Mattoon High School Reviews
I believe my high school has grown a lot over the years that I have attended and I would love to see it grow even more. Since we have recently gotten a new principal, the school has been friendlier and it has opened eyes in the school system and community to be kind to one another. I think we can grow even more and be more technologically advanced like some other schools since most kids respond to things like that. But overall I am glad I grew up in such an environment and wish the best for any other student that will attend Mattoon High School.
Mattoon High School has a large and well-funded athletics department, but it falls behind in the field of academics. Many sports are offered, but few extracurriculars are present. State funded programs are decent, but student organizations fall apart quickly due to little support. Funding goes mainly to new computers that are seldom used- despite the fact that our textbooks are falling apart and some ceilings have had leaks for years. The teachers are very friendly and most of them know much about what they teach. This school feels safe and bullying is seldom witnessed. However, many students are insecure about their chances of getting into a college. This is due mainly to poverty in the area, though it can be also attributed to what many students consider a poor education as compared to other schools. Overall, this high school is decent and does not present any major problems, but most students and many teachers feel that the school could be doing better.
My high school has decent teachers that seem to care, but also has some that just want to fail you. I didn’t hate my school, but the environment was more about sports than learning. On top of that there was a lot of bullying and not enough enforcing of the dress code. I would like for the teacher that don’t want to be there, not to teach there. I would also like to see someone do something about the bullying instead of blaming the victim. I would like to see students actually want to be there rather than run out screaming.
