My parents do not really get involved in school events because they work a lot and because their first language isn't english, so it is difficult for them, but they do support me as a student. They do attend my choir concerts and help promote other events at school. Even though my parents are not super involved in school activities, I have seen other parents do so. Either one that parents choose to do it is still a support for us. At one of our assemblies we talked about three different types of mustangs: Those who make things happen, those who witness the happening, and those who encourage the happening. Every single person at my school falls into one of these categories; there is no one left out. We all support each other, teachers and students. I wouldn't exactly say that we are one big family, but we definitely are a very supportive community. I wouldn't trade my four years at MHS for anything else. It's been an adventure.

Most teachers that I've had been great. They try to make sure the majority of the students understand the material and spend a little more time with those who don't and they make it a goal to have a friendship with as many students as they can. They make learning fun and exciting even if the subject is not an enjoyable one for everybody. However, there have been some teachers that do not really try. They just get on with the lesson of the day and if the students understand, great, but if they don't, too bad. Or the methods they use to try to help the students do not seem to work, but they insist on using that method. Overall though, I am grateful to my teachers for doing whatever is in their power to help students understand and enjoy each class.
I do not know much about our after-school activities, but the one I am familiar with is the After School Study Hall. It is just a CAFE program held in the library. Teachers stay after school and students are able to get the help they need. I never really stayed after school unless it was necessary.

There are also some teachers that do not stay after school with the CAFE program, but they definitely do make themselves available to students after school.
