The teachers and staff at Mountain Home High School are phenomenal. Many of them would quite likely give their left kidney to watch you succeed. I've heard a lot of people talk about how small-town schools can often have a negative connotation, but I've really loved being able to build relationships with the teachers and students rather than graduate in a class filled with people I barely know. It's comforting to wave and say hello to staff in the hallway. I've never really felt like MHHS has been lacking in any department other than funds, and even then the staff is able to pull through and still make the best of it.
Mountain home high school had charm but lacked functionality. The teachers there were saints working with what they could but ultimately the schools' location and surroundings created an environment where students had trouble valuing education. I would like to see more funding go towards social workers for troubled youths, as well as an increase in funding for extra-curricular activities such as theater and choir. I would consistently meet students who grew up in troubled, impoverished households with no outlet or support systems in place in order to get the help they needed. Financially, mentally or otherwise. It truly saddens me to see people so talented and passionate feeling so lost and hopeless because of their surroundings.
I have enjoyed my time at Mountain Home High School, and I feel I have learned a lot in my four years. Most of the teachers and staff are understanding and work well with the students. The administration cares for their students and knows them by name. However, a select few teachers are just awful and are the cause for my four star rating. I would also love to see added Dual Credit and Advanced Placement classes, especially in the science departments. Overall this high school is very nice.
