I enjoy going to Mineral County High School. I’ve attended this school for 4 years now and I have learned a good amount of things I will take on with me to my future. I have made great memories here with my teachers and my friends. This school has plenty of spirit and being a cheerleader myself, I have definitely felt proud to be a student here and leave my legacy behind. Things that I would like to see change for the underclass men is fixing up lockers, maybe repainting a few things like the bathroom, and any little detail that can be made to really put the school together.

This is absolutely the most awesome school. My daughter just graduated from there. Actually this is my home town & I am very proud of this school. My kids went to elementary & junior high, unfortunately we had to move & only one graduated from there. This town stands behind their kids in sports, I have watched the whole town line the main street & send them kids off with such pride. Both the girls & boys basketball teams took state this year. #GOSERPENTS
Mineral Country is unlike any other High Schools in the nation. This school is so unique and family orientated. I started attending this school my Freshman year of High School and I loved it! I made the varsity cheerleading team and cheered all the way to state! Many people say that just because this school is in the middle of nowhere, and is very small, that you won't make it, or learn anything from going, but they're so wrong. MCHS is a great school and they do the absolute best they can with their funds and making the school a place you would love to say you graduated from. The teachers are like family and will help you with whatever you need if you apply yourself. You feel comfortable with waking up and knowing that MCHS is the school you go too and if I could choose to go here all over again, I would say YES, YES, YES.
