    Overall Experience: I knew plenty of people during my time at MSHS that were involved in many different things. The football captain might be a member of the choir, and a section leader for marching band could be homecoming queen. The older I got, the more I saw that high school there was what you made it. You could do as much or as little as you pleased, and for the most part people were accepting of your choices.

    Teachers: It's been a couple of years now, but I'll try and remember what I can. The teachers I had were engaging, and always were willing to contribute more than was required. The teachers in the music department especially. Each of them put in more work than I ever thought would be possible in a work to make the experiences meaningful for us students.

    Teachers: The teachers at my school are genuinely educated and want to help students learn. However there are some who do not put in effort and give a lot of 'busy work' to students.

    Health & Safety: The school doesn't try very hard with security, but that's okay because it's a small town with almost no threat.
