their ACT benchmarks and get to decorate them however they want and this pasted to a board in the hallway to encourage underclassmen to achieve college readiness. MCHS is a great place to learn.

Magoffin county has a great school. They have very good teachers, and other workers. The sports at this school is great, they let everyone have the chance to play if they want to. We have great academics. They allow you to come after school to get tutoring, and help you study for the ACT. The guidance counselors help you in any way they can, and are always there for you when you need to talk.
Everyone at my high school goes out of their way to make you feel included. This school is perfect, I would not change anything about it.
