    Formerly one of the preeminent high schools in the Boston Area, the new administration has made a conscious effort to try and sabotage the boys school as much as possible. Well over 75% of the faculty has resigned/ retired since my Freshman year (this is not an exaggeration), as have nearly 50% (from 120 at Freshman orientation down to less than 70 today) of my classmates in my year alone. These stats speak for themselves, and as much as I love Malden Catholic, administration's recent actions clearly show that the school views the "School for Girls" as its future and has seemingly given up on the boys side, which was once so prominent and impactful in molding the lives of thousands of successful young men.
    My experience at Malden Catholic was an exciting 4 year journey. I was lucky enough to be part of the State Championship Malden Catholic hockey team in 2016, and the warm reception that we gained from the whole community was unbelievable. Throughout my tenure at MC, each year has progressively gotten better. My senior year has been terrific and the education that I received has allowed me to be admitted into numerous competitive universities. The sense of community with the aspect of a co-divisional education brings out the abilities and skills of all students. Teachers are willing to help at Malden Catholic, and the main goal is to develop young men to succeed. Success is the end goal, and it is a very reachable fate with the dedication that the teachers display at Malden Catholic.
