Welcome MCHS Wolverines to the 2021-2022 Year, 

We persevered through one of the hardest times in history. COVID-19, Distance Learning, personal and family loss, setbacks in learning, first-time academic failures all became the norm. Yet, through it all, because of our collective support for one another, MCHS experienced deepened relationships and increased school results.

 

In 2020-2021, progress included

  • 100% Graduation Rate
  • 98.6% A-G Completion 
  • 58% of graduates earning an AA and/or IGETC (highest in our history); some senior scholars earned multiple AA’s (first in our history)
  • 55 College Credits averaged per graduate
  • 3 Dell Scholarship Award recipients; 3 RIMS scholarships, Numerous community scholarships;
  • Scholars funded through scholarships/grants/endowments as high as $75,000 per year 
  • Scholars attending Princeton (a first), Penn State, UC’s, CSU’s, private universities and colleges
  • 98.1% Attendance Rate for all MCHS scholars in 20-21 (during distance learning!)
  • 50% of MCHS scholars earned a 4.00 or higher GPA (weighted)
  • MCHS was destination for learning teams from across the state 
  • Students shared with state influencers ways to support underrepresented populations toward dual enrollment success
  • and eventual college completion (especially for first generation college students)
  • Parents continued as key partners in learning and scholar success.

 

For 2021-2022, we’re excited to:

  • Return to in-person learning (summer school was a blast)
  • Reconnect with everyone (can’t wait to see continuing students and meet our new Wolverines)
  • Restore expanded learning opportunities, especially in the classroom (our teachers/staff are great)
  • Re-engage collaborative conversations, AVID tutorials, WICOR strategies and structured group time where learning increases (Vygotsky)
  • Expand SEL supports and resourcing from the high school, district, and college 
  • Further our Vision, Mission and SLO’s that drive and frame everything we do 
  • Produce scholars who will increase in their College Readiness, Industry Preparedness, SEL Life-Long Learning, and Global Leading
  • Increase our amazing and model College Partnership with SBVC
  • Expand Parent Voice, Participation, Partnership toward fulfilling MCHS Vision, Mission, Goals.

 

Welcome Wolverine Family to the 21-22 Year!  We’re excited to come back together to Make Hope Happen for every scholar!  Carpe Diem!  Let’s Seize the Day!
