I think that the school prioritizes athletics over academics and the arts which is frustrating. There are also many teachers at the school who are very knowledgeable about their particular subject, but are not very good at teaching. The environment does not feel genuine since some students are fake and close-minded. Also, teacher turn-over rate is really high, which makes it difficult for students to adapt.
Review Maranatha High School
I think because I was plugged in and had good friends, my overall experience at this school was in general okay. The faculty changed dramatically every year I was there, but I think it is good to have consistency, just so the students do not feel like they are always being uprooted and moved. The environment there never really felt genuine, because the students there sometimes were fake or rude. Despite this, there were faculty members that I felt comfortable with and was able to have a good conversation with once in a while. There were teachers that were genuine and kind, and wanted to build a relationship with their students, which I think is really great.
The choice of teachers could definitely be better. Just because they look good on paper doesn't mean that they are qualified to teach students who actually need to learn. Some teachers may know the material very, very well, but their teaching style is either not adapted to the students' needs, or they are just unable to share that information with the class in general. It is very obvious to the students which teachers go above and beyond, and which ones stick to the bare minimum. We appreciate teachers who genuinely care for our well-being, are understanding that their class is not the only class we have to do work for, and who are fair, and who are able to go above and beyond.
