    Overall Experience: My experience at this school has been a great one, thanks to the teachers and the student body overall. One thing that makes my school different from others is a class called American/Global studies. It is a class of english, social studies, art, and music. The purpose of this course is to further connect the students to the world through all aspects of each country we study. And create our own opinions not clouded by what the standard American books say happened in history. i would choose this school again for its amazing curriculums, teachers and clubs.

    Overall Experience: I currently have a 12th and 10th grader attending MHS. My boys have been able to choose classes with full support of staff. My boys have had ability to be in honors and AP classes which has helped them advance.

    Overall Experience: Muhlenberg high school allows students to get involved in all aspects, whether it's academically, through arts/ music, or even physically there's a place for the students to meet new people. Muhlenberg has several teachers who want to see their students succeed and are willing to help in any way needed. The downfall is their are many judgmental people in the school who make it hard for some to show their individuality. Overall Muhlenberg high school is a great school.

    Overall Experience: Muhlenberg is a great school when it comes to academic push, the teachers try to help the students succeed. Unlike most schools they have developed a third period "Muhl time" for all students iif your grades are good you can enjoy that period playing basketball, in the art room, socializing, ect and if not it is mandatory for you to go to the classes you are failing that period. Another great thing about Muhlenberg is the many clubs, sports, and activities to join. Although I don't condone bullying, assumptions, and judgmental people it happens at every high school so, therefore I would attend this school over again if I could.
