The overall experience at Maywood Academy was excellent. The teachers are really nice and helpful here. When it comes to academics and college readiness, teachers makes sure to push you to your limits. They always make the lectures interesting and try to implement teaching practically. The school is less diverse, but majority of the students and staffs are down to earth and friendly. The campus police officer is an amazing gentleman and is always around keeping the school environment safe and peaceful. There are some great clubs and after school programs offered in the high school. The school always provide us with fresh, nutritious food for breakfast, lunch, and after school snacks. I have seen a lot of parents getting involved with school by working or volunteering for the school. Its an amazing school. Not for athletics, but there is a lot of opportunity when it comes to academics.

Great professors, calm and safe environment, and most importantly many available resources. Throughout my high school experience, I met many great teachers who always tried helping one way or another. The resources they would provide for each of their students was exceedingly appreciated. The environment was always very peaceful, never much of a scandalous school, not problematic at all. The rest of the administration faculty were very nice, always smiling and making sure everyone felt safe. The school would always remain clean and the food was great.
Maywood Academy, during my school year (2011-2015, I think) was somewhat okay. Teachers were considerate of their student's needs. Staff was slow when it came to making things happen. There were so many students and very limited counsellors. When it came down to college counseling, only one counselor was left in charge of the whole senior and junior year class! That wasn't helpful at all. If I could go to another school... I'm not sure I would, despite everything. I met good people, got help when I looked for it and made friends that understood me. Maywood Academy HS wasn't the best, but it felt like home.
