Medford High School Reviews
Rating 3.82 out of 5 44 reviews
Medford is a very good school. We have tons of opportunities for sports, recently we got a brand new track as well as a turf field. We also have a lot of options for dual credit classes and AP classes so we can earn college credit. Even though our school has a lot of opportunities we still have some problems. This year one of my English assignments was to create a recommendation report of what should be fixed or changed in our school. The biggest complaint that people had was the maintenance and up keep of our school. Now our referendum this year was to get a whole new school that would be safer so just updated to new safety codes as well as temperature control would be better ans also more classrooms for us. Also on the referendum was to get a whole new parking lot because the kids no longer feel safe parking at school. That is one of the reasons I that really like Medford High School, because when there is a clear problem they do their best to fix it.
Many of the school staff are very accepting of students' identities and different beliefs. However, students can only be called a nickname if their parents consent to that which has put lots of students in danger. Many staff members are very caring towards the students and genuinely want whats best for the kids.
I really enjoy the Medford High School! I feel that I learned so much here, and the teachers are super kind! A newer building with updated facilities would be great, but I love attending school at Medford High!
Good school for the area. Great ELL Special Education program, and most (not all) teachers are kind and willing to take extra time out of their day to help you.
I liked the teachers at Medford Senior High, they helped me achieve my goals and I became very close with many of them. Medford Senior High also offers many dual credit classes that help tremendously and they have a lot of fun electives that help prepare you for life.
It's one of the best schools in the area considering it's in a fairly rural part of the state. It's part of a very close knit community which transfers to the school and makes it a very friendly enviornment. The special ed program is the best in the area and has helped many families get their children a good education regardless of education. Although there isn't much physical diversity in terms of race, there is much mental diversity in view points which breeds healthy dialogues between people of opposing views.
Medford High was very good at challenging their students academically. When something became "too easy," the teachers would continue to engage students in new subjects and even go out of their way to find more difficult material. The only thing I would change is Medford's lack of attention to the arts.
I liked that I felt welcome by all the teachers. One thing I would like to see changed, if it hasn't already is for there to be a stricter bullying policy in place so that those that are being bullied know that if they report it something will be done about it.
Medford is a very local small school atmosphere, it has given me as a student hundreds of opportunities and extra circulars. I've never felt discouragement from any staff, and I have the ability to connect with all of my fellow students, freshman to senior. The only problem with the school is the student lack of motivation to do things, Their are so many amazing opportunities we are given and no one takes them. I loved my time at Medford Area Senior high and would recommend new coming parents to consider it.
Medford High School is filled with caring teachers who want you to succeed. Not only will the teachers do just about anything to help you understand material, but the school monitors the progress of everyone and steps in to help if its needed. Also, the music program here is incredible! The music program is filled with extremely talented individuals that work hard to become the best they can be.
I like the small town feel of our high school, with the high-quality forward-thinking educational system that is in place.
I enjoyed all four years at my high school. I participated in 2 sports all four years, gymnastics and volleyball, both we great experiences. Although I have loved my school experience there are a few things I would like to see differently. At lunch I would love to see a few more healthy options, we use to have a salad bar a few times a week and I wish we still had that. Also, I would like to see my school's gymnastics team be able to have a building at the school to practice and compete where we would not have to move equipment or travel a few miles to practice. Also, the option to graduate early would be a good choice for my school to consider and I think a lot of students would benefit from the choice. Beside these few things my school has been amazing.
The school was good academically and there was many different opportunities to get involved in the school. The music program was also good and one of the best I've seen around.
Great school with teachers who are always eager to help you no matter what the issue. The teachers are also eager to listen to personal issues you may be having and they help you with scholarship and college applications.
This is a small town and is usually very safe. There are not many threats, and we do not need metal detectors. There is only one cop that walks through the school occasionally.
I loved my extracurricular activities. In college I wish there was a way to manage being involved and getting good grades like in highschool.
Medford High School has great teachers and is a great place to go to school. There are lots of ways to get involved with clubs and sports. Even though our school is small it is a top ranking school in Wisconsin. My favorite experiences that I miss is the involvement. I could be involved in so many things and still manage to be in the top ten percent of my class.
