Administration does not like innovative students who would like to create new opportunities to improve student life. New clubs--they don't want them, big or small. The lack of support for students trying to start clubs at MHS changed my perspective on the administration. MHS does not like change in any way.
There is a lot of tension between administration and teachers. Staff will converse with each other in the halls and complain about problems with administration. It's always interesting to listen in. MHS lost some great staff during my time at MHS: Janessa Reid in counseling, Mr. Smyth in orchestra, a few French teachers...
Providing all students with iPads was probably the best thing to happen during my time at MHS. I used my iPad for everything!
I had some phenomenal teachers. Most teachers will let you redo quizzes to boost your grade. Great teachers: Mrs. Stockheimer (math), Mrs. Sadowska (English), Mr. Will (tech ed), Mrs. Dargenio (Psych), Ms. Fassler (Natural Sciences).

Personally, I found this school to lack the oomph it needed to be a good high school. The teaching administration is very good, boasting some very helpful teachers, but the office administration often seems like they don't want to be there. The school environment is overall too controlled, with students feeling oppressed at time, like how we lack a say in our own school functions. But this school has great AP courses, and really helps students prepare for more difficult courses. There are many sports and clubs, but there is an unnecessary focus on football (like most high schools). The students are relatively friendly, but it occasionally feels fake. I rated the school as very good because, even though it has its flaws, I learned so much, and still had a good experience.
Fantastic education! Teachers care about your well being. They offer AP courses. Their music department has band, orchestra, symphonic orchestra, and choir.
