Monterey High School has the best teachers in this state. Surely wish our school board supported them more. Their tireless efforts for the students who attend this school are endless. Their commitment to make sure all kids are prepared and none left behind should be commended. The current administration for the school and board member representing the school leave a lot to be desired. Hopefully, they will be replaced soon with an administration and board member with more character and common sense than what we have now. It’s incredibly disappointing to have the teachers of this caliber and a leadership lacking in basic morality.

Great school!! Ive had such an amazing learning experience at MHS. All teachers open and willing to do wgats best for students as well as principals. My pre-k - 12 grade school has worked so hard to push me to be my best and given the most encouragement to students and me that we need! I am sad to be leaving and graduating this year but the school has helped me and encouraged me to go and do great things in life!
I have been a student at Monterey High school for 11 years and I have had the best experience as far as education and resources being given to me making sure I’m as ready for college as I can possibly be. I feel as though my teachers through the years have helped me to the best of their ability to teach me and help me learn. Administration at Monterey has always made the students’ saftey top priority.
