Mt. Anthony Union High School Reviews
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.
if you want your kid to be relentlessly bullied and the staff to do nothing to help you, send your kid here! bonus: the staff will bully them too.
The teachers are awesome. I love how they always greet students in the hallways and such. It makes you feel welcome and a part of the community. The counsellors of the school were my favourite part. They were very supportive and helpful. My counsellor made sure I got the right classes to graduate with all my required credits and that I was comfortable with.
Mount Anthony does not support or prepare its students for life after high school. The administration is not able to control the students and is unable to perform their duties properly. Students are not taught skills they will need to know in life, and are not encouraged to stay in school; in some cases encouraged to drop out by administration. There are some very supportive and well learned faculty members at the school who provide an excellent education, but there are also some teachers who are not as concerned with teaching. There is an atmosphere of animosity between the students and administration such as the cancellation of school dances on grounds of incessant twerking epidemics when this was not the case. I have found that Mount Anthony is considered the laughing-stock of high schools in Vermont in both quality of education and the overall character of students. I wish I had the opportunity to attend another high school in Vermont as my time at Mount Anthony was not pleasant.
I am involved with the dance team at my school and it has truly helped me gain confidence in myself as well as others. Our wresting team is a big thing in our school as it does the best out of all the sports we possess. Most popular sports I would say are wrestling and our basketball or soccer teams. Our administration are great and reliable. There is many after school activities to choose from as there is Red Cross, Wellness Club and much more including sports and after school tutor help in the library every day. I do Wellness Club and we raise awareness of illness, sexual orientation and much more. We also have a Relay for Life Team that I was proud to say that I was on. Overall my school has many great activities in and out of school that helps make for good friends and good stories to tell to your grandchildren one day. This school does nothing, but amaze me in what they have to offer because they have a little bit of something for everyone.
I have really great teachers who go above and beyond to help me further my education.
There are quite a few extracurricular activities,But I feel that some students would not participate in them due to being picked on. They say its open to every one but I don't believe the students will welcome another that is not of their same stature .
Not enough parents are involved in the school athletics or other events, its mainley the same parents that go to the events of their children everytime. I dont think students get enough support from their parents when it comes to school
There are not enough teachers that will offer extra help, and when they do the student sometimes does not even feel comfortable asking for the help because of his or her facial expression/body language. But then you have the other teachers that go above and beyond those ones are very special.
There is a multitude of athletics,clubs and activities that appeal to most all the student population
Most of the teachers work very hard and enjoy their work. They go the extra mile to help students succeed and support students having difficulties inside and outside the classroom. As in most schools, there are a few teachers who don't put in as much effort or interest in their work and it shows. Students are pretty aware of who they are (as are parents).
Many of the teachers are excellent. I believe there is not alot of support from the community, local, state and national government for teachers to adequately maintain control in some classrooms. Fear of legal ramifications of keeping students in line adversely impacts learning in some classes. I don't believe this is unique to our school.
not a lot of parent involvement
The school is average. Most o the students have grown up together and we all know each other. We do have fun activities and many sporting events. Proms and dances used to be more fun, but the administration has become stricter on the rules.
The teachers are overall helpful and good at their jobs.
There is a lot of drug issues at our school, but the police and security tend to deal with it well.
There are enough clubs and activities for one to choose from, but it would be good to have more choices.
