Montclair Public Schools have been a great experience for me. The diversity, clubs, athletics, and academics are strong. Unfortunately, the facilities at Montclair High School are lacking making my senior year horrible. They found bacteria in the stairwell of the main building which later collapsed. The school needs more money to address problems like these before they occur. Other than that, my social and academic life at Montclair were great!

Montclair High School is amazing! I have learned to be a more confident student, a better writer and an overall better person because of the teachers, students and faculty who come there. I am so happy that I attended Montclair High!
My experience there was average. There are great things about this school, like how I have lots of friends, and the teachers are cool. Sports surround our school. Unfortunately, the safety is subpar, the administration is terrible, and the facilities are downright nasty. They should clean the bathrooms more often, and fix the safety situation, and then the school would be a very good rating.
