Malden High School Reviews
I must admit teachers and stuffs of Malden High are very proficient and devoted. Most of them are impartial and fair to students. If you meet a problem with a teacher, house principles are the best to help you solve it. Otherwise, don't feel strange or depressed when some teachers distinguish you because of your race, your skin, or you knowledge. You should always give yourselves a leg up, you must! But, if your ability is just approximate Honors or CP classes, don't try to choose AP ones because you will be very tired and bored. Teachers won't help you fix it. Anyway, in Malden High School, I had unforgettable and interesting experiences. I have been stronger and more positive, and after obstacles here, I suddenly recognize my life has just started, and there will be more difficulties in the future.
The students at the school have low respect for staff and other peers. They curse at the teachers, they skip classes, there are many fights. Additionally, many students participate in the stealing at the drug store, CVS, right next to the school. Though there are many bad parts of the student body, the diversity at the school is unmatched as every class I’ve been in has had so much representation of different races in cultures. Never has white been the majority, but neither has any other race. Another amazing aspect is the connections with the teachers. The teachers at the school are vulnerable to conversations that go beyond academia, allowing them to know students and understand how their life at home is impactful to their student presence. These relationships make school more enjoyable, but the student disrespect is embarrassing on the school’s part.
Malden High School has tons of classes, is extremely diverse, and provides its students with opportunities that you wouldn't expect from a public school. The teachers are fantastic. The cafeterias (there are two) are above-average and have many offerings, but it's still school lunch. There's a pool. There are a lot of clubs and after-school activities. Sports teams are really good, save for the football team. Only problem really is that the school doesn't seem to have any security (inside and outside) and kids are allowed to roam around the building whenever they want. As a result of this, the boys bathrooms are always a total mess and are usually crowded with people hitting that Juul or selling each other drugs. Food from the cafeteria also ends up in places it shouldn't.
