Minarets High School is a place of growth and inspiration. I moved to this school halfway through my sophomore year and could not have been more impressed. The environment is so loving and encouraging. The staff is absolutely amazing. They are supportive and helpful. This school honestly seems like a dream. I transferred from my other school because of bad situations such as bullying and just a bad school situation in general. When I got to Minarets, I instantly felt accepted and cared for. I have learned so much not only about math, english, or history, but about life and how to be a better person. I could not be more grateful for this school!

This school gives many teens opportunities to learn good subjects such as media, dance, art, and music, that many regular don't have. this school has taught me things that many other schools don't teach such as presentations and being a good person. Im grateful that im attending this school, I hope that many other kids that attend this school with feel the same way I do.
Small high school with small class sizes. Lots of rigor and relationship building. Project based, digital high school. Professional atmosphere.
