Monache High School is a very great school. Not only in academics but also in involvement. I have been an Avid student in Monache since my freshman year and I am now a senior. Avid has been preparing me for college in the best way with the support of my counselors and classmates. Monache provides many clubs that keeps us involved. It has many community service opportunities and great references for college. Its campus is always in the best looking way. Every year the California Scholarship Foundation club, in which I’m in, does a campus beautification to maintain our campus clean. My experience in Monache High School has been great.
I was super excited to come to MHS my freshman year, but my enthusiasm decreased as my HS journey passed by. Monache High School needs to get their act together because the teachers here don't really teach well. Look at their state scores, they are pretty low and that can contribute to how the teacher's teach. As for school culture, it's not good. Students don't have school spirit because there are mean students who make fun of them whenever its Spirit Friday. I also wish there were more resources that helps students with college and academics because I have known students who don't know what to do when the time comes. Overall, my time was ok, I just wish they would modernize the school and consider who they hire and how they are enhancing the quality of culture, grades, and students.
