As I am finishing up my high school journey, I look back and see how much our school has improved the past four years and drastically changed. Coming into the high school as a freshman everything was different and seemed out of place, but as the years went by, things felt more at home and welcoming once you stepped into the halls of MCHS.
When you go to school at MCHS, you make friendships with a variety of different people. Your classmates can become your best friends, teachers support you and encourage you with whatever you want to do, and counselors push you past your normal limits and make sure you succeed.
Although there are many students who attend MCHS, you end up knowing or at least knowing of almost everyone. Classes are filled with students from different grades and communication between the age groups helps drastically with feeling more welcome and secure. I am proud of being able to attend a school that has so much communication with one another.
Educators at MCHS are also skilled in listening and understanding in ideas and thoughts of students. Our teachers and administrators really show the importance of good communication with students as well. Teachers in our school communicate to learn our names, address us with our name, and they also communicate with us so they learn our dreams, wishes and hopes for our high school journey.
Having adequate communication with teachers, peers and adults around the building makes you feel more at home throughout the years and it makes you look back on your high school moments and be thankful that you got to experience life here at MCHS.
