Being a senior, I can honestly say attending Mendenhall High was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. The school is small so it’s easier to have one on ones with faculty members/coaches. The Administration really cares about the students future and their time spent at Mendenhall high school. The only things I can really ask for is more extracurricular activities and clubs for the students to partake in. Other than that, Mendenhall High School is a great choice for a school you should attend!

There are many elements that make my school great so far. For one, the school spirit is unbelievable. We love our tigers! The elements that make our school great starts with our principle. He is a straight-forward, no nonsense, caring principle. He wants the best for us and I think that is the key for every great school. The faculty also play a part in these elements. They make sure we get everything we need for succeeding. Last but not least, the student. We are what makes the school. We make the school bad or good. There's no defined decription. All of these elements together make my high school great.
When I first attended Mendenhall High School it was a D school. As I promoted to the next grade, my school also promoted as a school. The teachers are very great and actually work with to help you strive to get to your goals. From freshman year to senior year, Mendenhall high School has went from a D school to a B school. Out of all my years being at Mendenhall High School I have to say that this year has been far most one of the best years of my life. I wish it could last a lifetime.
