DID YOU KNOW?
That MCHS is the only high school in Canada that is offering a university level English to eligible Grade 12 students, allowing our students to earn regular university credits while still in high school.
MCHS' positive behaviour supports program has a HOWLS lunch every month for students who have earned a HOWLS ticket. The last HOWLS lunch saw 202 students receive lunch! HOWLS tickets are given to students who have shown Honour - Ownership - Welcoming- Leadership- Safety at MCHS.
MCHS offers an Urban Agriculture course where students experience the farm to table lifestyle first-hand. This course offers students a hands on approach to learning. They participate in butchery, canning, pickling, growing and go on numerous field trips.
MCHS is the place to be!
Excellent Report Card for MCHS! (click on image)
Twice a year Alberta Education releases a 'report card' on each school in the province, using results from student, parent and teacher surveys, along with hard data from students on Provincial Achievement Tests, Diploma Exams and other measures related to Grade 12 students. This is the Accountability Pillar for each school and each school district in the province.
The results are the strongest that they have been for MCHS in the 10 years that Alberta Education has been reporting on schools in this manner. The stellar report for MCHS is due to the work that students, parents and faculty have been part of for the past year and beyond. Our students and communities are the beneficiaries of this and this report again highlights the fact that MCHS is one of the top high schools in Alberta.
Access to the full report (196 pages) is available on our school website and on the Alberta Education website.
Thank you for your continued support of your children and the students of MCHS.
