The new principal is a fresh of breath air. At the open house, she asked for feedback and actually implemented our ideas! I love the expanded options for foreign language and tech ed. They still have discipline problems, but they continue to address them. My one complaint: the "Student of the Month" always features "improved" students, meaning that if you've always behaved yourself and always acted responsibly you'll never receive recognition.

this school straight up is awful. the people that go there live for DRAMA. if there isnt any somebody starts some imeadatly. do not send your child here. they will be harshly critizized. a girl left the school after her 2nd day because she was critized. most of the teachers do a very poor job of teaching. Only a few do a excellent job. Need help with homework you can ask but they hardly explain it. Some of the male teachers are very perverted. This school is a shame to society. The only way somebody will get by at this school is if you are overly pretty and rich. The principal hardly does any work sits around all day long and is only concerned about the needs of teachers. The math curriculum is at the level of a college student,the math teachers do not help you at all.

I am not happy with this school, and I am writing a review online as a concerned parent. Staff leadership is unsatisfactory.

I love the Maplewood staff, they are fun, talented and motivated. There are high standards for student behavior - kids are well behaved in classes and in the halls and feel safe and respected by staff and students. There's a nice mix of academic rigor interspersed with periodic fun activities throughout the year. The school offers a wide range of extra-curricular activities. It s my child s first year attending and she loves it!
