Middlesex County Academy for Science, Mathematics, & Engineering Technologies Reviews

33 reviews
All Categories
The Middlesex County Academy for Science, Mathematics, and Engineering Technologies is a quaint school in Edison. It's meant to be extremely rigorous and provide students with a fine education in STEM. This is wonderful in theory, but in practice it's simply one engineering elective where a student is often lectured in an environment not exactly meant to embrace learning. Most teachers are generally nice, although there are several exceptions to these rules. Most of these exceptions are terrible teachers and terrible people. There is no cafeteria in this school, so lunches have to be brought from home. There is only one sports team, which is soccer. The soccer team is the lowest ranking team in the lowest division. The school is currently unranked on US News, which makes it significantly harder to get into a good school.

Don't come here. Yes, this school is of high ranking, but you will actually destroy your chances at going somewhere amazing and having a good high school experience if you come here. Your GPA will most likely be poor, the student body is always upset, the guidance counselor has made so many mistakes with college applications. This school may seem great, but there are so many problems with it, most students regret this choice. Once you enter, you can never leave, and the administration highly discourages students from speaking out against the problems that are occurring here.
My daughter did not have a positive experience here for the most part. She gave up all arts, music, theater and sports to focus on engineering, science and math. She then received an entirely sub par education in science as her physics and chemistry classes were taught by what I can only describe as the most inefficient, incompetent educator I ever witnessed. It was awful. Her math teachers were good.
