    "I moved to Mattoon, IL & started attending Mattoon High School my junior year of high school. I enjoyed the classes & the teachers, most of which were very knowledgeable about their subjects, but there was something that I was disappointed about. The issue I had was that the counselor who enrolled me did not take the time to find out my interests or what I was intending to go to college for, which was healthcare. I didn't know that she needed this info as this was my first time moving to a new school and I was anxious & overwhelmed. She did not tell me about the different programs at the school offered and I found out after the fact that there was a work-study program where I could have graduated high school and received my CNA certification at the same time. By the time I found out it was too late to enroll. I didn't get involved in many of the clubs but I loved the graphic design classes. I did extracurricular work for that program and also the biology & chemistry classes."

    "Mattoon High School has a large and well-funded athletics department, but it falls behind in the field of academics. Many sports are offered, but few extracurriculars are present. State funded programs are decent, but student organizations fall apart quickly due to little support. Funding goes mainly to new computers that are seldom used- despite the fact that our textbooks are falling apart and some ceilings have had leaks for years. The teachers are very friendly and most of them know much about what they teach. This school feels safe and bullying is seldom witnessed. However, many students are insecure about their chances of getting into a college. This is due mainly to poverty in the area, though it can be also attributed to what many students consider a poor education as compared to other schools. Overall, this high school is decent and does not present any major problems, but most students and many teachers feel that the school could be doing better."

    "Mattoon High School likes to focus on sports rather than education. There are many great teachers, but the school wastes all of it's money on unnecessary items instead of working toward a better educational setting."

    "The students generally do not get along well; there's often arguments within grades and friendships that are often dealt with in a way that could be better. The teachers are kind and understanding, especially the dual credit teachers. They understand that the material is complicated, but they still except the best from us."
