I really enjoy Mentor High School, a lot of the students and teachers there are really nice and helpful. Every year the school has made adjustments to their academics and ways of running the school system to improve schooling for the students. Mentor has a lot to offer and is typically good when asking questions for you when you need help or assistance. Our athletic and academic teams are really good along with our coaches and teachers. If there is one thing that could make Mentor High better, it would be if the counselors could be a little bit more helpful or informative, sometimes that is lacking but like I said earlier, for the most part Mentor High is an amazing school with very kind and helpful staff.

My experience at Mentor High School has been beneficial, I have been continuously prepared for college and the real life world. The teachers reach out to the students and reassure their learning is being followed at a good pace. Teachers at Mentor understand that sometimes you aren't going to understand right away but they want to help you understand eventually. The principles and administrators work to keep the school a safe and functioning environment in which we can learn without distractions.
Mentor High School is a good school and a great city. It has mostly wonderful modern facilities, including a huge auditorium and huge classrooms conducive to blended learning. However, despite all this, some areas of the building are neglected, like the music wing where the ceiling leaks water whenever it rains. When it comes to sports, clubs, and academics, Mentor has so many opportunities for everyone, and odds are you'll be able to find something you like. However, the student culture is relatively cliquey, and although members of specific clubs are supportive of each other, many groups are not supportive of one another. All in all, Mentor has been a very good high school experience, and the school only continues to improve in every way.
