GREAT SCHOOL! I just graduated a couple weeks ago and I can honestly say that it was fun! I was able to finish my associates in science! The college professors don’t care that you’re in high school and treat you like a college student! They are all very knowledgeable in their area and have various opportunities for you to ask questions! That high school teachers are also great! I loved the counselors! They know what they’re doing. However I would of liked more help with finding ways to pay for college. Flexible schedule and you still get to play sports at your base high school! The students are all driven and really helped me decide what I want to do as well as keep me focused! The campus is a good size!

MCHS offers academically rigorous courses and an opportunity to graduate high school with an Associate Degree. The faculty and staff are dedicated to the success of each student and they make themselves available. Overall, communication avenues and both timing and frequency of communication could be improved, but this is understandable given how small the staff population actually is. Don’t expect to have your hand held. If you have a question, you will have to take the initiative to seek out the answer, and it is not clear where to start. Then be patient. It takes awhile to actually get an answer.
I loved this school because it really prepares high school students for college. There is so much diversity and so many clubs for all people. It's a place where students can be themselves and not worry about fashion and who looks better. Everyone is there to actually focus on school work and go to college. It's a school full of determined people which makes it such a positive and great environment to be in. However, you don't get to experience school dances, homecoming, or prom like a regular high school. That was the only thing I did not like about the school. I felt like I did not have those popular high school experiences at this school.
