There are multiple good things I loved about Maize High! To start the teachers are great. They are always prepared and super nice. I almost always love being class. I have made some life-long friends at Maize high, whom have made me a better person. Although, the one thing I would like to see a change at Maize High is the diversity.

I really enjoyed my experience at Maize! This public school gave my a lot of options for curriculum as they had an honors program and an AP program. I was highly involved in high school, however we didn't do a great job at maintaining diversity in the different clubs. The people who were involved, were involved in every club.
Faculty and Staff continuously strive to make sure all students feel welcomed. As well as, they allow students participate in activist movements and defend the morally right ideals of students. Teachers make an effort to build meaningful relationships with students that last long after graduation. As well as, Maize High makes a significant effort in preparing students for college between block scheduling and College courses specific to individual career paths.
