Title 1 Funding Awarded

We are excited to qualify for Title 1 funding, which will allow our schools to better provide for the students. The funding will be used for much-needed tools and resources such as after school tutoring, science projects (frog and fetal pig dissection), books for the English Department and informational posters in the classrooms. Carol Griggs is the Title 1 Coordinator, organizing the effort to purchase needed materials, always with the focus in mind that "graduation is the goal for each student."


Unique to MIHS

After-School Tutoring

Due to funds awarded by Title 1, we are happy to be able to offer students after-school tutoring sessions in any of their subjects. Three teachers are available every afternoon Monday–Thursday from 3p to 5p to assist students.

Tutoring is open to all students and free of charge. Call Carol Griggs at 278-4163 for more information.


Academic Advisors

Each student has an academic advisor who works with him or her to ensure that the student is doing what is necessary to earn a high school diploma
