Methacton High School Reviews

First, Methacton lacks a lot of diversity which in my personal opinion is essential in creating a comfortable and understanding atmosphere for kids who are first-generation immigrants, African-Americans etc. Another thing that I didn't enjoy was that some teachers that I've encountered over the years have been purely insensitive and lack passion in teaching, making it harder for a student to do well and thrive. Others have been very pleasant, but those teachers are hard to come by. Above all, the worst thing about Methacton is the allotted budget of the school. Because of a strike, school became much more difficult because teachers had to fit extensive material into a small curriculum. In spite of all this, it was easy to make a lot of friends because of the school size. Sports/activities here were a huge part of my life these 4 years and they were essential in building my character which I'm very thankful for. Finally, academics here are pretty great, even though it can be difficult

Science fair team is very strong, and the competitive culture is built healthily and well. Teachers are very hit-or-miss, as some are absolutely excellent at what they do and others are incapable or essentially cold. Still others have good intentions but no way of implementing those intentions. The administration is packed full of fools who have no clue how to spend money. Elsewhere, the school administration is simply ignorant of and disconnected from the student body, constantly surprised by their discovery of years-old trends and cultural developments within the school. Furthermore, they claim to create an environment that protects all students from bullying and harm of any kind yet fail to implement any sort of systematic change and instead resort to punishing kids for single incidents, all while displaying a pathological bias towards athletes. Methacton could be a very good school, but as it is, with administrators such as "Dr." Kochenour ruling over the student-teacher body, no.
Methacton High School is an overall average school. There is a wide variety of course you could take which is great. However, recently, they have started to take some classes away and the class sizes are just too large. Moving on, there is not a lot of "school pride." No one ever gets super into spirit week and not too many kids actually attend all of our games. On the bright side, the food is actually okay. We have a wide variety of choices including a pasta bar, pizza, wraps, daily changing options, etc. Lastly, our facilities are disgusting. The bathroom toilet seats are pealing and turning yellow.
