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).

I only attended Marshfield school district my four years of high school. Overall, I was pleased. With a few exceptions, the teachers that I had were wonderful! I absolutely loved all of my English and History teachers! The counseling staff was terrific! There was great extracurricular activities for all interests as well.
Our high school offers a variety of AP and college level courses. Our high school has been one of the best high schools in Wisconsin for a while, and our administration doesn't expect that to stop anytime soon. Our administration always expects the very best from us, and in return they try and make our school as fun as possible. We have many fun events held all throughout the year. We have a hypnotist come, we have many dances throughout the year, and we have sports all throughout the year.
