Maranacook Community High School Reviews

The education of Maranacook is stellar. The teachers sincerely care for their students, and you will always be placed in a class that's your speed. When it isn't, the instructors will do everything they can to ensure you're up to it, and not just for that class, but for future classes with more rigorous requirements.

The community around the school may suffer from a severe societal entropy caused by underage drugs, alcoholism, domestic abuse, poverty, and a cultural closedness and abandonment, the education system is highly profitable.

There is no privilege associated with wealth in Maranacook, but there is one associated with a closed-topped pyramid that seats those who maintain a smalltown power circle, like something out of Footloose! I feel like Ren!

While the social aspect of Maranacook is not very open or friendly to those who don't fit their socio-cultural mold, the educational institution itself is unstained by it. The education is wonderful, but the community isn't.

Maranacook is a pretty peaceful, accepting school, with a good variety of activities for a rural school. The food is shockingly good-a wide variety of flatbreads, pasta, wraps, and a salad bar. I like how they're trying to stray away from a focus on sports-they have some unique clubs like nerd camp and anime club. The teachers, while at times confusing, are usually friendly and helpful-there's something called focus time, where you go to see a teacher for help or just stay in homeroom. I didn't really share the school spirit but saw a lot of it. You'd mostly see it at Winter Carnival, where kids sign up for small activities in the morning, then some sign up for big afternoon activities like tug-of-war or volleyball. Yet some of the morning activities are spectating, so you'd be sitting around. They offer many dual enrollment and AP classes, so it's great how they're preparing you for college. There isn't much diversity, however, a good amount of foreign exchange students study here.
I had a great time at MCHS. Great teachers willing to help and support both in and out of academic context. The administration and staff is really good as well, they make it work! It has a great cultural diversity as, despite its a pretty small school, allows exchange students to join in.
