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.
I have been a student at the Maplewood Richmond Heights School District since first grade. Throughout my time here, from elementary school to high school, I have noticed a fierce dedication within the teachers of helping their students succeed. Nearly every teacher will not just know you as a student, but will know you as a person. This, and the fact that Maplewood is a small school, helps the teacher specialize ways in which every student can learn efficiently. At Maplewood schools, everyone knows everyone. The schools don't just feel like schools, they feel like places where you can be friends with anyone and still truly be yourself. Maplewood kids always get opportunities to follow their interests and speak out about what they are passionate about.
As much as students complain about high school, I know deep down that my school is actually really nice. It's given me so many opportunities, as well as the teachers that actually care about your success. A teacher's job title says little about what they actually give to students. Every teacher has a story to tell, advice to give, and they do just that. And the students at MRH are truly different from any other school. Most of these kids have been together since pre-school, but when someone new transfers in, we try our best to include them. Cliques aren't a thing, as the divided friend "groups" have boundaries that are easily blurred and crossed. We stick up for each other, we help each other out. There are many different schools that I could've gone to, public and private. I'm so glad that 10 years ago, my parents chose to put me in the MRH school district. I wouldn't have it any other way.
