  • This school doesn't do what it says it will. They claim to care about students but they don't. I was held back when I moved here from out of state, the school I left was one of the best in the country, Minor said I didn't have enough credits, they didn't check, because I was over the required credits needed. I just wish someone would do their job and care, this will ruin my future.

  • Minor High School is the best school to register your child in. I am a current student there in my junior year. They are very disciplined about education and safety. I am proud to say that this school sets a good example for many schools to come. Coach and other administrators are doing a wonderful job on discipline and also making kids want to go to school.

  • honestly i really could care less about this school because the guidance office would not let me dropout to get my G.E.D so i could. ship to basic training in june. but today i went to ask her if she knew anywhere i could get my G.E.D at and also said to her that i still wanted walk with my senior class. after i said that she said that i should have went ahead to get my G.E.D . well i was trying to drop out and she told my parents that she would not sign and tell my teachers not to sign it either. so now i have five weeks until i get shipped off to fort benning, georgia and now i wont be able to because i wont have a diploma or my g.e.d so what should i do?
