Maynard High School has always been an incredibly close-knit community with many opportunities in a variety of activities. Academically, the classes range in difficulty. Overall, a quality education is attainable if the student puts in the work.
There are many extracurriculars at Maynard. We have a writing club, a GSA, a theatre program, a Mock Trial team, a Green Committee, a Peer Leaders group, band, chorus, Jazz band, wind ensemble, a student-run a capella group, the WAVM radio/tv station, and more. The clubs are nearly all very well-managed and it is very easy for a student to start a new club since so many teachers are willing to be an adviser. The musical groups are all really fun and pretty good. Also, most of the school is involved in some way. The band and chorus alternate between competing in either DC and Disney every two years and those trips are a blast. The radio station is almost entirely student run and is very successful. Overall extracurriculars are great. Even if they don't always come in first place competitively, they are worthwhile activities that students and teachers alike dedicate a lot of time to where you can make long lasting friends.
