What I liked about Mission High School is the tradition and how every student gets involved in clubs and sports. The way the teachers are excited to teach us, students, and the activities they make up so it won’t be boring is phenomenal. If there was something I would change is just to allow students to wear shorts, but other than that I’m thankful and glad I will be graduating as an Mission High School Eagle!

Mission High School has many different ethnicity! The students are amazing, teachers are awesome, and the administrators are outstanding! The janitors and security guards are very helpful and kind. Football is also a very big part here, every Friday night we are anxious to watch our boys play and watch them win!
Mission High school was a good experience overall with a great culture and some overall great amenities like the new cafeteria and the great sport events along with the new stadium. But did follow a few flaws, It does offer many opportunities for some students to shine although it seems like many different programs are either overlooked or not the focus of the school as it should really be. This I think can be shown with the differences with the medical and the engineering programs, the medical from what i can hear and see is a very good program with lots of different options to go into. While the Engineering from my personal experiences seems not as much as a priority and this can be said with many other things. Overall it was a good time to be there with many good things to add to it if the school does fit your own style.
