Montclair Public Schools Reviews
My years attending Montclair schools hold some of my most cherished memories. Teachers from elementary school showed me that, with their support, I can achieve my biggest dreams. My middle school teachers enlightened my education experience by teaching me through class discussion and interaction, rather than outdated and worn out textbooks. Finally, Montclair High has pushed me, and has helped me achieve outstanding academic achievements. From building long lasting relationships with teachers, guidance counselors and staff, to meeting a befriending some of my closest friends, there is not a single moment I regret about my experience in Montclair Public Schools.
MHS is one of the best public high schools in northern Jersey. I feel the students are greatly cared for. Students are prepared for a wide range of careers and college options. MHS provides a rich and multifaceted set of educational and extracurricular activities. I have really enjoyed my time at MHS. It has prepared me for my next journey, Spelman College in Ga.
I went to Watchung which was very strong in the academic field, some of the electives however were seriously lacking, gym was my favorite elective. Science Lab, Greenhouse, and Technology all needed reworking. I then went to mount Hebron and looking back on it I am not very impressed, math was the only subject I think I actually learned anything in, and that was only for 2 out of my 3 years, one year I had a very poor teacher, who could not explain at all and refused to answer my classes questions most of the time. High school has been much better because there are a lot of options, for every good teacher there has been a lacking teacher. I learnt a lot but also wasted a lot of class time with incompetent lazy teachers. Overall Montclair public schools is very mixed with teachers on both the high and low end of the spectrum.
