Pittsford Mendon High School is a unique educational and social institution. What makes Mendon awesome is that we are Viking STRONG. Our motto represents our values. The “S” stands for spirited. Whether it be sporting events, pep rallies or spirit days, we take pride seriously. Everyone does their best to get involved! The “T” means together. We work together to be accepting. We also collaborate on school and extracurricular activities. “R” means respect. We believe that everyone deserves respect because we are all humans. “O” means original. Everyone is encouraged to come up with ideas and try new approaches, but most importantly be themselves! Along with that the “N” stands for nurturing. We nurture classmates and support each other to ensure positive learning experiences. Lastly, “G” means genuine. At Mendon we put our hearts into everything. We persevere to have a genuine attitude. Mendon students are STRONG, and I believe it is a wonderful school.

Great Teachers, super helpful and nice! The school is a small but tight community. Majority of students are overachievers and although it is competitive, students tend to help each other out frequently.
I’d say overall it’s a great school in terms of academics, however, there are some grievances which I and many others feel need to be addressed. Mendon needs to have a more stable and efficient teacher-hiring program, because the amount of times teachers have needed a substitute and there’s next to no one to fill in, is too many times to count, putting unnecessary stress on the teachers AND the students. In addition, another main problem many feel should be addressed is how there isn’t a non-binary bathroom in the school, which hurts the students of the LGBTQ community incredibly, having to go into the bathroom of the sex they were given at birth, instead of who they truly are. Mentally, this can be debilitating due to the already prejudice society we live in, so introducing a gender-neutral bathroom would allow the many students who need it to feel like they’re actually cared about, and not that they’re worth less than a regular person.
