Mississinewa High School Reviews

The department heads are good educators, but there's one teacher in each department that probably could have been better suited for a job other than teaching. The students, the above average ones are kind of full of themselves, and the rest are just rude. The athletics are good, and win a lot of stuff. They've recently implemented metal detectors, but only allow students to walk in one at a time with a few seconds between each, which has started making students late to class, so that sucks.

All of the teachers at this school respect and care for the students. They are all willing to put in just as much as the student will for class work or other activities. Most teaching styles involve the use of technology and lectures however there are other teachers who have more of a hands on approach for their teaching and getting their students to learn on a more personal level. All of the teachers at my high school are incredibly knowledgable and incredibly intelligent, yet they are still always willing to explain and take the time to help students understand the material. Most teachers are respectable and engaging in their teachings that enables the interest in students, giving them help with finding their educational interests.
Teachers show a lot of obvious favoritism, and most are not understanding of personal issues that prevent students from doing work.
