Im a student and drugs run rampant in this school, BAD DRUGS. I dont do any of the drugs but anyone who attends knows all about these things and the kids that do them- which is alot by the way. Dont send your child here its terrible the teachers are rude and talk down to the children and refuse to help us learn. its a horrible school and it should show that its horrible. It hides behind its new walls but what gos on within is horrifying. Worst 4 years of my life #dontmissit #sorrynotsorry

My school is such an excellent place to learn! Everyone there is so nice and teachers are really friendly. The education is absolutely wonderful. No there is no longer a serious drug problem trust us students. Everyone is kind of a big family. You don't have to be in aclub or sport to be accepted its your class in general. Send your children here if you want them to have a good high school experience, where they can learn so much. You'll love this school.

I didn't like my experience here. I went to this school for my sophomore year, and I'm relieved to have transferred out. I found many of the teachers here to be very hostile and disrespectful towards me just because of my goth clothing. (Oh, the irony! given that the school has posters on the walls of classrooms picturing a boy with a purple Mohawk stating 'except difference') On my very first day of school my dad received a call from a teacher complaining about my clothes. Merely a black shirt, skirt and some purple eye makeup, no dress code violation. I could just go on and on from there about that.(I'd also like to say that I did have a few teachers that were friendly and open-minded) But, I feel that's important to know if you or your child have an alternative style. I'd also like to say that the Special Education department is horrible. Because of my mental health problems I was placed in this 'Academic support class' automatically. Maybe it was just my experience but, I feel that unless you have a severe developmental disability, such as autism. You will be treated like just a 'lazy kid'. My teacher just seemed so angry all the time. It really wasn't helpful or supportive.

I'm a student at Minnechaug and from what I hear, it is one of the best schools in the area. Almost all of the teachers are great, and the assistant principals are amazing. You don't see much of the principal though, only at assemblies. And drugs are there, like at any other school, but are really not an issue on school grounds. The few people I know that tried smoking in the bathroom were caught and suspended, so they are strict about it. Extracurriclar activities are also MORE than reccomended at chaug, and there is a lot of school spirit. It is a really nice school to go to.

Minnechaug is an O K school for students. it has a good administrative staff. the assisant principals are always available, but you never really see the real principal except at assemblies. the drug situation isnt as bad as believed. we do have a problem here with drugs, but so doesnt every highschool in this country.

As a student at this high school, I'd like to commend Minnechaug on their great faculty and staff. The music program is outstanding, and though the english department is weak, the other departments make up for it in their strength. As to the issue of drugs - I'm afraid that the previous review was sadly a falsity. Wilbraham is not a lower-class area - in fact, Wilbraham and its neighboring town of Hampden (both towns' teenagers attend Chaug) are upper middle-class. Drugs? No more than any other high school, and certainly much less than other high schools in the area. I'm afraid that unless you attend a private, perhaps even religiously-affiliated school, you won't get away from drugs - and maybe not even then will they be completely out of every life of every student on campus. However, Minnechaug makes drug use a serious issue.

I was a student at Minnechaug from 1973-1977, and I also have a daughter who now attends this high school. She is in her sophmore year. Although there were many good teacher, there were also many who were bad. Drugs run rampant in this high school, and little done to stop it, by either parents or faculty. These children all come from upperclass families, so it has little to do with economics, and everything to do with lack of discipline and structure.

Minnechaug is probably one of the best high schools around for educational and athletic experiences.
