The quality of some of the teachers here goes above and beyond of what is expected of them. One teacher brought my failing grade to an A by consistently helping me early in the mornings before school started. Another teacher who taught an AP science class acknowledged there was cheating in the classroom and somehow managed to ignore it. Many kids didnt earn their "real" grade while the students who refused to cheat received B's and even C's. He didnt seem to care about the academic success of his students, nor did he ever pursue giving extra help to struggling students.
There is such a variety of extracurricular activities available to all students. It is truly amazing what all is available. We have all kinds of sports. Tons of clubs and organizations such as HOSA, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Key Club, National Honor Society, German, Spanish and French Clubs, Student Council, Newspaper, Yearbook and much more. Since there is such great teacher involvement, it makes the organizations fun and many students participate.
If I could choose to go to high school again I would choose Mountain Home High Career Academies. The staff is wonderful. I am very athletic and enjoy all sports and the school has a wonderful sports program with lots of support from the community. They have very good academic awards ceremonies that have a ton of support as well. This school is so unique as we have many clubs and organizations to get involved with, lots of supports from teachers, parents, community, administrators and coaches and great student-teacher interaction.
