I'm very appreciative that I attended Mehlville high school, as I enjoyed my experience all 4 years. I made many friends while I went to Mehlville, and even though I've graduated, I'm still seeing them almost every single day. There are plenty of other amazing students who you will meet and become very close friends with. I will miss my teachers the most! Mehlville has so many spectacular teachers who really care about the well-being of their students. My only complaint, however, is the lack of emphasis on academic performance. Everybody cares about football, and the football team is really bad. I agree, going to the Friday night games is an experience unlike any other, but the school prioritizes the sometimes mediocre athletic achievements over the academic performance of the school. Overall, a great school now that Prop R was passed and the budget has increased!

I loved my time at Mehlville High School. I learned incredible amounts studiously, as well as, about myself. The bonds I formed with teachers has to have been the most important part of my time at Mehlville. The teachers truly cared about the student and were willing to go above and beyond to help them succeed, whether it be buying food for students that couldn't afford it or staying after hours helping struggling students study. My appreciation for the teachers at Mehlville cannot be expressed in words; I can only try by saying that they are the reason Mehlville High School is a national school of character. They taught and continue to teach us how important it is to stay humble, kind, and compassionate. The only thing I'd like to see change is the gratitude the students are giving back to the teachers; the student body should be more grateful for all the hard work our teachers do for us.
I feel like MHS is my home away from home. Obviously, I have spend just as much time there as I have my real home. It's a big school with just about every personality you can think of. I have had some not so good experiences, such as a chemistry teacher who thought a virtual lab on our computers was good enough to count as a real lab experience. This was not the case for the other science teachers who had multiple labs a week. I guess I was one the unfortunate students who got placed in her class. But that experience doesn't compare to rhe many positive ones I've have. Multiple teachers have made an impact on my life. Helped me and inspired me to continue with my dreams.
