I absolutely love being a Mustang! Our Health and Medical Sciences Academy is unmatched, and there are so many opportunities that come with it. Our Tony Award-winning drama program is amazing and I love being part of that as well. It's a great place, and most students have great relationships with their teachers (most of whom really do care).

My experience at Monticello High School was one that I will remember for a long time as an alumni. Being engaged and involved with the school allowed me to make more meaningful connections with my peers and teachers. Monticello offers many programs for students that require commitment and individuality such as sports, clubs, and the arts. Monticello is looking to be a more inclusive school by adding Esports and Monticello Champions sports for students in the special education program. The one thing that I think Monticello needs to improve on is the resources and support it provides its students concerning mental health. This topic was not openly expressed during my time at Monticello, however, as the conversation has picked up nationwide I hope the school looks to offer students a more supportive and well-round experience relating to their mental health.
Poor school environment and lots of drug involvement. Academics are alright but not particularly challenging or engaging. Some teachers are wonderful, and others are very very poor. The school environment is mildly toxic, though it is a place where most can find someone else to click with. All kinds of sports and activities to participate in all with family well supported programs. Lots of diversity of all different types of people. Kids are not tightly regulated, and I haven't seen much action taken to protect the students. Overall decent school with decent environment and beautiful facility.
