Muhlenberg School District Reviews

Muhlenberg School District seem to have a higher education system then my past school. The teachers are very hardworking, polite, and kind to every student. They treat us as young adults and the counselors are very involved with students progression and academics. Safety is not an issue since a new security system has been placed. I believe the only improvement needed is from the students. About two-thirds of the school take their academics and extracurricular activities seriously ad try their hardest while the rest of the student body have no worries or plans to try. Overall Muhlenberg School District would have an amazing impact in thinking about the future and open opportunities.

Muhlenberg is an amazing communities where we all get to grow and develop into real adults. The teachers there are considerate and do not prepare us only for the standardized tests; they prepare us for life. The School helps us in so many ways, with a variety of extracurricular activities, volunteering opportunities and job experiences. Not only that, but there are also many challenging courses meant to help shape our minds, and help us get a better understand of adulthood. Although the school already has a variety of foreign languages namely Spanish, German and Latin, adding more languages such as French, Italian, Chinese, Vietnamese, Irish, Portuguese and even Sign Language would really help the students broaden their knowledge. The School dies have flaws because the staff is, after all, humans; nevertheless, that they ensure our safety and our mental growth making Muhlenberg, the best second home ever.
So I moved from Reading to Muhlenberg when I was in 8th grade and there was a big culture shock for me. To go from to a school where almost everyone was Hispanic and African american, to a school where almost everyone was Caucasian. In terms of curriculum, the teachers really did believe in what they taught and everyone had their own personality. The workload was more than what they would give you in Reading, but it was still manageable. They cared about safety, academics, and even got you ready for college as early at 9th grade when you took a course with Ms. Burnham on getting ready for jobs and colleges. And clubs were always easy to start and join, I even became president of Anime Club, was a part of the art club, did color guard, and joined Reading Olympics all while getting a GIEP (GIfted Individualized Education Program).
