Mishawaka High School Reviews
Excellent!!- School is what "the student and their family" make of it.
My three sons have gone through Mishawaka High. One is graduating now. All three have had excellent opportunities to learn and achieve. I said opportunities. This means "it is there for the taking". They have to want to learn and have received support from us, their parents. If there were problems, we communicated with the school and they were resolved. There are many levels and types of course work.
This school is failing to prepare students for life outside of high school.
Although the child in my home has good grades over all,I am very,very concerned for the future of these students. I have never seen a lack of preparing kids for a future outside of high school. My stepdaughter still does not have the proper instructions for writing and researching a paper. She seems to never have homework. She says that the majority of time spent in class is doing the homework and then the students grading it. I thought the extended class time and the rotating schedule of classes was to give the teachers time to teach and I am not seeing this. I feel like too much time is devoted to the ISTEP rather then teaching the kids what they really need. They push college to much yet they aren't giving the students the education they need to get into college. I am frustrated and angry that nothing is being done to change this.
It can be good and it can be bad both, out of my 3 children 2 have had nothing but issues, with poor teacher riding it out to retirement and not really caring and 1 that has really done well, but I have to say the one that has done well is in advanced classes. I think that has a lot to do with it. The administrative staff overall is very non caring. They rate a C with my family.
