Match Charter Public School Reviews

When I transferred over from my old high school to Match in january, I felt like I was in a good environment things were well and I felt good in an ok place, Being able to make a couple close friends helped me out alot. Things were okay until almost the end of freshman year came around.
Apparently, there was a rumor going around that I was doing something really bad towards a certain group of people and that's when things went south. Everyone was pointing their fingers at me as if that's proof (even though it wasn't) and that's when things got worst.
I was suspended for a few days despite their being little evidence of me doing anything wrong. That's when my bitterness for this school began to take over who I was.
The kids there would bully me up until senior year which is why I Hate everyone there. I thought Diversity was a good thing but The kids there are bullies and very wild and hard to manage. Being there has made me like black people(i'm black btw) less.

Match gets us prepared for test and major tests and makes us think critically about situations. In other ways, Match has made us ready for college and made us be dependent for ourselves without having to depended on anyone. Match could be different with they had more sports teams or even more activities and clubs people can join in order to feel more connected with each other.
I like that Match Middle School takes safety and learning very seriously. However, it needs more diverse teachers and better lunch. It also needs more hands-on activities and more fun and engaging field trips for the younger grades.
