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.
Methuen has great educators that are passionate about their work. They offer advanced classes in a completely remodeled HS with state of the art Science labs. You get a quality education for free!
