Mendota Township High School District No. 280 Reviews
I was highly involved in the music department, Interact club, tennis, Spanish club, National Honor Society, Spanish National Honor Society, and more! I found the facilities and food to be exactly what I would expect from a well-functioning high school. I also strongly feel that we were given the tools and time needed to perform well on the SAT, and other required exams. MHS did a fantastic job of preparing us, whether we said we wanted it or not. Additionally, the variety of clubs that were offered was a huge plus for me. For a school of roughly 600 students, the options are vast! I appreciated the system that is in place requiring coaches and club sponsors to split time evenly if there is a conflict.
Mendota High School was a great place! Everyone there is very helpful and will help you with anything. The teachers there truly care about how you do in their class and the 4 years there was amazing, I was I could go there for one more year. Also the food is excellent and the administration does a great job of keeping the rules in place and was to make Mendota High School and great experience!
No school can really be defined as being "the best" but when discussing my high school, it is most definitely great! Our new "pulley system" focuses on everyone in the school helping each other out in order to achieve. With it being in a small town, everyone knows everyone so I believe that pushing this point of view has helped other students realize what it means to be empathetic. The teachers put their heart into this attitude in the sense of applying it in the classroom as well. With my experiences, no teacher has ever truly given up on a student that wants to overcome an obstacle in the class. The tutors are always there to provide support. Participation was becoming more of a requirement in a lot of classes too. It was said that by doing so, more students will be more comfortable in engaging in speeches and acquire better social skills.
