I attended Montcalm High last year. Overall, it is a decent school. There are some teachers that really seem to care about their students, but are still very professional. Mrs. Hall is one of these amazing teachers. Overall, I noticed that the school had its pics, and not all sports were supported.

I have two children at this school. I have always received a response to my inquiries, but sometimes they do take a while to answer you. Morgan, Buckland and Adams are excellent teachers. I wish we had better athletic teachers, but we are stuck with the ones that are there...forever. Vice Principal
... Read more Currence loves the school and the students and is quite strict with them. Parents are definitely left out of the loop of events at the school. They are given last minute notices about graduation, prom, dances, performances and such. It would be nice for the school to send out a complete agenda along with the schedules each fall. Read less

I think it is very important for all involved with Montcalm High School to realize that they cannot sit back and expect things to happen for them. I graduated from Montcalm a couple years ago, and I had an extracurricular and academic resume that well exceeded the requirements for the top universities

Montcalm High School will prepare your student for life after graduation only if they have prepared themselves for high school. The kindness and close-knit community that MHS offers is one of a kind. I would recommend MHS over any other high school in Mercer County. Read less

I go to Montcalm High School and almost half the school only worries about the sports programs. The school has their picks of who they like and who they don't. Kids get treated better than some. It's ridiculous. We also have the most ignorant rules known to man, the girl's bathroom stall doors are so

Academics are MHS are not priority. Basketball and football however are of the utmost importance there. There are no extracurricular activities offered except the usual basketball, football and cheerleading. Parents are not involved because they are not given the opportunity to be involved. There is

I attended this school and I can tell you first hand that it's not all that great. In my years, I graduated in 1997, we could tell some of the staff that we were leaving early and they wouldn't care. When we were in class the TV was always on MTV channel. It is mostly upsetting because the staff just
