Montville High School is a great school. The academics are outstanding. There are many classes that are college level and you get college credits for them. The sports are fantastic! There are many awards for all the different sports. The teachers are very willing to help whenever needed. There is something for everyone. Many clubs, sports , drama, music, chorus, and other clubs. The principal, vice- principal, councilors and teachers are always willing to help if there is a problem. I feel very safe at Montville High. We have a resource officer that is there everyday all day. The food is not the best. I bring my lunch everyday.

I’ve been told that the student in Montville High School are friendlier towards each other compared to other High schools and that’s pretty accurate, I guess. There’s a number of teachers in MHS that are really good at teaching, they make the learning easier. There are also teachers very passionate about their job and are also very political, which is really good. But sadly majority of the teachers are not good. Some teachers really can’t teach, I don’t know how they pass their teaching class or something. The food is terrible, and is mediocre at best. Clubs have very little funding. Plus, the WATER.
So many great teachers and great classes offering many opportunities for college credit. I graduated with 17 credits that all transferred to UCONN but there were some students that had over 30. More AP and ECE classes would always be great!
