I enjoyed my experience at Muskegon High School. Something that made Muskegon High School special is their sports programs. Muskegon's football and basketball team brings lots of pride to the school. Another thing I enjoyed during my experience is being in band. Muskegon has a very involved and dedicated band program. I have been a part of it all four of my years attending Muskegon High School. When it comes to sports and clubs, Muskegon is a great school to attend. They give students lots of opportunities in following their dreams, and taking their hobbies to a college level. I wouldn't trade my experience at Muskegon High School for anything.
I didn’t start my freshman year at Muskegon High School, so I thought it would be scary surrounding myself with a new environment. The things I heard about the area was petty negative. Most outsider downsized the school, the instructors, and the students. When I attended my first day I realized that all the gossip was untrue. I was given a friendly tour around the school. As I walked into class I was greeted by the entire class and the teacher. I felt more welcomed there than I did at any other school I’ve attended. As the year went on I realized that the teacher gave up an incredible amount of time, before and after school, making sure that students were understanding the concept throughout the whole week. The school it’s self hold so much history and lots of different sceneries. Muskegon has a family like environment that anyone no matter who you would enjoy because of its people, pride, and education.
