Mendocino High School is a great school if you are a student who adores community and involvement. The experience Mendocino High offers is truly dependent on the effort you put into your education. This school gives students the opportunity to express themselves through many different means, and that is something I personally love. However, as a senior going through the college process, I do not feel on the right track or supported by my counselor. Teachers are fairly easy going and have young fresh opinions. The sports are very fun, but we are a division 6 school and don't even have a football team. Find yourself at mendo high and you'll experience high school like no other.

Mendocino high school is a great school to attend. Teachers are always friendly and offer a warm hand to students who need help. The students are a tight knit community and love to help each other out. Everyone is talented in unique ways. Since Mendocino is so small, everyone knows everyone. This gives the students and the teachers a intimate family like connection. Mendocino High school is a safe place to be in and around. We are cultured and happy to see new students arrive. One thing I would like to see change for future students is, more classes offered. Another thing I would like to see change is some more updated facilities. The middle school got rebuilt but not the high school and it has been the same buildings since my parents were in high school.
Overall a very supportive and safe environment to learn, grow, and socialize. On the smaller side, but because of it it's a very close community and relations between teachers and students are strong.
