It is a great school, with great teachers. I really like all the opportunities Minooka Community high school has to offer. The drivers ed program was top notch. I felt more than prepared for college because of this high school. While I was a senior, I even took college nursing class. This was a great opportunity for me to explore a potential career with spending thousands of dollars!

If I'm being honest, MCHS wasn't the best school experience for me. MCHS is a predominantly white school, in a predominantly white area so POC weren't treated the best by some students, and even some teachers and faculty. However, despite all this, there were some teachers I had that were the most sweetest and caring individuals, and made the experience of going to that school slightly more bearable. In all honesty, this school wasn't the greatest for my mental health, and it didn't really prepare me for college. I have heard stories of the experiences other POC have had while attending this school. I am grateful that I didn't experience like that. This school has a lot of work to do in order to be a good place and prepare kids for their future.
MCHS is a great school. It gives many educational advantages to its students: Minooka offers a variety of AP classes and dual credit courses, and starting junior year you get access to the Grundy Area Vocational Center. The students are very friendly, and accepting of outside beliefs. The athletics are incredible. They have multiple D1 athletes coming out of their football, lacrosse, cross country, and track programs. Minooka is one of the best schools in the state at preparing students for a wide range of careers, and I highly recommend it.
