I liked the community feeling at Matignon. Everyone was part of a team, and we all worked together to make the school motto -- "expect excellence" a reality! Unfortunately, the school was underfunded and needed attention in many areas -- the roof was caving in, the stage falling apart, and the bathrooms in disrepair, but the gym floor was redone at least twice in the four years I attended.

I'm writing my review while my family is in quarantine due to the Covid 19 virus. I've been so incredibly impressed with the response and readiness of Matignon's staff to transition the student body to online learning with such professionalism and care. The communication has been consistent, carefully thought out and through it all, I feel like the leadership is truly concerned about my son and his well being, as well as all the students. He has received regular messaging reminding him of the importance of self care, keeping up his appearance while online and the benefits of physically activity to keep fit and support his mental well being. Staff has scheduled virtual movie nights and trivia games. I'm so grateful my son is a Matignon student especially during this very difficult time.
Excellent small private highschool. My daughter is a sophomore and loves it. Kids are friendly and polite - what a change from public schools she attended prior to this! Strong curriculum, caring and highly qualified teaching staff, great teacher to student ratio, strong school spirit, excellent opportunities for science-minded kids due to academic alliances with Cambridge biotech companies. Best decision ever for my daughter! I highly recommend this school.
