Mountain Home High School was nothing but average. There was never anything that made it stand out as exceptional. Teachers very rarely made you feel welcomed and included. By the end of your junior you had very few classes in your interest areas left to choose from because there was so little. Spending less money on smart boards and more on teachers and subject areas would greatly increase the experience. The most helpful thing provided for us students was "Tiger Time". Tiger time was an hour long period once a week provided to go to which ever class you needed. This allowed us to make up tests, work on homework, and receive extra help without interrupting regular class time.

As a MHHS senior, I have experienced all four years of schooling at Mountain Home. There were many things I appreciated along with things I did not very much enjoy. What I really like about Mountain Home High School is that there are three different academies separated by teaching style. Those are CAB (Communications and business), ACME (agriculture), and HHS (Health and Human Services). These different learning styles not only helped students learn more efficiently, but decreased the drama and social status needs. What I did not very much like about MHHS is that only Juniors and Seniors are only allowed to go to Prom. Prom should be allowed for all of high school.
I generally don't ask much more of a school than a good education, and that's what I got from Mountain Home Sr. High School. The majority of the teachers are very good at what they do, and I rarely had any problems academically. The only thing I might change is how teachers are evaluated. In college, you can take a survey of your teacher at the end of the semester. I had issues with a couple math teachers in Mountain Home, so I wish they were evauated better.
