Parent: Two years now at SMCHS! We were relocating to the OC. The process of visiting 5 schools was a challenge for our then 8th grader. Nevertheless, SMCHS made top of the list. Students readily accept new friends here. There are lots of opportunities to work together. Parent and family involvement is prevalent.
Classes are varied for diverse learning and divergent thinking. SMCHS orchestra, steel drums, band, guitar, theatre, dance & art need to be applauded. Sports, robotics, ETV, journalism, many clubs and retreats invite learning and growing. The feeling on campus is a positive. Students are smiling and having conversations with each other.
AP/ Honors require lots of work. Room for improvement: to get grades posted in a timely manner. Quicker feedback allows students to know if they grasped information correctly, providing time to discuss unclear concepts with the instructors. Through Covid-19, classes were not missed/work required. SMCHS-a positive learning environment.
