Why Parents Love Mandarin High

Mandarin High is known for getting the best out of every student. For students who are academically ambitious, we help them rise even higher. For students who need help catching up, we provide encouragement and support. As for everyone in between, they can count on endless resources and opportunities to get the most out of their high school experience.

Mandarin looks like a big school from the outside, but it feels like a small community on the inside. From our medical and culinary academies to our business and technology program to our incredible arts programs, including band, theater, and chorus, every student can find a passion to pursue at Mandarin High School.

Why Students Love Mandarin High

A minute at one of our pep rallies is all it takes to realize how heartfelt our students’ love for Mandarin High School is. It’s not just because of the successes of our 23 sports teams on the court, in the pool, or on the field. Our academic programs hold a great sense of community as well. Our students are learning foreign languages or how to start a company with a sense of pride and camaraderie you just don’t find at most schools. Outside the classroom, there are clubs for almost every interest that can capture the imagination and create bonds among peers. Students here love the freedom they have to chart their own course and receive support from teachers, administration, and staff every step of the way.

What Your Children Will Learn

Since we first opened our doors, we’ve been known for exceptional academics. Our commitment to high-quality education has never wavered. Advanced students should consider our heralded AICE program, which works in conjunction with the University of Cambridge in England. Along with the fundamentals in core subjects, there are countless classes that appeal to a wide variety of interests, from technology to the arts and more. Students can earn college credits and build a résumé that will help them after graduation. Whether the next step beyond high school will be college, a career, or military service, Mandarin students consistently go on to do great things because of the training and mentorship we’re able to provide.

Why We're Unique

Being a somewhat larger school means more opportunity, more support, and as a result, more success for students. We have a proven track record of helping students develop academically, socially, and emotionally, and if they desire, athletically and artistically. Also, while our students set high goals and push for excellence, we never forget that they’re still kids. We work hard to create a welcoming atmosphere that is warm and nurturing. Mustang Nation truly is a family. We might all come from different backgrounds, but we come together to learn, laugh, and give our best effort every day.
