On Food: Most of the time the cafeteria manages to burn the cheese on the pizza, but when they don't the pizzas are delicious! There are also a wide variety of food and drinks and snacks that are offered. There are usually different specials several times a week so you don't need to eat pasta everyday.

On Administration & Policies: The principal is very involved at MIHS. She is very active and you will laways see her walking around or into to classrooms or in the commons at least once a day. There is a zero tolerance policy towards bullying and we have counselors available for any sort of problem. Dress code is pretty lax, everyone understands how to dress and any profanity, reference to drugs, guns, violence is prohibited.

On Overall Experience: I am heavily involved in the band program and love it. I have been in band for all 4 years of high school and I am glad I am still in it. Band has helped me become who I am today. You meet all sorts of different people and get to know them and you all just become one big family, one big support system.

On Teachers: Every teacher's teaching style is different, so you have to adjust to each one. As soon as you have adjusted, you generally know what the teacher looks for when they grade.

High School Senior

On Extracurriculars: At least one-third of the entire high school is involved in music. Whether it be band, orchestra, choir, jazz, or steel drum. the programs all have the amazing opportunity to group travel and perform nationally as well as internationally.
