What I enjoyed about Monache high school is the encouragement that they put upon students to exceed in their classes. I like the fact that students get to be involved with the school's events and how they work it out. The school tries to have many events for the student's enjoyment and to make their 4 years memorable after heading off to college or a university. When it comes to the teacher based on my experience I do believe the teachers care about the students who thrive to succeed. However, even so they still tend to encourage students who don't have the motivation to do the following tasks that they are told to. Monache High School is an overall very good school who care about all their students and the effort they put within each class.

The experience I had when I was in this school is that I was able to meet many students and teachers and all of them always treated me very well. This is because each person I met was very kind, for example, my teachers were very kind to me and always tried to help me as much as they could so that I could better understand what we were doing in class, which I really liked because not only because I spoke another language they tried to give me another attention and in reality they all treated me very well as well as the others.I would not change anything at the Monache school because it seems to me a very good school and also because they always do different activities during some days to entertain the students. Another thing is that the truth in Monache they treat all students equally regardless of where they come from and without speaking their language.
This highschool is about your normal public school but it has this diverse atmosphere that you don't quite notice in the beginning. Whether you are highly involved or not you will find a teacher that will help you, be your friend or mentor, or all in one. I attended all 4 years of high school here despite having other opportunities I do not regret attending here. Despite when attending there being a teenager and complaining later on you realize how useful the knowledge you learned there is. By the time I graduated the high school is being renovated.
