On Food: I've never purchase food from the school. For most of the students the food trucks that are parked by the school all day are better options.

On Administration & Policies: The dress code is very sexist and every year there are girls pulled out of the classroom for wearing a tank top in june. The attendance policy is fairly lenient unless you want to skip often, and then you may get in trouble very quickly.

On Extracurriculars: All the clubs are very engaging. Most meet once a week such as the Phoenix Literary Magazine, Debate Club and Cooking Club, but clubs such as SVPA the Program that puts on the theater productions meet twice a week and often more. All the clubs have a teacher advisor who are very involved and usually very supportive. The school day may end at 2:30 but the campus is crawling with people until 3:30-4:00.

On Academics: The classes are very much dependent on the quality of the teacher. Classes can be hard vet very engaging with teachers who usually teach the High Honors or AP classes. If you are not in theses classes you are kind of out of luck. The classes are then full of busy work with weak teachers.

On Educational Outcomes: Montclair High School does a good job prepping students for life after high school, however the the environment, the "bubble" that is Montclair is very safe, very supportive, but some kids may find themselves sheltered.
