    Wonderful! The view alone is stunning and just wait until you see the old amphitheater! The school is clean and attractive but most of all the staff is great! Very personable and easy to communicate with. They work overtime and you can see they care. My son is very happy at the school and I'm excited to see him finish his high school time at MHHS.
