My experience at Montclair High School was amazing, from the first day of Freshmen year to the first day of Senior Year. I loved how diverse the school was, along with the teachers. Meeting people with different backgrounds and beliefs was a great experience that I hope everyone could go through. The teachers that I've had were really good with me and my classmates. They did a good job of teaching us things that will help us out in the real world, there's nothing I would change about my teachers. Montclair High School is a really good school and I wish could share my experience at this high school with other high school students around the world.

So many choices and opportunities! I have been in the Montclair Public School system through my entire childhood and I had such a great experience. They are really focused on the achievement of their students and facilitating the best possible environment for success.

I did not enjoy my experiences in the public school system and constantly was trying to find ways to get out of the public school system. I left and went to a private school where I had a much better experience as well as a much better education where the teachers were all of a high caliber unlike in Montclair where it was pretty hit or miss. If you have the option to not be in the Montclair public school system, I highly suggest that you find a private school to be a part of. Although, if it is your only option, education is very important no matter the quality.
