Maple Shade High School may be a small school, but it a small school with a big heart. The teachers, administration and support staff are genuinely caring and dedicated to the students, school and community. I have children that have already graduated and one that is a senior this year. My graduates have gone on to college and felt fully prepared. My senior also shares this sentiment with being offered Honors classes and CAP classes. She will graduate MSHS with 15 college credits from BCC. Many larger/regional high schools focus on children who are their star athletes or top 10% of their class leaving other students feeling lost or left out. My children were always given an opportunity to play a sport and be a part of the team, where at other larger school they would never of had the same opportunity. GREAT JOB Teachers, Staff and Administration!!

Remind me again why I'm paying this much taxes to live in a town whose public schools are rated only slightly above Philadelphia's?

I graduated from Maple Shade High School in 2006 and I really enjoyed my experience at the school.The teachers were friendly and helpful. The average graduating class in the school is anywhere from 150-200 people. If you enjoy living in a small town, Maple Shade is definitely a good place.

I think the principal in the High School Mr.Arnaur is excellent my daughter had in as a principal about 3 years ago while in 4th grade..He is caring and enjoys teaching the children, I've never met a principal like this...

The new principals and administrators are excellent. They are caring and always looking for new and exciting ways to motivate our students. As parents, we need to remind ourselves that we must take an active approach in our children, schools and community. I have worked in education for many years in some of the 'best' school districts, many of your concerns are happening in these districts as well. These school districts quietly take clean up their dirt while accentuating their merits.

This school has its positives and negatives as any school does. It has many hard working teachers and administrators. Its student body is made of many hard working serious students that take pride in their school, athletics and community. As with all things, what you put into it you will get out of it.

I am a parent of a student at MSHS. Unfortunately, there seems to be a growing problem at the school which is very evident if you attend any functions outside the normal school day. Many teachers at this school are more concerned about being the students friends rather than being mentors. My student advised me that this was a problem two years ago and I didnt grasp the severity of it until she opened my eyes to it. Thankfully, I will not have to worry about it after this year but if you send you child to this school, pay close attention and you may not like what you see.

I am a student at maple shade, this past year many students are upset over how things are ran. Overall i believe this school is very unorganized. We also arent very exceptive of new students, i think you should think hard before you send your child here.

This is a wonderful small community school. The administrators are progressive and supportive. The new high school principal generates excitement in both the staff and students to strive for high levels of learning.

This school is ok you can say, but there are teachers that just don't care. I am a sophmore in this school. Most of the teachers are ok but overall this school is nothing special and it is at your own risk sending your child here. They probably won't recieve the right education that they need and deserve.

I'm a student at this high school, and I'm not completely statisfied with the education I receive. Some teachers actually try to teach, while others just let you try to teach yourself. Also, I was a student at Lenape High School my freshman year, then transferred to Maple Shade. I was learning basically the same thing my Sophmore year in Maple Shade as my freshman year in Lenape.

There are some great teachers who actually care but there are others who don't care. if you're going to send your child here I wish you good luck. I just wish there was more things for the kids to do.
