MHS does not expect students to continue their education past community college; therefore, does not give students the tools needed to do so. A very slim variety of classes are available for students and advanced courses are only available online, however, the school very rarely allows students to take those courses. The environment at the school is very tense because staff and administration butt heads constantly. Teachers bring their outside problems into the classroom and administration has no boundaries set in place for becoming too close to a student. School rules look strict on paper, but are very rarely enforced. MHS teaches students that they most likely will not succeed and that rules do not apply to them.

In Mathews, since it is such a small community, it is all about what your last name is or who you know. Everyone knows your business.
I would like to see more school administration being involved with student activities so they understand what exactly goes on in their schools and with their students.
