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.

My time at Matignon was great! There were so many classes offered to support my education and my readiness for college. Also, there were many sports programs, extra-curricular activities and study abroad programs that I took part in.
I personally had some moments I enjoyed during my years at Matignon, but also some I did not quite as much like. My freshman year, everyone seemed to really like each other, our administrators, and overall had such great school spirit. By my senior year, everyone hated going to the school. The administration does not and will not listen to any of the student's ideas! They wouldn't even allow us to have a spirit week, and they had the nerve to ask where the school spirit went. The fact of the matter is that, if Matignon wants to keep going up instead of spiraling back down the road they were on a few years ago, they have to give the students a voice.
