Very nice students and teachers! I learned a lot from the teachers and met many of my good friends there. I love how diversity the school is even though it's public school. Many students commute from different towns, come to Malden and attend Malden High School. It has been 2 years, every time I pass by the school, all the memories came back to me.

I would definitely like to see more subject departments being better funded in order to better educate students and provide them with the tools they need to succeed. The teachers that I had were amazing and always put in 110% of an effort to teach students with the resources they had. If provided more funded to departments in STEM, you would definitely see kids better equipped once graduation comes around. However, nonetheless, got to meet a bunch of amazing people from different backgrounds and perspectives which helped a ton in prepping for life after high school
I've been in the Malden Public School district since I was in preschool and I love it here! The teachers here are very friendly and personable and will go above and beyond to make sure your child is comfortable and feels prepared in school. The schools themselves are very culturally diverse and leads to a diverse and accepting learning environment for all children.
