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.

The school culture is very thoughtful, with a focus on nurturing the development of the whole person. They are understanding of family life and have cultivated a vibrant sense of community that is connected and humble. The schools are focused on cultivating curiosity and character in children, with a calm and encouraging atmosphere. The teachers are fantastic, and they seem to really love their jobs. The facilities are well-thought-out and well designed for creating a positive school culture.
I'm currently a senior just about to graduate MRH, and I like it here a lot. We are rather small, only 350 students in the high school, and it is very unique. What I like the most is the caring enviornment, and the teachers. The students here are very open and friendly, and the staff are amazing. I could turn to almost every one of them if I had a problem, and they'd listen. I love the way things are taught here, and am glad I was able to experience here rather than anywhere else. Of course, I am mainly speaking for the high school, but the rest of my years here were amazing as well. The only downside is that the middle school (7th-8th) and high school are in the same building which creates a couple problems. However, it doesn't feel too crowded. Overall, I would reccomend it, it is a great district with faculty who really care about their students.
