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.
I believe the school does the best they can with our athletic facilities. Our gym is always cleaned and the floor is always waxed. The football field stays cut and ready for games and the softball/baseball field is nice too. Since it is such a small town our school spirit is very high! The whole town attends games and supports our teams, even if they have to travel to do so! We have a pep club that the student council helps set up to rent a bus that allows to students who are eligible to go on trips with the teams and support them while they are away. There are very great opportunities.
