Mahomet-Seymour is an excellent school academic wise. They aren't very diverse, but they have so many different clubs and sports available to students. The teachers are all wonderful, and you can tell that they truly care about their students. All teachers want to help students be the best that they can be and value that. I feel like the school is always working hard to improve, whether it's the cafeteria food, class structure, teaching style, or the building itself. Mahomet is a very safe and caring community and the school reflects that. The students push themselves to be the best that they can be. No one is scared to go to school and the teachers make every day fun!

I wish that the school included more options for lunches. We recently switched companies and now our lunch options are very bland and not diverse. The teachers are very involved and helpful, but I wish that we had more clubs and activities for upper class man. I also wish that my school was more diverse. People often say that growing up in Mahomet is like growing up in a bubble because there is not much that happens. Everyday seems to be the same and you encounter the same type of people, which is why our diversity is rated so poorly. Then, our college readiness level is superb. Our teachers devote a majority of their time in class to preparing us for college and I look forward to see if it pays off in the future. Lastly our administration is average. They are average because they do not do anything to make them poor, but they also do not go above and beyond to help better our school district.
Mahomet has been an awesome experience because the teaching is second to none, but even better is the small town feel! Everyone knows everyone and I’m able to grow relationships with many of those around me. It makes the learning atmosphere around me so much more comfortable and fun!
