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.

My first year at Minor High School was very socially challenging. On the other hand, academically, I did very well. All of my teachers where very helpful and they kept me on the right track. Teachers here encourage everyone to take advantage of the different courses my school has. The only think I wish my school had was diversity. It is always good to step out of our comfort zone and work with different people from different backgrounds.
‪ My high school experience, there are many things that come to mind. Some of them are: good memories, bad memories, mistakes, lessons, happiness, heartbreak, misfortune, joy, drama, and most importantly, fun. High School to me seemed like it past by really fast, almost too fast sometimes. I learned many valuable life lessons as I learned the value of hard work, dedication, and also how to tell your real friends from the others. It was tough but overall a great experience that i will soon miss. ‬ I would like to see change in the way rules set up but everything is mostly ok since I'm a senior I'm not bothered by much . 😊
