I was in the Specialty Center for Information Technology at Matoaca High School. The program is great; however, there are room for improvements. Since I started there, they added more Cybersecurity courses, which is beneficial to many of the students enrolled there. My experience with Matoaca was very good, I did not get bullied, nor did I see anything suspicious. The staff is really nice and wonderful to talk to if you show respect to them. This school is only really diverse in the sense of black and white, but it is not a racist environment. Everyone really gets along at that school. There is also a program there for special needs students. This is one of the distinctive features on Matoaca that I really liked. A lot of people at Matoaca are really into academics, but there are plenty of students who appear to be non-motivated. This school has a variety of clubs and resources available to students.
My experience in Matoaca has been amazing. The administration and teachers care about the students and push them to be their best. The faculty treats the students as their own. Matoaca could have more funding put into the preforming and visual arts departments. Overall it’s an amazing school.
I had a pretty great experience at Matoaca High School! The only complaint I have is that they took out the locker pods and the typical lunchroom tables and chairs that we were all used to, we now have elementary sized lunch tables (as high schoolers, we have a lot more height and our knees touch the bottom of the table which is not comfortable) and our backpacks have to sit on the dirty, germy floor during fourth lunch. The teachers are very understanding and the all of the staff are very kind.
Matoaca High School is a good school! I am in love with their music department, especially their show choir that I have been a member of for 3 years!
I have met amazing people with the same interests as me. The teachers are also down to earth with you and made my learning experience great.
Everything about the school was great, except for the food; better to bring your lunch unless you had a cool teacher to bring in pizza.
I graduated from Matoaca High School in 2015. I had a decent experience there other than the racism from white people I experienced. It's really not enough diversity within the teachers that they hire. But overall it is a good school to attend and one of the newer ones in the county.
Love Matoaca! Dr Murray is amazing and involved in everything at MHS ❤️ I am graduating a year early but I wouldn’t change a thing about Matoaca!
The school is ok it’s just a lot of fighting and it’s sometimes hard to learn. Some teachers don’t really care about you and if you pass.
Matoaca High School was a great way for me to find who I really am. I was able to leap out of my comfort zone and try new things. The administration was amazing and I formed many amazing bonds with the poeople there.
It’s A Great School, Good Teachers And Youu Are Bound To Have A Good Education. The Teachers Are The Best They Will Do Whatever Is Possible To Help You In Every way They Can.
Attending Matoaca High School has allowed me to make memories and relationships that will last a lifetime. The teachers weren't only there to help me with my education, but they definitely helped me with life lessons as well. Matoaca High school is a school that I would recommend everyone to attend if it is an option, it will impact your life for the better.
Matoaca highschool has good teachers, the school over all is nice but the school is very confusing. The classes are all over the place. There is an immense amount of drugs and thief’s at the school.
I just moved here, but the atmosphere academically, is very competitive. It pushes me to be a better student and maintain good grades. The people here all act like family, same with the sports groups.
I liked the performing arts program here. The school puts a lot of money into the arts and it gives the students a boost of encouragement to do great. The core classes are just somewhat acceptable. Teachers can be a bit better, and so can the students. The lunches can be a lot healthier, none of it is nutritious.
I would like for more experienced teachers to be hired. Plus the food could get better like some of the things were expired or just taste very bad. I feel like we should have learned more things that would help us in life because some of the things we were learning we would never use in the real world.
I like that they have so much for students to do and clubs to join throughout their years of high school. Something I want to change about my school is all the unnecessary drama.
