The Michael J. Petrides School Reviews

73 reviews

I've been a student at Petrides since Kindergarten, and I'm happy to say that being a part of Petrides all these years was the best decision for me. Petrides has given me so many opportunities that I will forever be grateful for. Getting involved at Petrides is the best part because it's honestly quite easy to gain leadership positions for activities and things that you are ambitious about. I've gained such great friendships and memories at Petrides, that I will cherish all my life. The only thing about Petrides that I dislike is the academics. Academics are not rigorous and most AP teachers don't care if you pass their AP exam or not! With the new PROSE program, sure OAT is fun and all, but high school at Petrides has literally become a joke for many students. Overall though, I definitely love Petrides, and if you're a hard-working kid who wants to have fun, Petrides is the place for you!

I have been at the Michael J. Petrides School since I was 6 years old and it has been a wonderful experience. Majority of the teachers at Petrides really take the time to understand and connect with the students. Our principal has recently implemented the PROSE project on high school students so that we get the college experience. I have to say, Petrides cares a lot about the future of every student because our college adviser goes through all the steps into college and career searching. Our school lacks respect in regards to facilities and peers sometimes. I think that the high school aspect of Petrides can improve, there should be consequences for bad actions and suspending a kid is not always the answer to a problem that occurs many times. Overall, Petrides is a school that has positive feelings to it, the campus is beautiful and welcoming, especially during the spring. Sports are highly encouraged here and it is a place to have fun while you are learning.
There are advantages and disadvantages to this school being a K-12 school. The advantage is that once you get in, you have not worried about having to switch schools going from Elementary-Middle, or Middle-High School. Being a K-12 school is also a disadvantage, because the older kids are usually mixing with the little ones in hallways. Something Petrides should do is designate certain buildings, or certain floors for each grade so that they do not run into others older or younger than them. Lastly, Petrides needs to stop accepting in kids that were expelled/suspended from other schools. That adds a terrible reputation to the school.
