I am currently a senior in Methuen High School and I've never been more bombarded with clubs and activities. Resources are always available whenever they're needed and teachers are everywhere. They care for your readiness to college and want to help you improve in academic skills and want the best for your mental health. They're at your every need, as well as all around to you, proving that your safety is their number one priority. The math and science departments have excellent teachers that are in love with the subject and create ways to get students more involved. Music and art are always expressed in different, creative ways. The diversity is one of my favorite things about this school. A person can never feel out of place because their a thousands of races, religions, and cultures represented.

Methuen Schools aren’t horrible, but they aren’t great either. The teachers only care as much as you do which is good when preparing for high school. On the downside since it is public you see a lot of everything. People smoking in bathrooms and kids getting in fights left to right. If you have a good mentality and are going to schoolchildren to learn not to “chill” you’ll do just fine. The school isn’t as strict as you’d think it is, an everything is done on the iPad. It is modern.
Most teachers are great and really care about their students. The school was very clean and fairly new while I was there. Food in the cafeteria is alright, chicken nuggets with fries were always reliable. Genuinely enjoyed the time I spent here. Atmosphere is good, but people need to learn how to walk in the hallways. Football games were always fun.
