The middle school is fantastic! Teachers really care about kids and work together to help them be successful. Administration is AMAZING! High School has all sort of problems. Students are unhappy and there is very little school spirit. Sports teams suffer from lack of experienced coaches, with several exceptions.

At Mathews the teachers care about their students, being unsuccessful is not an option. Although, our school is small we have a wide variety of activities and classes to take. The only thing I would change is the some teachers priorities needs to be the students.
Mathews is a small but friendly town with a small and friendly school system. My graduating class will have about 90 kids in it-- just to give an idea. The only downside is that, because of its size, the school is limited in its academic offerings, and that the guidance counselors are not very good at guiding their students. Most students in my grade were not told about the possibility to obtain an Associate's degree upon graduation, and those that were informed knew only about it through outside sources.
