Muhlenberg High School Reviews

Looking back as a vegetarian, the options for students that did not want the main course or the alternative lunch had very little alternative options. With pizza and buttered noodles twice a week, no wonder our children are getting diabetes. And that's not to say about those that got an extra helping of pizza or noodles! When Obama got elected into office I started to realize the change in our school lunches; students had to start to take two servings of fruit and a vegetable with every meal. Soon, pizza began to be served with kale chips instead of noodles and students were furious. I think it would be important to educate kids about healthy eating patterns to a fuller extent, seeing as though Muhlenberg did not have proper dietary education services.
Review Muhlenberg High School
I absolutely love Muhlenberg, my experience for the past 4 years going onto my fifth has been nothing but superlative. The students that go here are highly accepting and very easy to get along with. Yes, there may be some scandalmongers that linger through the school but, overall eveything is just amazing. The teachers at the middle school for my three year education were just amazing and so comforting to talk to. My high school experience by far is just nothing but fantastic.
I would reccomend this school to anyone who just wants to be accepted and wants to feel safe. (LGBT+ students are safe here as well)
Especially in the middle school. Both the High school and Middle school have LGBTQ Acceptance clubs.
I wouldn't say that this school is exceptional in any one category, but it's not necessarily sub par either; it's interesting if anything. Think of it as a complementary airplane snack-- it's nothing special, but since you're hungry, it's pretty satisfying. This is one of the better schools in the area considering Reading High School is just a few stop lights away. One thing that is commendable is how spoiled the students are. They are given quite a few freedoms as well as fun events to enjoy during ans after school hours. Also, a vast majority of the kids are great. There's no doubt that one day a lot of them will be out doing things that will make a huge difference in the world. And that's a fact.
