Manchester Essex Regional School District Reviews
As an individualistic, academically-motivated student, my experience at MERSD has been overall a positive one. The school's educational environment is unrivaled by most others, the petit student body allowing for much student-teacher interaction and the rigorous curriculum providing adequate adversity for high-achieving students. In terms of general ambiance, the building itself is modern and comfy, the teachers trustworthy and approachable. Additionally, I have been pleasantly surprised by the interest of the guidance department in my academic well-being over the past two years, their presence more than enough to aid my acceptance into the Ivy League. However, there is an unfortunate lack of ethnic and cultural diversity in the school system and town (a recent statistic claimed over 97% whiteness). On top of this, athletics are far overemphasized, both socially and financially, leaving little consideration room for music and the arts or the material deficits of the faculty.
Very competitive academics! I'm really grateful to have gone here because it sets you up for college really nicely. Colleges like this school, and it is one of the greenest schools. It's very preppy and not diverse at all. It has vigorous academics and great teachers!
This is a great school. The grade size is very small which is good and bad. I've had small classes and the teachers know me, but with such a small school, sometimes the offerings aren't as diverse as a larger school. It also can be somewhat competitive and students feel bad if they don't get A's. Also, sometimes the school spirit is lacking. Overall, it's been a good place to go to high school.
