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 One thing that I would like to see changed at Mishawaka High School is an updating of some of the out of date things in the school.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!

Mishawaka was a small school, which meant that I got a lot of opportunities that I probably wouldn't have gotten at a larger school. My guidance counselor was awesome (shout out to Ms. Buda, you saved my life!) and I loved most of my teachers. The diversity of staff, however, leaves something to be desired. Every single one of my teachers was white. I believe that this is something that the School City of Mishawaka should work on.
Mishawaka High School has a poor general reputation, but it's honestly pretty great if you surround yourself with the right people and take honors/AP/IUACP classes, because you won't run into any "bad" kids. Also, the teachers of these classes are generally more invested in their students, which is great. Although Mishawaka academic teams and clubs are not super popular, it is very easy to become involved and be on a varsity team as a freshman. Likewise, while it is usually pretty difficult to join NHS or get a college internship at most high schools, it is relatively easy here. Mishawaka students have a lot of opportunities to advance academically here!
