I think my daughter has had some vet good instructors. Maybe one or 2 did not really contribute to her academic growth, but overall, she had some strong academic instructions. The band at Minor is awesome and every time we heard them perform, they were great! Really enjoyed going to the all county choir Christmas festival every year. My experience has been good
All four of my years at Minor were overall great, even though the principle that we received my junior year didn't really do anything good for the school everything went down hall. overall the sports academics and club are great I would recommend anybody go to Minor if they are interested in being in the band or cheerleader because those programs are huge at Minor and very successful.
There are many resources available. There are many computers, laptops, nooks, and other devices that are available. The guidance counselors are horriable! They're never there when you need them and you can never get in touch with them.
