    "I'm a former student and also had siblings that attended M.E. All I can say is that this is a great school. AP programs are great and top notch. Theater program is great. The school even has a radio station. Facilities are great. The only thing not so great is the football and basketball team. The teachers are great and care about their students. You won't see the typical peer pressure that you see in other schools. M.E. has been malign by outsiders who know nothing about the school, claiming that there is a gang problem and drug problem. In reality, there isn't a gang problem, it's suburban gang wannabes that can be found in many suburban schools. The rumors of a drug problem is just that, rumors. The test scores are not high because there's a percentage of the student population that do not come from wealthy or middle class families that have parents that are not actively involve with their child's education but you can't blame M.E. for that. A lot of these students also work almost a full time job and that takes away from their studies. If you want a great education M.E. is the place. Don't listen to the stereotypes and rumors. Bottom line is, M.E. is a great school."

    "I love Maine East. The student body is friendly and isn't cliquey, you could talk to the person sitting next to you in class without fearing of being judged. Some teachers are horrible but there's many tutoring opportunities and make up work. It's a safe environment"
