Momence High School Reviews

Momence high school was a pretty average high school, nothing very special about it. I only spent my Junior and Senior year there before I graduated in 2016. During my time at Momence High School I found it hard to make friends, since it was a very small school and all of the other students knew each other since kindergarten. The course work is also very easy, not at all challenging and the teacher do not prepare you for college. I think Momence High School should push the students to work harder and make the work more challenging, so the students will be prepared for college and will be more likely to succeed in college. They should also invest some of their money into provide better and more nutritional lunches.

My high school has less than 400 students. This has its pros and cons. I enjoy having smaller classes. Students have a better chance of establishing a relationship with their teacher easier when at a small school. All the students know each other and with a smaller school, there aren't many cliques or social statuses. That being said, there aren't as many opportunities in a smaller school. There are few electives and clubs and they don't offer many AP or honors classes. Although at times I wish I would've had the opportunity of attending a larger high school, I am now happy with my school.
My overall favorite experience of attending MHS is being a cheerleader for the high school football team. What makes this school unique is the select few teachers that everyone actually likes also the extra classes that have been offered to us throughout my high school career, like culinary arts one and two, a bunch of different computer classes, parenting, child care and adult living, several art classes, community service, and personal fiance. I'm not sure if I would choose this school again if I could do it all over again because the students that attend this school are immature and make going to school very dreadful. All anyone wants to do is fight and when a student gets threatened or anything the school will not do anything about it!
