Montclair Public Schools Reviews
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.
My experience at Montclair High School was amazing, from the first day of Freshmen year to the first day of Senior Year. I loved how diverse the school was, along with the teachers. Meeting people with different backgrounds and beliefs was a great experience that I hope everyone could go through. The teachers that I've had were really good with me and my classmates. They did a good job of teaching us things that will help us out in the real world, there's nothing I would change about my teachers. Montclair High School is a really good school and I wish could share my experience at this high school with other high school students around the world.
So many choices and opportunities! I have been in the Montclair Public School system through my entire childhood and I had such a great experience. They are really focused on the achievement of their students and facilitating the best possible environment for success.
