Muhlenberg School District Reviews

Muhlenberg School District has become the so called "black sheep" of the area. The school's overall academic performance on standardized tests has been low, and from the outside it looks like the only thing we have going for us is our boys basketball team. However, within the walls of the school there are countless students and teachers that care so deeply for each other. My teachers have pushed me and have helped me thrive, not only academically, but as a person. My accomplishments would not be what they are today without my chemistry teacher pushing me to compete in science fairs. The three 5s I have scored on AP exams would not have been possible without my teachers working endlessly to prepare my classes. Beyond the academics, every teacher offers a plethora of support. On the topic of diversity, while other schools have begun looking down on us for our increasing diversity, it is one of my favorite things about Muhlenberg.

Muhlenberg is a wonderful place to work. The staff supports and collaborates with each other with a single focus in mind, students. The schools are laid out like a college campus and the facilities are impeccable which help instill a sense of pride. The teachers are caring and encouraging. The administration is supportive and visible in classrooms and buildings. There is a unified vision and sense of team at Muhlenberg.
I am a senior at Muhlenberg High School. I have been in this school district all my life and throughout the years the school has gotten better with safety and diversity. I think overall it is a good environment. With recent changes in regulations and rules during our free periods made the high school experience worse. Some staff/ teachers were lacking in connection towards their students. Some teachers would and still drown students in work even during our free time and when students address the concerns there has nothing that has been done. However the school always made sure we felt safe.
