Methacton High School8

Eagleville, PA | Montgomery County

Methacton represents everything that is wrong with public schools. I have three very intelligent children and this school has made them feel dumb and alone. We transferred here two years ago from out of state. We chose Methacton because of the great reviews, however, the reviews fail to disclose the pettiness and disrespect handed out by the administration (assistant principle specifically). I will be moving my youngest to a different school that supports and encourages all students, not just those with deep pockets.

Fantastic teachers and a welcoming learning environment easily make Methacton one of the best, if not the best school in the area. Most people have two complaints overall: the administration and the condition of the school. The administration is pitiful at best; to be honest. A new superintendent has been hired and seems to be overhauling the administration. As for the age of the school, personally it is not a major issue (Far better than Arcola). When compared to other local schools Methacton is ugly and old but the quality of education is truly the most important thing. In addition, arts, sports, and extra curricular programs are exceptional. Teachers seem to truly connect with students, which helps to improve moral especially during midterms and finals. If you are a parent and are worried about the rumors that Methacton is falling behind other schools, they are for the most part not true. State standardized test scores are far above the state average and surpass the majority of other local high schools. My advice to families moving into Methacton: enroll your children in honors classes and they will thrive. At Methacton the better teachers teach the better students.

Latest test scores are proof: This once-great district has been on a downward spiral. Not that MSD is bad, but the administration is: latest superintendent resigned amid scandal, and underlings/MHS principal are ineffective, bureaucratic and totally UNinvolved/out-of-touch with teachers, students, etc. Teachers, in my experience as a parents of 2 in district, try hard and seem to care but get little support. School board keeps hiring cronies for top level, do-little jobs and ignores the problems they KNOW are occurring. It's been this way for years and only getting worse. District needs a complete overall -- school board and administrators -- to regain its once prominent standing.

I am a former student of this high school, and i don't feel that they really cared about me or my brother. I was put in special education and as i improved i was never taken out they crippled me in a way. My brother is autistic and they did not help him at all when it came to school work or the fact that he was being bullied on a daily basis. I was the one that had to help him with the bullies and then got suspended for it. As a new mom I know that I will not be putting my child through this school district!

My 3 kids went through this district and I believe they received an excellent education. In college (and each went to prestigious schools), they were well-equipped, if not way ahead, of others. Granted, the school board is terrible and administration average at best, but most teachers seem top-notch -- dedicated, hardworking, talented and genuinely caring for their students, in and out of the classroom. Considering Methcton pays on the lower end of the pay scale compared to surrounding districts, I'm puzzled -- but appreciative -- that MSD managed to hire so many outstanding educators...esp. at the high school. Trust me, my husband/I moved a lot and our kids went through several districts before we MSD. PS. I agree with previous poster about the quality of student...many I've met are kind, polite, etc...and while my neighborhood has plenty of classy kids (and parents), I witnessed many efforts -- by individual teachers and the district, overall -- to specifically try to instill a sense of respect, kindness, tolerance and altruism in its students.

I was absolutely AMAZED at how polite, kind, and respectful the students at this school are. I am a sub. and I work in 17 different districts, and I have never had students like this before. Parents, staff and faculty, you deserve a big pat on the back for wonderful teaching and raising such an outstanding bunch of people!!! I sometimes leave schools in tears thinking about how abysmal their futures look, I left Methacton with tears of joy that there is still hope for the future!

MHS is a great school. They offer a wide variety of extracurricular activities to encourage all students to get involved. School spirit is always encouraged. They provide the perfect balance of work and play for all students. They challenge their students in the classroom but find a way to keep it interesting. For students who struggle in the classroom the teachers go out of their way to provide one on one help. Teachers make their students feel comfortable but still manage to comand their respect. I've seen Strong parent involvement in all sports, clubs and student government. My kids and I have been involved with multiple fundraisers which teaches things about life that can't be taught in a classroom. Most of the coaches insist on community service as a requirement for participating in sports. There is even an educational trip abroad offered each year to interested students. Awesome!

As an MHS student I think the school offers good extra-curricular activities. Many, many students join clubs and almost all are interesting/fun. Unfortunately, the academics are not very stressed. Most teachers do not encourage students, so (we) have to have self-motivation. In my opinion, math and science have the better teachers.

A very HIgh Quality of academic Programs. Every type of music, art sports activities that is not even funny. Parents can envolve as much as they want they can be at school every day doing different taskes or just be at the school board meetings.

My child is a senior this year and in March of 2005 we had to move our daughter to CSF. Beacuse the teachers could not be bothered to help her with her academics. The teachers were too busy with extra-curricular activities. She has made great strides at CSF. My daughter was very unhappy at Methacton.

My children have been in the Methacton district from kindergarten. We've been very pleased. Both of my children are in the gifted program. The elementary gifted program is pathetic. The children are taken out of their classes and then are responsible for the other work going on in their regular class as well. It's better in the middle school. One of the unfortunate things about our school is that they don't offer foreign language until 7th grade. The teachers are great. Fortunately, we've been very lucky. Some parents complain about teachers but in most cases I think if you take an honest look it usually is the child. Our school district has an incredible amount a parental envolvement. Very supportive community.

As a student of MHS, I would first like to say that this school is one of the best in the area. My time is taken up with several clubs, including Mock Trials and Key Club. Many of the teachers here are extremely skilled and make class fun. There are also many gifted and intelligent students here. Every year there is a play and a musical, which takes up most of one's time. So far, I haven't seen any fights this school year. Hopefully it will remain that way.

As a graduate of Methacton, I can say now that the drug problem is out of control. Teachers don't want to admit that it is there, but trust me when I tell you it is. The more money you have, the more drugs you can buy. Parents...watch your kids. Stay on top of what they do, and don't just blow it off....it's happening, trust me.

Methacton provides an above average education. A good portion of the students are extremely intelligant and of course neglected for it. Teachers can be too preoccupied with the troubled students who are getting into fights, instead of giving the bright students the best education. More recently the MHS seniors have been accepted and enrolled in selective colleges including U.Penn, Georgetown, Duke, William and Mary, no Harvard or Yale yet but its coming. The only problem I can see with the school is the same I see with the students and parents. The school is right in the middle of things, appreciating the advantage of not having to go to Norristown but still pining for big school North Penn status. Everyone is stuck and everyone wants out, but no one seems to be doing anything about it.

My child got into so many fights in this school. The school did not do anything about it. I took her right out. I think this is one of the worse schools.
