The school is overall an amazing experience. The campus is beautiful, there’s many great teachers, administration and people to meet, and the diversity really structures students social abilities. Anyone can fit in anywhere and greatness is encouraged. We’re very good at basketball and football which bring a lot of school spirit. The campus is also in a great location of town, it’s close to everything you can ask for!

Mainland High School is a pretty average school. What it really lacks in is the administration and the implementation of it’s own rules. The administration services that the school provides is difficult for applying in the school. They require more than a dozen of papers, and are extremely incompetent when handling a student from another country. For the counselors, they are slow and require a lot a paperwork when it comes to even simple tasks. They make a situation more difficult than it really is, and the student suffers for it. What can be completed in a day requires months, and that it unacceptable in a school that promotes student success. Also, the school fails at implementing rules. These students do not understand that they are not allowed to smoke on school grounds, and they take out their drugs to smoke, and nothing is done to stop them. If the administration system they have is done more efficiently and welcoming, my rating would go higher.
Mainland High School is what you make of it honestly. It isn't the best school out there, but it also isn't the worst either. Some teachers/administration do have their favorite students, and it is obvious. The school focuses most fo their money on football programs and the team itself. It doesn't pay much attention to the performing arts department, and it sucks honestly. But academic wise, your experience is how you push yourself. I was in mostly honors and AP classes, and those teachers were extremely nice towards me and concerned about me succeeding, So, it's how you shape your experience yourself.
