The style and effort of teaching there varies from teacher to teacher. Some of the methods used were excellent and the class showed improvement and knowledge of the subject at the end on the year, while other classes lacked in theses areas. The environment fluctuates also, going from friendly to hostile at time very quickly. And while the school does have many extra programs that engage the students, it's funding towards many of them are slim. The facilities are keep decent, yet at times aren't par, due to the lack of custodians. Over all the Massaponax is an average school with some issues, but not too many to be outputting.
Massaponax High school has given me the ideal representation of what a high school should be like. I have maintained good grades and maintained great friendships throughout my high school career. Despite of the negative situations and circumstances that have came up about massaponax recently, I don’t feel that those instances reflect my school as a whole. The actions that few students have choose to show in a negative way do not outweigh the positive actions of many students at my school. Massaponax high school may not be The perfect school everyone hopes and dreams about, but it is a school that will empower you to make a difference in the lives of others.
