    Overall Experience: Malden High is great in so that it is a very diverse school. As a public high school there are many great opportunities, but the big problem is trying to seek out for those opportunities. Although they try and do a good job at promoting the offers and opportunities, not many students take their time to look into them. Also, the staff and faculty are great. They challenge and push students to their limit in order to help them strive.

    Overall Experience: Diverse and large student body who dedicated to obtaining a great education. All the teacher are passionate and love their jobs, especially the principle. The student all care about one another where they come together when a tragic event occurs, basically this school is a family.
