This school is very challenging academically, although it really prepares you for college. Within the last few years, there have been over 5 kids with perfect SAT scores! The teachers really do care for their students and Methacton is starting to integrate technology deeply within the classroom
Review Methacton High School
Overall, Methacton is a great school with competitive and ambitious students. Though some classes can be hard (for me, it was in STEM classes for the most part), the teachers are all willing to help and have open office hours. I wish the counselors could give more resources and offer more advice when it came to the college application process - compared to those of private schools, our counselors were lacking in these areas. Pretty good cafeteria food, friendly teachers for the most part, and a lot of fun and unique student events like Mr. Methacton, Minithon, Post Prom, Senior Banquet, Senior Trip, and Physics Day at Six Flags.
The best adjective to describe the teachers at MHS is engaging! Some of the teachers are "out-there" (particularly the History Department), but generally they all care about their students, incorporate technology into the curriculum, and go above and beyond so students can meet their individual goals.
