MHS does not offer advanced placement or IB credit, instead MHS permits students to attend college classes for dual credit. The advantage for students is that they do not have to pay the price for advanced placement tests, worry about whether the school they are going to will accept advanced placement courses. By taking college classes, students are ensured transferability to state and UC schools, do not have to pay the tuition as long as they receive a C or better. The tuition is paid for by the school. Many students leave MHS with at least 15 college credits completed.
