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!

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.
The overall experience was good. As with everyone, some of the teachers were not as involved with there students and you could tell they really didn't care. Other teachers would put in extra time with students and build actual relationships with each student. The school is getting better at preparing for college. They are putting more focus on act scores to help students and offer multiple college classes, although if you plan on going out of state or to a four year university, the college classes are useless as they don't often transfer as you'd like or at all. The only other thing that needs major improvement is administration working with the mca.
