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.

After hurricane Maria I moved to Methuen and begin studying at Methuen High School in December 2017. Even though I had to move to another country, this experience has been amazing. I have successfully adapted to a new culture, language and school. I love everything about the school including the teachers who teach really well. They had helped me whenever I have questions or any doubt. Also the students because they are friendly towards me. I always had the dream to study in the United States, and it became real. I will always be thankful for the kindness of the Methuen High School staff.
Transferred here from area private school and loved it so much more at MHS. Got into the same (or better) colleges than peers at private school. Honors and AP classes are 100% worth it. Entered college with one semester worth of college credit because of AP credit earned at MHS!
