Matanzas High School is a small but incredible school. After completing my freshman and sophomore year at Flagler Palm Coast High School, I transferred due to Matanzas High School's reputation. Immediately, the school size and quality of the teachers were noticeable. The faculty and staff always appear enthusiastic to part take in the education of the next generation. Another quality that Matanzas High School boasts is their involvement in athletics and devotion to student-athletes. All faculty and students support student-athletes as they represent Matanzas on and off the field. I would recommend Matanzas High School to any student looking for an encouraging learning environment backed by focused and devoted teachers.

I made so many great memories here, the teachers were great and always supportive. The reason it is not 5 stars is because of the way they handle situations at the school. It's not necessarily bad, but they could totally up security. I think they should also be more considerate of those with mental health issues. I am very glad to say that I was happy with my experience here and the way things played out for me. I will always be grateful for everything that happened to me during my high school years.
My experience at matanzas High School was one for the books. I was involved in 3 Sports and I participated in one club,a step team, called Rhythm 'n blue. Being a student there showed how much the faculty and staff cared about their students. They took a lot of safety precautions when it came to fights and drama on campus. They tried to involve us and incorporate us and prep rallies and School field days. They were always open to giving students Community hours and making sure that you have the requirements you need to graduate.
