The school itself is very old and kind of gross, i am going to be a senior in the fall and we’ve a mice problem all year. Due to the schools old age it’s very run down and a lot of things do not work. However, academically we are very intelligent school. Athletically, our football team is TRASH and our school doesn’t care to much about our other sports, our soccer teams tho are absolutely incredible. Our administration hates us and they are rude and ruin school spirit. Matawan is immensely diverse and a wild yet fun experience!

I have had a great experience here! As long as you work hard you will get nice teachers for each subject. There is a diverse set of extracurricular activities with many opportunities to get volunteer hours. Speaking of diversity, the school is very racially diverse, every class is like a little sample of america with people coming from many walks of life. I feel the AP class selection does a great job in preparing you for college. Overall a great school, I would do it all over again if I could.
My experiences in High School are mixed, ranging from memories I will cherish for a lifetime, to moments I would like to forget. The overall environment felt very safe compared to many other districts. The majority of the staff encouraged success and worked hard to not only guide students, but also develop efficient friendships with them. As far as the positive experiences go, there are also the negatives. Some days were better than others, and it often felt as if it was hopeless to achieve your goals. However, despite the days of hopelessness, the surroundings and faculty members made it easier to see past all issues. By the time graduation was around the corner, everything that lead up to the moment felt like a large blur and only made me feel relief that with the help of everyone around me and my own determination, I was able to succeed.
