I moved to Monterey high school my sophomore year. There isn't a lot of negatives or a lot of positives. The teachers aren't bad but they could be better. One positive though, is that I feel like this school focuses on academics more than other activities such as sports or clubs. I think that is important because, when you look at the bigger picture, that's all that really matters. Overall, I think that Monterey High School is an average school.

I loved being a Monterey Wildcat. It is a school where everyone knows one another. We are a small school, and there are limitations on what a student can learn. However, the student knows that the teachers at Monterey are very dependable and that if the student ever has any issues they can count on their teachers and counselor for help. I attended all four years of my high school experience at this school. As a freshman, I was quite shy, and as I joined more clubs in the school, I came more out of my shell. The teachers in charge of the club made sure each individual could have the opportunity to be involved. All the clubs the school offers help the students become closer to one another. Overall, I enjoyed my time at that high school. It was some of the best years of my life.
I absolutely loved my high school! the overall experience was better than many schools in my experience. the teachers, look of the school and (most) students was great!
