My experience at Methuen High has been good! The administration is a little poor at times and has a hard time helping students, but as a whole, the faculty is extremely kind and helpful. The extracurricular opportunities here are very prominent and welcoming.

My experience at Methuen High School was enriching by engaging with students that have diverse backgrounds and cultures. Throughout my four years, I was welcomed by each one of my teachers and I felt appreciated by them. My favorite thing about my high school is that our teachers and administrators looked to the students for new ideas to implement into our school. Recently, our school was rebuilt due to the fact that it was just no longer practical for the students or the teachers. After the renovations, our school was very bland and the walls were blank. To add life and culture into our school, our administration saw it as a good idea to have our student students paint a mural on our school's walls. I would say our school allows the students to explore their ideas and be themselves.
I liked the amount of AP classes available and the amazing staff members! The guidance staff in particular are amazing, and they are there to help you with whatever your needs may be. Also there is a great fine arts program, as well as sports. The school is new and improved and the faculty are always willing to go above and beyond for their students. You are definitely prepared for whatever path you choose after high school.
