Mattanawcook Academy Reviews
My experience at this school is pretty great! I grew more confident in myself as a person the more involved I became in sports and clubs like Drama and music classes with the band and chorus. I love to sing in our Honor Choir and perform concerts in Band, the Music Theory class is both challenging and surprisingly easy to understand for me, since I plan to be more involved with music after I graduate. This school could be considered unique with our lunch ladies, since they always do their best to advertise what they have in their kitchen for breakfast to help encourage kids to eat a decent breakfast, whether it be yogurt with granola, cereal, fruit, breakfast pizzas, muffins, juice, and a lot more. Another thing special about this school is the support I got from my music teachers, who helped me reach my potential and perform in the Maine All-State Music Festival. They supported me by taking me and other music kids down to the audition and encouraged me with advice and uplifting words to boost my confidence and sing better. I even had some good wishes from my other teachers who were proud of our achievements in sports and music, as well as drama and other activities. I wouldn't want it any other way if I had the chance to start over. I'm happy with my high school experience here.
I enjoyed attending Mattanawcook Academy for the two years I had. I made friends that I will have my entire life. Though, it was frustrating for me to not be able to be apart of NHS when I have a very high GPA. Also, it was irritating to watch my sisters graduation and see all of the local scholarships go to relatives or closley related people attached to the scholarship or whoever was giving them out.
I like that if you are struggling, there is always someone that is willing to help you even if they don’t know anything about the subject. The faculty here are amazing. Something I am not a big fan of at MA is the number of times a person can retake a test to get a grade. One can take a test the first time, fail, and then get many other chances to pass it. Personally I think that is unfair because there are other people that actually studied for the test that will actually try to pass it, then there are others that will just look at it the first time to see the content of it and then take it the second time already knowing about what’s going to be on it.
