This school is lacking in diversity and it is as if it is in it's own little bubble. Much of this is due to the fact that it is in a very white part of the country, as is the rest of the state (Vermont). Although the students attending the school are exposed to people of many different economic statuses while they are all in one place together, that is about as far as the diversity and exposure to it goes. This is crazy, seeing that Bennington, Vermont is one of the most socioeconomically diverse small towns that one could visit. The school and the teachers could do a much better job of helping students understand the people around them that come from different backgrounds, and since there is not the adequate racial diversity to help expand this knowledge, they might as well use the difference in social classes between people in the town.

I loved being at MAU. The teachers were extremely friendly and always understood when something personal came up, leading to you needing extra help or an extension on an assignment. During my time at MAU, there were certain teachers that I connected with better than the other. Just because I didn't connect with them doesn't mean I hated the classes or teachers, just each student truly connects with 1-3 teachers at MAU. I think that is a good thing to have at a school though because when you're having a bad day, there is always that one teacher you just want to talk to about it.
I had a good high school experience and I liked most of my teachers and they were always very helpful. I made lots of friends, attended school functions, games and fundraisers and participated in soccer, nordic skiing and lacrosse.
