I moved to Mascoutah my Sophomore year and was immediately treated like family. I gained friends and met many new people throughout the years. My time at the school has truly prepared me for college life and eventually life in the workforce. I have also been very blessed to have had some of the greatest teachers help me throughout hard classes. I have also been able to learn an abundance of knowledge through these teachers at Mascoutah High School. Along with learning, I have been able to compete on very competitive tennis and basketball teams all three years. Overall, going to Mascoutah High School has been a wonderful experience and I wouldn't trade it for the world.

Mascoutah High School is a perfect place for a high school student. It offers numerous activities that channel the passions and interests of many. It truly values hard work and dedication and grows with it. The faculty of the high school are so welcoming and always ready to help! Everyone's goal is to grow with education and to share and accept knowledge. Student's opinions are highly encouraged and are always heard.
I had several classes where I felt as if I were teaching myself because the teacher did not teach or lecture during class time. Overall the staff is good. There are some issues with certain topics. For instance, the school did not allow students to walk out in support of the March for Our Lives movement. They instead promoted a kindness event that echoed social media urges that put the responsibility of preventing school shootings on students, which I, along with many of my classmates, found issue with. However, the community at Mascoutah is supportive and boasts decent sports programs. The arts programs are quickly going downhill at full fault of those in change of hiring the staff and funding, which is upsetting.
