If your kids are average or have special needs, this is a great school. But, if your kids are advanced, there is little offered until 11th grade when AP classes hit. But, the district has succeeded in dumb"ing those down too by offering AP classes to anyone who wants to take them.

Our two girls are presently at the high school and, overall, we have been very pleased with their experience. On the plus side, the school offers a nurturing environment, a strong menu of academic options, including plenty of honors/AP courses, amazingly rich arts / music programs, strong athletics for those so inclined, and a diverse student community. MHS sends plenty of students to the very best universities in the country without feeling like a finishing school for snobs. There is plenty of competition (a lot of it driven by parents, of course!), but our daughters (both very good students) have never felt like they inhabit a highly pressurized environment. They've had a terrific time. On the negative side, some of their teachers have been uninspiring, although those are in the minority, and the college guidance counselors are mediocre. In summary, we have been very happy with our girls' experience at MHS, and we have unhesitatingly recommended it to friends.

I have two children in the high school and I have been very impressed with the depth of breadth of their education. Classes have been challenging and teachers available for extra help. The variety of clubs is second to none and my kids have been able to find their passions in very different places. They have loved the diversity, and enjoyed making a variety of friends. I feel that MHS is providing them with an education that will help them function well in today's world.

I currently have four children at Mamaroneck High School. They all love it and are thriving. They are very different kids and MHS does a great job of meeting all of their various needs...ranging from great sports, to lots of AP classes, to extra academic support. The diversity of the student body and the respect they show each other is extraordinary. If you want to raise a well educated, independent and compassionate student who can go out and navigate the world, MHS is the place for that student.

Mamaroneck High: I would not recommend for international transfer students since the counselors are not prepared to deal with a different level of students. They do not know how to interpret transcripts from other countries, strange for a place like Larchmont, and Mamaroneck since there are many relocated families from all over the world. No entry tests were given to my child, and we had to constantly try and get higher level classes, the AP classes seem to be "reserved" for the kids, who know how to use the system. The school is very big and not much individual attention is given, after school help with the teachers is too crowded. The level of teaching depends if you are taking an Honors or AP course, the rest are average. The college entrance process is difficult to understand for international students and no help is given for this either, I have no idea why they do not one counselor who can work with these students, especially those transferring in their junior year and need extra attention for college admissions. Would recommend Harrison since it now has an IB program and is smaller.

I have three children at Mamaroneck High School and they are all thriving in their own way. The school celebrates all types of diversity and allows kids to really find their place. From athletics to special education to theatre to original science research....it is all there. I would highly recommend it!

After sending three children to this school, we couldn't be happier. The faculty is truly talented and committed to teaching every child. If there were "weaker links" on the faculty a number of years ago, they are long gone. This is a strong staff. What makes this school truly stand out is the respect students have for each other, reflected from the principal on down. This is an accepting place of any and all kinds of kids. You walk through the halls and talk to kids, and they are happy and involved.

The teachers and staff are highly qualified. MHS offers a fencing team that has been a very positive influence on my boys.

Not what it used to be! Caliber of the faculty has diminished. Extremely confrontational leadership. Incompetent faculty guidance.

Mamaroneck is a phenomenal school, with great programs for high achieving students, at-risk students, and wonderful visual and performing arts programs. It's pretty much the best.

My daughter recently graduated from Mamaroneck HS. She is bright but has ADHD so her grades were mixed. The school is quite large so it is easy for kids in the 'middle' to get lost in the mix. However, the four-year Performing Arts Curriculum Experience (PACE) at the school was a fabulous experience and truly kept her fully engaged for four years. Without it, getting her to go to school would have been a struggle. One of the best things about the school is that kids from all different cliques respected each other and coexisted very well. I never heard of fights or other trouble or tension in any of the four years. Despite average grades, she was accepted into many very good schools in the midwest and even received scholarships. I would recommend the school, expecially if you have a child intereseted in performing arts.

If your child is a super star, or if he needs support, this school is for you! Lots of AP classes and a faculty devoted to the best and the brightest. If you have an average, well rounded student...beware! He is likely to fall between the cracks! Be a presence...squeaky wheel gets the grease here.

My daughter graduated from Mamaroneck High School in 2005. We were delighted with the quality of her education and believe she was given excellent tools to prepare her for her transition to college. Throughout her years at Mamaroneck High School, all parent/teacher activities which we attended were 'standing room only'. There was always an open dialogue to discuss our daughter's needs as she was progressing through her course load. The level of academic programs was both challenging and interesting as Mamaroneck offers a wide variety of AP classes in all areas of education. Our child happened to be very interested in language and art and was able to learn both Spanish and Italian while taking AP classes in other subjects as well. Her success at Syracuse University can be attributed to her hard work and to the dedicated teachers,and faculty along with high level quality of students and parental involvement.

Beautiful high school in community with both extremely wealthy and lower middle class contingent.

While there are a number of quality teachers at the school, there are also a number of poor teachers who are so entrenched that they are hard to avoid, especially for students on an honors track. The high school suffers from an oversensitivty to political correctness that jeopardizes the educational value of extracurricular activities that comes down from the superintendent to the principal. At times, this has reached disturbing levels where both have refused to meet with parents. The school has a tremendous campus with a top-notch performing arts program (at least for public schools). It also has a comprehensive sports program that is on-the-whole well funded, as well as numerous clubs with varying levels of independence (extensive school oversight has led to the illegitimate disbanding of at least one club). Many graduates go on to high-level colleges, including a disproportionately high representation in the Ivy league.

Mamaroneck High School is a great school. It provides a high level of education for the students in a safe environment while allowing them the freedom to be their 'own person'. The variety of classes offered is great and the drama program is the best I've ever seen. I give this school two thumbs up!
