Excellent school district! Hands on, highly personalized education. Leader in seed to table education with gardens and nutrition education. Outreach and participation in external resources such as area universities, corporate grant experiences and community businesses as well as community organizations is extensive. One of the very first sites for homeless or indigent male high school students is highly successful—diminishing the drop out rate. Weekend On Wheels (WOW) not only provides weekend nutrition for students but is managed by the high school students. The school district is known, area wide, as the site of multiple educational and social innovations. Test scores and academic depth related to economic levels is simply amazing! Mostly, these kids reflect their teachers and community, they care!!

MRH is amazingly unique school. The rough past and metamorphosis of MRH into an award winning school instills a sense of pride in every MRH student. Some of the changes that were made at MRH was the implementation of sustainability initiatives. School gardens, bee hives, aquaponics labs and compost bins and just some of the projects that students are connected with at MRH. MRH also hosts its own student and staff led food pantry, Weekend on Wheels, for the students and families of the district that need assistance with food on the weekends. Lastly, MRH also has a one to one laptop program. Every student of the school is given a laptop. Technology is integrated into every classroom and most homework is done online. Students email, turn in homework, and complete projects all on their personal laptop which is theirs to keep at the completion of their senior year.
Teachers at MRH genuinely care about their students. Teachers from all subject areas can be found way before school starts and hours after school ends in their classrooms just incase students need to come in early to go over homework or ask questions. Our principal runs the school by the motto, "Teachers have a right to teach, and students have the right to learn". Our principal and all the teachers believe in every student having the right to great and engaging education and infringing upon the rights of another student to learn will not be tolerated.
