Mahwah High School Reviews
At Mahwah High School, I was involved in two different sports teams, several clubs, and excelled in my academics as well. This high school prepared me for college well. I was able to carry my study habits and desire for exceptional grades into my college experience and I found this trait to be monumental. Something I might change about Mahwah High School is the strictness of its' lack of extra credit oppotunities. While I am aware of the fact that the teachers at Mahwah High School are attempting to prepare students for all kinds of college experiences possible for every student, there is definitely room for at least a few extra credit opportunities to be provided. I have only completed one semester in college so far, yet I have had several opportunities to gain extra credit in just about each of my classes. This was something I had not been prepared for or used to having access to yet it made a huge difference in how my experience in each of my classes panned out.
Mahwah is a strong high school academically and a great community of involved students. Mahwah high school also offers a large amount of different clubs and activities, both educational and fun. The course selection is varied and there are a good amount of honors and advanced placement classes that are offered. Most of the teachers are really strong and all teachers are willing to help the students if they need extra help outside of class. Safety and security of the students and the building is a top concern and Mahwah is very good about maintaining security and keeping parents informed if an incident occurs.
Mahwah high school supplied me with multiple avenues in which I could explore my abilities and create my future. With the hundreds of options of different academic courses with talented teaching staff gives you the opportunity to study what you want. The teachers that I have at Mahwah challenged me as a learner, making me work harder then I have in the past. Mahwah High School has done a great job preparing me for the future ahead.
