From my experience, the administrative staff is extremely dedicated to their jobs, and do their best to keep the building safe. As for teachers, some are amazing, and others make you hate the class forever. The school spirit is occasionally lacking, and I personally feel that the club selection is underwhelming. Overall, MTHS is the best high school around, with a diverse culture and course options, and generally supportive peers.

I’ve attended this high school for all four years of high school and the one thing that I could really praise about the school is the academics. They offer many ap as well as ib classes from which you can choose from. They also excel in the variety and achievement levels of all the different sports. The diversity in the school is a little spotty at times as a large portion of the school comes affluent white families. The school administration is also lacking as they never really punish anyone but rather will only give out warnings. The school lacks the proper knowledge to handle students with learning disabilities and poor mental health; there are people who have been waiting for 6 months to see the school psychologist. Most of the school culture revolves around fundraising for mini-thon or prom which means that any attempt to fund raise for anything else will be steamrolled by the administration.
We had multiple children come through MTHS, and although each experience was a bit different, all were excellent. MTHS has top notch academics, but also support for students that need the help. Multiple AP classes and IB offered. Flexible with curriculum and even offer cyber classes. Many extracurricular activities. Teaches accessible and care about their students and their futures. 5 star experience all around.
