    Minatare is a school that accepts all students and works to help them improve themselves. Over the years we have helped students achieve more then many ever dreamed of. Graduates have gone on to be doctors dentists business owners and military officers Sadly like most schools we have also had students drop out and graduates who end up on wellfare or in prison. We are a school that gives every student multiple opportunities to straighten out their lifes and get a track to success. Most of the teachers care about every student and are willing to put in extra time to help them as individuals. As a teacher at Minatare I know the name of every student in grades 7-12. Kids who would never have a chance of participating at larger schools are part of our team.

    This school is the worst ever teachers act just like students meaning they are in the drama too. i wouldnt send my kid there.

    This school is a great place for students to get on track. We have accepted many students through the choice law that have had trouble in other schools. Many of them do well in Minatare because of the caring staff low student to teacher ratios and opportunities to be involved in the school. This school is a great place with a strong sense of community and belonging.
