The students at Mattawan were probably the best part of the school. There were very few teachers who would receive a high rating. Most of the teachers are pretty lazy. Teachers boast about being in the same room for 30 years, but you never see them make an effort to change their lesson plan to keep up with the times. They are bored in their routines, and they do nothing to change it. I had a history teacher who put a movie on that loosely related to the information we were supposed to be learning for half of the year. The academics are highly rated for our area, but this given the choice, I would not choose to go to this high school again. I love my friends that I made there, but the bullying was unreal. Most faculty, especially those whose job it was to prevent and manage bullying, barely helped those who were tormented. The faculty only cared about those who were disabled when it came to bullying, because they were obvious victims. The faculty looked good when helping them
Mattawan is a small, homely, and humble school that boasts a great roster of students that are more than enjoyable to be around. Teaching can be lacking at times, yet there are also teachers who make learning an exciting and pleasing process. The school has to deal with a marginally small budget, but they definitely do their best to dish it out in resources and teaching. The school's culture and students are in my opinion the strongest part of the school. We have a very nice, accepting, and fun base of students who are mostly successful in academics and sports as well as social life. We have a very strong set of students here that I am proud to call my friends, and I only wish I was able to see them more in college.
