    Overall Experience: My overall experience was okay. My grades were decent, and I had a decent amount of friends. I love the school spirit that the administration shows. They show respect to every student that walks through the door, and try their best to maintain a safe learning environment. Governor Mifflin has many different pep rallies throughout the school year, whether its boosting the district's school spirit, or raising money to help a family in need. Something unique about the school is that everybody works together as a family, especially in times of need. For example, my gym teacher was diagnosed with cancer during my senior year. The high school put together a lip synch video to "Roar" by Katy Perry in order to support her and boost her up. This helped her to maintain confidence and positivity during her rough patch.

    Overall Experience: High school at Governor Mifflin has been a joy! we do fun things throughout the year like field trips and last year we did a lip dub to help raise money for a teacher with cancer. Governor Mifflin also challenges you to do your best with a variety of choices of classes.

    Overall Experience: I believe that teachers, no matter what school, have the ability to positively impact students. A select few teachers at this school did that for me. Also, I was involved in extra curricular activities which I believe helped me make friends and lifelong connections.

    Overall Experience: i had a pretty good experience at mifflin but each year it has noticeably gotten worse due to various things.this year the associate principal is extremely strict and its for no reason its mainly about the dress code which in prior years hasn't been a problem. students from the last school he was at say that all the stuff he put in place about dress code have been removed as soon as he left.
