    "Don't listen to the people complaining of mediocrity. Monterey High can be an excellent school if the student reaches out and puts effort into their high school experience. Sure, MHS is lacking in some aspects and I have had a few teachers I would not width to have again, but no school is perfect and it is up to the student to find opportunities like academies (MAOS, ACA, SPARK), AP classes (many are offered!), and clubs. Remember that in a public school your child will have new experiences, find opportunities, and become friends with many different types of people. Please think twice before choosing a private school...Go Dores!"

    "Honestly, for a public school it's pretty decent. Overall, it isn't a school where I wanted my child to go to. Teachers have a lack of personal communication. Which is what I really look for in a school. Communication is key to helping the student understand what the teacher is teaching, and I think Monterey High just doesn't do that. Luckily my child survived, but if I would have turn back time, I would have put her in another school."

    "Wonderful high school!!! Great teachers, great campus with a rich history. There are many programs and challenging classes for students. Administration cares about college prep and helping students succeed. The best high school in the district by far!! Amazing academics and athletics and extra-curricular activities to keep the teenagers busy."

    "My younger son is a Sophmore at Monterey High and let me begin by saying that this school leaves much to be desired! The teachers we have encountered have put forth ZERO EFFORT in regards to school - home communication. The return rate of response on emails is about a 2% at best. When we called the SORRY counseling office, which most times rings off the hook, we were told that all outside emails go to the junk mail. Are you kidding me?? How do they expect to keep in touch with parents...the answer: they don't. The counseling office is just as disappointing where your concern as a parent is tossed to the side and it's excuse after excuse after excuse. Just this week we recieved our son's progress report and it wasn't what we had hoped. Considering none of his teachers had replied to the MANY emails we have sent, we called the counseling department where we were told that we could make an appointment for an after school meeting, but if it's on a Friday they won't show up. WHAT?? It's disheartening to see such a lack of concern on the part of the school staff when you think that they truely are molding the citizens of our future."

    "My daughter did her Junior year at this school, We are a military family, and when we went to pick out her classes,the Councelor did not listen to us. We told her what classes would cross over, and what classes would not. She put our daughter into classes, that did not transfer over into her new school. We told the councelor that this would happen, and it did. When we would make appt for conferences, the councelor was late, if she showed up at all. E mail responces from teachers is slow. Luckily we were able to move and get our daughter out of there. Some..are not that lucky. Bad, Bad, school."
