Overall Mona Shores High School is very good. The strong suit is definitely academics and athletics. However they focus too heavily on athletics, and not nearly as much on the performing arts, despite the choir having the Singing Christmas Tree every year. Some of the teachers are blatantly racist and sexist, yet the district doesn't seem to care. Students who are racist and get reported to the administration doesn't do anything, these students get what is basically a slap on the wrist and sometimes a one day suspension. Other than that the school is very good. Most of the teachers are amazing and are so helpful and kind!

I have been attending Mona Shores High School since freshman year (2016), as all experiences with high schools it has had its ups and downs. Despite the rough patches just the other day I was hit with the reality that I have only 4 months of High School left, and I realized that I'm going to miss it. Mona shores provided this big school family spirit, whether it be going to view America's biggest singing Christmas tree presented by the choir and orchestra or a football game by our state champs at the beginning of the year. The staff and teachers interact with the students and the way they learn to help ensure all concepts are understood. My experience here at Mona Shores leads me to believe that anyone who attends will enjoy their time here. Go Sailors!
My experience with Mona Shores High School was overall a good one. The district has a lot to offer: sports, opportunities in the fine arts, and countless clubs that cover a variety of topics. Moreover, the district values academics and holds students to a high standard of education. There are numerous Advanced Placement (AP) classes offered at the high school, giving students that opportunity to gain college credit before actually going to college. The atmosphere at MSHS is also very upbeat, or energetic. School spirit is certainly abundant. However, I would love to see more things celebrated other than just the top sports, football and basketball. In addition, I think having a system where students can give feedback to faculty would be beneficial. While it is understandable that teachers cannot cater to each individual student, better communication between the two would be mutually favorable.
