I love this school! It's the best school ever! Greatly prepares you for the college experiance. Everyone really wants to help you succeed. The teachers are the best and really care about each and everyone of their students. The work load is pretty big, but it definatley prepares you for college. Along with the challenging work load you can take as many AP /ECE classes as you want beginning your freshman year!

My Almamater, so many great memories I miss this school so much. The climate is excellent and the teachers really do care about the students success! Moving forward from MSMHS has brought me great success in my college experience along with a rigorous attitude on life. Furthermore, my peers worked in a collaborative environment so that we all don't let each other down.
Our daughter has had a great experience there. She has thrived academically and socially. Because the school is a Marine Science school, her love for science in general, but especially of the marine field has blossomed! The teaching staff is some of the best I've experienced and the advisors are awesome. She has turned into a young women, ready for college in DC, ready for anything!
