Mahwah High School has the best staff that truly cares about their students. All staff members are very involved in student activities whether it is sports games, musicals, art shows, and clubs. I have never felt unsafe on campus or at after school activities. In addition, all of the students at Mahwah High School demonstrate genuine pride for their school. In regards to education, through out my four years at Mahwah High School, I have been continuously challenged and motivated to work to the best of my ability because of my teachers who are extremely encouraging and my classmates who also have motivation to succeed. As I am about to begin my college experience I feel comfortable in knowing Mahwah High School prepared me well.

Mahwah high school has been fantastic. They care about each student and everyone there. They are always trying to improve things. The principal really tries to connect with the students. Great teachers who care about their students. Resources available if you struggle in a subject. Sports are treated seriously.
Overall I've had a good experience. The school is consistently working to improve/update itself, which has been most evident recently with the opening of the new STEAM Building, otherwise known as the Thunderbird Think Tank or T3.
