Maplewood-Richmond Heights School District Reviews

I have attended Maplewood since I was in preschool, and my entire experience including this year has been a wonderful academic experience. I believe that most of the teachers are great at their jobs and they make classes fun. For the past two years, this year being my sophomore year and last year my freshman, I have been more stressed because of the workload, but that’s expected. The other students are also very picky of who they’re friends with and will cut someone off for the most outlandish of reasons. I would probably rate Maplewood higher if I had a better social experience, but the academics are stellar! There are so many awards from associations displayed all over the school.

Maplewood prepared me for being a global citizen and taught me to be a critical thinker better than my college did! I came to university more aware of many issues. Though college is said to be an experience to teach us about tolerance and diversity, I felt that I have to teach others about these things, I feel very much like my university is lacking in fostering creative, critically thinking, aware and open minded students. My education at MRH was far more thought provoking, well rounded, and enriched than that of my liberal arts education at Truman State University. MRH helped me develop leadership skills I also don't have the opportunity to practice or develop further in University. MRH provides resources to its students and fosters a strong, well connected community.
Maplewood-Richmond Heights School District is on an uprise. The District continues to grow and advances in many ways. As an athlete, it is always rewarding to see the sports teams doing well, but school isn't all about the sports. MRH's average act score has increased every year for the past few years now. Graduation rates are getting higher, things look good, but can always be better. I believe the district could improve its maintenance. The girls' bathroom stalls never seem to lock. The other thing I think they could improve is putting students through the appropriate amount of rigorous courses, sometimes not everyone is ready to advance.
