Moscow High School Reviews

Tests, essays, gossip, drama; the essence of high school! Moscow High School is a special one, to say the least. While the staff is decent, our facilities and organizations are subpar. We do not have air conditioning. BUT, we do have iPads for the Physical Education classes. That is obviously a necessity.
Our school recently condoned participating in a nationwide walkout against gun violence in schools. Wonderful, I know!
There is a parking lot in which many students go before, during, and after school to smoke substances such as, but not limited to, cigarettes and marijuana. It is widely known as "The Pot Lot". We have a week called Arts Fest; it's a week-long talent show. Everyone is incredibly supportive of those performing. We also have Lipdub. It unites us all as a whole. If you'd like something to do next time you're stuck in traffic, look up "MHS Lip Dub 2016". I think you will be pleased. I hope this was helpful! MHS could be better but could be loads worse.

Moscow High School has been a great experience. With a load of diverse clubs, organizations, and activities to be involved in, it provides for students the chance to get out into the community and be involved. The teachers are caring, supportive, and amiable while the school provides classes that appeal to all students. Although the food and facilities could require some updating, Moscow High School provides a well-rounded education that prepares students for college life and the world beyond.
I moved to Moscow and started in a new high school just before my junior year. I struggled a little bit but I think this was more due to my own personal issues with moving to a new school so close to graduation and having to start over. But looking back I can honestly say that Mooresville high school could've been such a great experience. The teacher to student ratio was more than accommodating, campus was beautiful, and many of the teachers truly had a unique connection with their students. I now have a little brother and sister that have both graduated from Moscow High School and although each of our experiences have been vastly different just as we are, I can say that we all have a profound love and appreciation for our time at MHS!
