Metuchen Public School District Reviews

The Metuchen Public School District gives a lot of opportunities for students. As a performing arts student I go on trips and perform in many different cities through Metuchen High School. There are many unique opportunities such as breaking the chain club, and the mud run that our school hosts every year. Great place for students to thrive and truly discover themselves.

Metuchen Schools are above average. I'm a student here and I enjoy it. We are a small district, but a loving one, because all schools in our district support one another. There are a lot of academic, athletic, and artistics opportunities for each student, younger, and older, here in Metuchen.
I loved some of my teachers and felt that they really taught me both skills I can use in school and college but also general traits that will help me throughout life. However, there were some things I would change such as the school culture/diversity and some of the teaching styles.
