Model High School Reviews

I enjoyed Model High School mostly because of the teachers I had. I've had some pretty fantastic English teachers, and they've taught me how to be a good reader and writer. What my school is lacking, however, is a good foreign language program. It's great for Spanish considering that we have two Spanish teachers, but the language isn't my favorite. It would be great if we had other options such as French, German, and Russian because knowing a second language is very important in American society due to the fact that the United States is a very diverse country. Rather than only expecting immigrants and those of different ethnic backgrounds to learn to speak English, we should also make an effort to speak their language as well. Overall, I've had a great experience with Model High School.

Model High School cares about your education, and makes sure you always have the help you need. I’ve made so many amazing relationships and memories there. I am positive Model set me up for a successful future and college career. I would not have wanted to attend any other school!
Model's close-knit family environment are comfortable and yet leave something to be desired. There are many activities to take part in, including an equestrian team and debate team, but it feels as though if you aren't the best of the best or you know someone who knows someone, you aren't a part of any cliques and are left out.
This being said, the academics are superb, regardless of the teachers. There's an abundance of resources for college readiness, scholarships, and other academic needs and there's no shortage of help with administration.
