Senior: Mountain Heritage is a school that's good in theory, but it's got irking problems that seem to exist for the sole purpose of messing with students. Several of the sinks are broken in the school, and the toilets in the restrooms are more frequently stuffed with paper towels than they are in use. Also, in at least two restrooms, the soap has been stolen.
There is an abnormal amout of focus on the bottom quartile of students at MHHS. The administration would prefer to beef up its graduation rate that to develop students that are actually college ready.
Physics is no longer offered at MHHS at the time of this review, which I consider to be an astounding mistake.
Competition amongst students is also highly discouraged, to such an extent that failing students feel no need to improve. Any academic recognition, as in valedictorian or graduation cords, has been removed.
Aside from its issues, MHHS has some fantastic teachers. They are the saving grace of this school.
