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.

Malden Public Schools have been a big part of my education and life as an individual. They paved the path for my future and have helped shape me to be the student I am today. Malden Public Schools have an uplifting environment which makes it slightly easy to adjust. The schools are very diverse which leads to be around surrounded by so many different people. Being exposed to this teaches you life skills, cultures and making friends. The staff and teachers of Malden Public Schools were an awesome support group. They're like second parents: tough but with good intentions. They only want what's best and work to make sure your needs are met making you feel secure and see them for anything. From middle school to high school, the scenery changed a lot but the same elements remained. Whether it be working within the community to a grand exit out of the small city and unto a working life, there's always an opportunity to be involved and give back while benefitting from it.
I like a lot of things about Malden high school but one of the things I love the most would be the diversity of students and teachers, it make its fun environment for both teachers and students and everyone work together to achieved their goals. I don’t really know what I would change about it because I feel that I can rely on everyone in Malden High School, they are like family to me.
