Metuchen High School Reviews
I liked the wide array of available club options and ways to get involved at Metuchen High School. There are plenty of ways to get involved from music, to sports, to theater. One problem with the school is the size. Each year the class sizes grow and there is not enough room for everyone passing in the hallways between class and in the classrooms. Some of the teachers are amazing and will truly help and encourage you while others are not the best educators and make enjoying school difficult at times.
MHS is a relatively small school, but given its size, it still has a lot to offer. There are tons of different AP and honors level courses and a good share of electives. The teachers tend to be very passionate as well and make for great classes. However, there is much room for improvement such as new clubs, more classes, promoting diversity more, etc.
The courses offered at MHS are varied, and they definitely allow students to explore any passion or interest they have. While I appreciate the school's effort to open a more encompassing Program of Studies, the faculty in some fields definitely have more experience and passion than others.
