My experience at Munster High School was great! There's a phonomonal marching band, lots of sport activities, and fun clubs to join. If I could change anything about that school I would like to have the teachers train more in taking notes and lecturing. They're great but sometimes it's inconsistent on who's great and who's not.

Munster High School is an outstanding place with outstanding students and faculty. Throughout my four years here, nothing has ever left a bad taste in my mouth. The facilities are very nice, specifically the brand new pool, it was great to be able to swim during the school day in gym class in such a nice pool. The variety of after school activities are also endless. I've participated in unique clubs such as American Sign Language club, ping pong club, Gay Straight Alliance, poetry club, and many others. The staff is very friendly and I rarely had a teacher that was unpleasant. I believe Munster High School is the best at preparing students for college and providing them with all the essential tools necessary for success.
Munster High School, in short, is a very good school, both academically and athletically. Most teachers are very knowledgeable and helpful, although there are a few who seem to be just there for the paycheck. Munster High is one of the only schools in Indiana without prior review for the Journalism department, which is a BIG plus. The only real problem I have with Munster High is that it is a good school and I feel as though they are not willing to change anything in hopes that keeping everything the same will result in the same score as previous years.
