My experience in Munster High School is great. I met friends for a lifetime and I receive a stellar education. I love the teachers and staff of Munster High School. The teachers care about their students and prepare their students well for college. The classes are rigorous yet exciting. Some things that need change is the building itself, I believe. Throughout the building, there are numerous leaks, and the carpet needs a replacement. My school is aware of this, and many renovations have taken place, but more need to be done. Overall, Munster High School, a top-rated high school in the US, delivers an unforgettable experience for students!

Munster High School has allowed me to succeed in all facets of life. The experience at Munster High School has been great to say the least. The teachers are all very receptive to students' questions and the resources available to the students and teachers are top-notch. Each classroom has a projector and classes are done mostly online. Each student is provided a Dell Labtop that have tons of different applications installed on them. The sports team allows students the best opportunity to advance to the next level, and prepares students with valuable leadership skills, such as time-management and initiative. Munster High School knows how to prepare its student for the road ahead.
High school at Munster was great! It provided me with ample opportunity. There were loads of clubs, classes, and sports to keep me involved. Also, many of the teachers cared about the overall success of their students. I did very well in my years at Munster High School, and I believe it is due to the teachers and clubs I was involved in. If there was one thing I would like to see different at Munster, them encouraging students to get jobs and volunteer more, since these are some of the things colleges look for in their prospective students. Also, maybe they could announce places in the area that are hiring or looking for volunteers.
