As a parent, this school has been a disappointment. The first year (2018) the school had a principal that had been in place long enough to establish a structure and show some effective leadership. After the principal left, a new one with little skill or tact took over for one year only to be replaced by yet another principal. Given the change and the negative impact this has had, we will be moving our student to another school
This school is being great for my son and daughter so far , and I have my other daughter who’s going to be part this great place. The only thing I’m a bit disappointed is on sports, I can’t believe my daughter never make it to play for girls soccer team, knowing she has a lot talent but I guess since she doesn’t play for any local club she’s been excluded EVERY SINGLE TIME THEY HAD TRYOUTS. Seems to me like the couches (have they’re favorites?)
My child will be graduating this year and has had a great experience. The school offers many AP and Honors classes, great sports, and great supports like the AVID program.
Mission Hills is an amazing school. I graduated last year with a bunch of art awards. The person who wrote about the ceramics teacher is far from being right. I had him and those who usually say they don't like a teacher are the ones that don't pay attention and don't like being told they've done something wrong. Thanks to that teacher I had a piece entered into an art show and accepted to be temporarily displayed in the San Diego art Museum. I graduated with the VAPA Senior Award. I've been in almost every art class, and yes MHHS is predominantly a sports school, the arts programs are amazing. The dance teacher became like a second mom, and so did the graphic design teacher. I would recommend this school to anyone. Now about the "jocks" and "rich white kids", jocks will exist at ANY school your child goes to. Any student at MHHS will tell you that there are more minorities than whites, and the 'rich' title is only said because of our new school. Sounds silly, but that's what MHHS is know as- the rich white kid school. No, it's just new. So if you're looking for a great school in San Marcos and can't decide between MHHS or SMHS, I recommend your child become a MHHS Grizzly.
