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

40 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.

Although the school lacks diversity and a strong social/school culture, it definitely prepares you for college and the real world. You're surrounded by individuals who are very focused and motivated, which definitely pushes you to new limits.
This school definitely prepared me for college but I do wish I had more fun during my high school years. It's all stress and competition. That said, I probably would've still chosen this school looking back on the decision because it was most likely the best option in expenses and safety.
