    "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."

    "This school is ok. It has great sports and ok academics. It is definitely not run by rich white kids like the last reviewer wrote. My child came from Orange County and Mission Hills has mostly minorities not rich white kids. The curriculum is standard and my child has a lot of free time on his hands. He rarely has homework and is in all honors classes. Not a great school but it could be worse."

    "My school is run by jocks and rich white kids. The ceramics teacher ridicules students, calls them out, mocks them, and is all in all, bad at his job as a teacher. Not only is he narcissistic but his constant talking disrupts the learning environment. In his advanced class he talks to other students about how poorly the beginning students do and how hard it is for him. He's not the only teacher on campus like this, honestly, I'd say about 8 out of 10 need to be fired and replaced with more professional teachers who are genuinely good at their jobs."

    "I am very proud that my two girls are attending MHHS. This is their first year here (a sophomore and a senior) and they are doing very well both accademically and socially. I have found the staff to be both proactive and responsive to the needs of the students and their families. I am confident that the girls will each leave MHHS at graduation with all of the preparation for life that one can expect from a public high school."

    "I have had nothing good from my encounters with MHHS. Brad Lichtman has never once repsonded to my many emails regarding my childs needs as they arose through out the past 3 years. . He has his staff (poor souls) try and handle. He could at least reply to me that my issues are going to be addressed. It is email after email-I have to do all the follow up. I feel my childs education has suffered as a result of this schools failure to communicate and take action when it WAS NEEDED. If your child is a self starter and academically sound , you are fine. If your child is struggling-good luck. I find most of the staff harried and stressed. My second child is going to a private school , will be worth every penny."
