    This school was great before this new principal showed up. She has changed everything that WORKED in the school. Now learning how to do the same thing a different way is effecting the teachers and in turn effecting the students and parents. Love this school but this woman seems to have a problem taking advice.As a first time principal she should be a bit more humble not try to "reinvent the wheel" and pick up where things are already flowing well. I just can't stand all the changes for no explanation. Some people don't know how to handle "power".

    The academic program is just as good as any school in america.Music arts and sports are good way to keep kids of the streets.I enjoyed Minor I played Football and Basketball. But there needs to be a little more diversity in Minor

    This is my upcoming senior year. This is a good school. I say this because they have a balance of academics as well as extracurricular activities. This is the best school in our district.

    Mr. Phillips has truly changed Minor High School. I am a graduate of Minor High School and my daughter graduated in 2003. She not only received a wonderful education at Minor High School but she also gained skills in how to survive and live in the real world. Mr. Phillips was a God send to my daughter. She experienced something her Senior year that no parent would ever want for their child. As usual she handled it with grace and dignity and Mr. Phillips inspired her to use this experience to help others in the future. Mr. Phillips is truly a unique individual. I only wish every principle in the US was like him. It would certainly prevent problems from developing in schools around our nation. God Bless!

    'Minor is an all-around absolute favorite! It's the best school in America. We have the best staff and students. Being at Minor daily changes your whole train of thinking. It's so much diversity and so many things to participate in that you can't go without getting to know at least one person. We have a lot of order and a lot of fun. We get along well with each other. If you are seeking a higher education while still being socially active come to Minor. There is no other school I would rather attend.'
