MHS is a very big school with nearly 2,500 kids. The staff is amazing and so are most of the students. Sports are a very big part of our school and we take our school spirit very seriously! Our theatre and choir programs are very good, as well as our marching band. The art program is also amazing. Academics are a very big part of our school, and there is an abundance of courses to take, including CCP and career tech. Overall, I love being a student here!

I never took classes on the Mentor High School campus, as I did full-time College Credit Plus (CCP) and Lakeland Community College. It was a great opportunity to get ahead, as I received my Associates degrees in Arts and Science BEFORE I graduated high school! Definitely recommend. Administration and counselors were extremely helpful and nice.
The faculty are all very inspiring and help students with their academic and personal goals. The extracurricular activities and sports are very involved and the school makes academic resources accessible to students both in the classroom and outside of it. In addition to resources, Mentor provides students with a great community network with college help and test preparation. The teachers are committed to teaching with a purpose and having the students become engaged with the content and material in the class. Our construction is up to date and most of the classrooms and accessible for advanced technology including new computers.
