I have gone to Mishawaka High School for the last four years and have enjoyed almost every moment. I have been in classes of all levels (regular classes, honors and advanced level classes). I have also participated in multiple sports and activities such as National Honor Society. One of the best things about Mishawaka High School is the ability to be a multi-sport athlete. I also like all of the clubs, work study and co-op opportunities they provide. One thing that I would like to see changed at Mishawaka High School is an updating of some of the out of date things in the school. This is something that School City of Mishawaka is already starting to work on and future Mishawaka students will appreciate!

I enjoyed my time at Mishawaka High School. The teachers were very supportive of me and helped me all the time. This school year, 2019-2020, we began the use of chrome books. This made learning very easy and didn't have us carrying textbook all the time. The teachers and administration are very helpful and there are plenty of ways to get involved. There is also an Early College Program that allows you to gain college credit during High School. I am graduating with over 40 college credits and being able to transfer them to my college.
Mishawaka High School's staff and administration stepped up big when it mattered throughout the Coronavirus quarantine. They were actively answering emails while creating lessons and assignments that were easy to follow, replicate, or complete from home. The overall experience at Mishawaka High School is OK.
