My favorite thing about Minor High School is the staff. Every teacher has their own style and each one wants its students to succeed. They are on task and create a lively environment. The administrators are great at their job. They enforce the rules, make sure everyone is safe, and make sure that the teachers, as well the students, are on task. The lunch ladies are just a delight. They serve the food in a timely manner and are kind to all.

Minor High School is a great school. Everything from athletics to academics exceeds expectations. We have great opportunities to succeed in life, such as career fairs and internships. The principal works hard to get all of the trouble makers out. The only downside is the lunch but that is not the school's fault.
I love minor high school! The administration is always in control and not too overbearing. The students always have respect for visitors and school Spirit. The only thing I would change is the condition of the building.
