School itself was kind of old but safe and a nice school. Administrators were questionable, went through three administrators in four years of high school. Academics were good, not every AP class was offered but the ones that were offered were taught well. Guidance counselors really helped you understand what was required of you to prepare for college in terms of applications and paperwork. I loved it there, things could definitely be improved but it was overall a good experience.

The people are usually nice, and some teachers really care about students and their educations! However, some other teachers and staff seem to just be going through the motions, so to say, and have no real passion for teaching.
I like how caring the teachers are at Mohonasen and how they help and connect with the students. They make the classes fun and enjoyable which really keeps students interest. A change I would like to see, though, is Mohonasen spending their budget on more things that matter to the people of Mohonasen, like air conditioning for when it is hot out for example. Overall, I am pleased with my years at Mohonasen High School.
