Michigan City High School Reviews
Our daughter graduated in 2018 - she received an excellent education at MCHS and is well prepared for college! So many opportunities in academics, athletics, clubs, arts, etc. She also earned close to 50 dual and AP credits thanks to a solid and challenging honors program. Outstanding teachers and staff. Also MCHS is very diverse - a great asset.
I moved to Michigan City the night before my freshman orientation. I didn't know anybody and I didn't know anything about the area, though I had heard some bad things about MCHS. However, coming to this high school has to be one of the best things that's ever happened to me. My life took a turn for the best, I had excellent teachers and friends, I was very involved after school, and was given many opportunities to earn college credit and save money once I start university in the fall. There is so much support for lower income families, and also lots of health support in the building with the open door adolescent health center, which is probably one of the best things they have to offer. I found my passion with Japanese here at MCHS, and I encourage everyone to disregard any negatives they've heard about the school and see how wonderful it is for yourself.
I loved everything about my time at Michigan City High School. The teachers are top notch, experienced, and inclusive of all students. The academic opportunities provided me with a wealth of knowledge and college credits that prepared me for the current stage of life I'm in. There were many great clubs and organizations to be involved in and find a niche in. Our counselors and administrators guided the whole school community to success each day and kept us all on a path to greatness. Even a year after graduating, I can still visit and be welcomed with open arms as I return to see my past mentors and now friends.
