Maspeth High School is a fairly new school, but it's worth going to. I will be a junior and I have loved my experience here. I'm in two Varsity sports and two clubs. This school definitely challenges you but it prepares you for the real world through Socratic seminars and debates to improve speaking skills. And the staff squishes any problems that occur which makes you feel safe. All in all, this is a very good school and I recommend this very much!

Maspeth High School is a great school - It is new and the teachers are mostly young and extremely dedicated and enthusiastic about what they do. Whenever you need help they are always available. From the teachers to the guidance counselors you always feel like somebody has your back.

Maspeth High School is in the middle of Queens NY but somehow they have made it feel like your in High School Musical! The sports and clubs are very supported and encouraged and all the students respect each other and work together.
Maspeth High School is a school with a great learning environment, multiple sufficient resources, helpful teachers. The school stresses practicing public speaking skills - Socratic seminars, debates, declamations- to help prepare students for future public speaking. The schools also offer a wide range of AP courses to provide you with college readiness. Teachers provide office hours in designated dates. More importantly, they have the passion and patience to teach you and give feedback to you for improvement. The teacher and students in Maspeth High School maintain in a close bond which creates a friendly learning environment through office hour and clubs. Maspeth High School, fortunately, seldom has bully incidents. Students are mostly well-behaved. On the other hand, the school requires a dress code which most students do not like. The school did not create sufficient amount of activities in maintaining school spirit. Overall, I highly recommend Maspeth High School.
