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.
