I have been very happy with my time at MTCHS. I have learned a lot about technology and computer science and can't wait to continue my high school career! The teachers are very knowledgeable and are able to provide one-on-one learning help due to the low number of enrolled students (200). The school community is similarly affected by the small class size: you quickly become friends with everybody in your grade level, and many others outside of it as well. :)

There are several positive aspects of attending MTCHS. The small class size make learning easy and the teachers know your name, strengths and weaknesses. A few things I'd like to see improved are the social experiences, maybe even a class teaching social skills. Many of the students are introverts at the school because of the specific curriculum structure, however that does not mean they should not have social skills. They are highly important to get a job in the future no matter what technical skills you possess. I would also like to see more teaching. Several classes are online learning which can be hard for students at this age. A big thing I would like to see is to have new students enter at different grades, currently only Freshmen are allowed and there are no new friends to meet each year.
A great school with limitless opportunities for those who are willing to work for it, many different pathways with amazing teachers who care about the students.
