I'm a current Senior at Morgantown High School, and I wouldn't say I have loved my actual high school experience, but MHS is a great school. We have a lot of dedicated, helpful, and kind faculty members that go out of their way to reach out to students. We were awarded the title of number 1 high school in the state of West Virginia this past school year! We have a diverse group of students, clubs, and extracurricular activities. MHS is also a great school to go to if one wants a great education, as there are dozens of AP classes and, because we're in close proximity to WVU, students can do early release classes at the high school. On the contrary, behavioral problems run rampant it often appears that the arts and theatre departments are neglected.
Review Morgantown High School
The idea of entering a very large high school after graduating from a small Catholic elementary school was frightening! I have to tell you it went much better than I ever expected! After meeting the counselors, administration, faculty and staff at “MHS” I felt much more comfortable. MHS has a caring faculty and staff, wonderful administration, academic courses that more than prepare you for the next level, guidance counselors who care, activities for everyone no matter your interest. It provides all of this while still making you, as an individual, feel very welcome. It doesn't feel as big as it looks anymore! I could not have asked for a better high school to have spent the last 4 years of my life at. I love the times I have had here and am proud to say that I will always be a Mohigan!
I love that Morgantown High school is extremely inclusive. There are people of all races, genders, religions, and ethnic backgrounds. MHS is a very family oriented high school and everyone feels welcomed and loved. The atmosphere of pride and leadership is absolutely wonderful!
