Mattawan High School is, to put it simply, a problematic school. There are teachers who are not qualified for their jobs, staff members who gossip publicly about students, and quite a few student fights. Instead of spending money for the art/music activities, they spend money on are constantly losing football team. They don’t have enough money to give JV teams real uniforms, so students have to brainstorm to figure out how to get them. Luckily, sometimes the administrators can put there heads together and actually achieve something. There are a few teachers that actually want to help students succeed, and they deserve a pay raise. Without them, the whole school would fall apart and more foolibg around would happen. I’m sure that most schools have this problem and that’s why this school has an average rating. If they would just make sure that teachers had the necessary requirements to teach, everything would be better.

We have had a great experience with Mattawan Consolidated Schools since we brought our family here in 2010. We originally thought having multiracial children in a mostly caucasian area would be a challenge for our girls, but were impressed with it turning out to be a non-issue for us.

The school and it's administrators have been very hands on with our oldest daughter's special needs, and also with our youngest having multiple medical issues during the last couple years! They have adapted their teaching curriculum to help both girls succeed and thrive and we are so grateful for their care and attention.
Mattawan High School contains a rigorous curriculum which can be tough in certain aspects. Most teachers are great however some leave little to be desired. All classes that I have personally taken, except for one, has had great material in terms of what is taught. Overall this school will prepare you for future education and contains some unique qualities.
