Matanzas High School Reviews
This school is the spill over average. Living in northern Florida, diversity may not come as the first institutions' trait. None the less, the language courses are exceptional, the teachers are almost always passionate to their subjects and the staff are firm but very reasonable amongst the relationship between them and the students. While I do wish they had more staff on counseling and mental health check ups, the guidance office and workers there have helped me tremendously and I cannot thank them enough for guiding me in the right direction and supporting me along the way. I still have two more years to finish, but I don't plan on leaving anytime soon!
In Matanzas High School, I felt that my school wasn't there to support me as a student through it. I was bullied, harassed, and targeted many times and I felt that no one on administration seemed to care. I once went to report a bullying incident to an administrator in tears, and she cut me off and gave me a referral for being out of dress code. The arts were also severely underfunded, while the football team got a majority of the money, as the stereotype goes. I found myself in the MHS arts department and had to help overcome the lack of financial support. We also had many threats and students who said frightening things with little to no consequences often times. We had also lost two students while I was in school and it felt like no one was there to properly support the students who were trying to cope. I was not allowed to leave class to calm down from grief the day after my friend died. Luckily, high school was only temporary, and now I'm on to bigger and better things.
Matanzas High School is a great school; you have the access and the resources to grow and excel in your goals, whether it is in academics, sports, or even in your community! The faculty and the students are nice and willing to help you! The professors there are devoted to their job and care about your learning; if you have questions, they are more than happy to help you. The student body is pretty diverse, whatever that you are into, there will be fellow students that share such thing with you.
