I like the diversity and overall student culture of Malden High School. For example, we have a variety of clubs for students to participate in to get involved in the community and volunteer. Additionally, we also have a lot of diversity at Malden High, resulting in exposure to different backgrounds and people, being quite inclusive. Unfortunately, the academic variety at Malden High is somewhat extensive but not always valuable. Some of the extracurricular courses at Malden High may prove to be useful to some basic understanding for some students but I haven't really gained much insight from them. I also think the faculty have been damaged after the pandemic due to a loss of many teachers and being forced to add less experienced teachers or not be able to fill the spot at all.
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.
I enjoy the people and the teachers! They make the experience all the better! The teachers are compassionate and strive to create a caring environment for their students, especially during the pandemic. My only problem would be poor communication. I attempted to transfer into the school in the summer but got a response the week before the start of the year.
