My experience at Maize Senior High School for all of my 4 years were great! I met a lot of new faces, people all over the school! It's different to see and learn about people from Paris, Germany, Russia and Italy. My last year of high school they had gave every student their own Chromebooks. It makes life a whole lot easier! One thing I would possibly have to change is us (the students) not being able to walk the halls at lunch, some people just want to get exercise! Maize Senior High School is the best high school anyone could go to!

It's okay. Somethings could be better like that bathrooms and the food. Most of the teachers are good at their job. They have really good teaching skills and are very helpful. The administration is okay. Sometimes they do a good job and other times they aren't the best at their job. The school counselors on the other hand aren't the greatest in the world. They are very rarely that helpful. The only time that they are really helpful is when trying to change your schedule. The Maize High building itself probably could use some work done on it but the MCA connected to it is wonderful. I love the classes that I've taken in there. The clubs and actives at the school are great. We always have something going on whether its a play or just a club meeting, something is usually going on. The school culture is usually pretty good. Mostly everyone has school spirit and goes to the games to cheer on our athletes.
My experience at Maize High School has been very good so far. There are many teachers at Maize High that I will remember forever, and who have made lasting impressions on my character and knowledge alike. However, there are some teachers who seem to be less self-aware, and this causes them to seem dull or even ignorant. The administration, I would say, is very in tune with the students and respects them deeply. There are a minute few administrators who make themselves out to be the "bad guys" by coming off as too strict or downright crude to students. These seemingly bad qualities are far in-between luckily. The facilities are constantly being updated, and broken things are fixed as soon as possible. I would say that Maize High School is a very great school with minor problems that are over shined by the great staff and the enjoyable learning experiences.
