    "Depending on the teacher you get you will either have an amazing experience, an alright one, or a completely horrible one. I will give three examples of each: I had an English teacher (took him for two different classes because I loved him so much) that was funny, engaging, and would go over all of the material needed for each book so you knew what was going on even if you didn't like English (wasn't the case for me but I still found it helpful). I had a Chemistry teacher who was alright, he couldn't speak very good English but he was very very nice, if not for the in class support teacher in the class though I would have failed. Now let's talk about the horrible... They have many horrible people working for them that should be fired and not made to work with children ever again, people who let students be picked on for no reason except for their own enjoyment. I had a math teacher for example who couldn't do math, and he has a degree in the subject. Myself and other people from his other classes would correct his calculations because he got them wrong. And when you did correct him he wouldn't care. These are his own math equations and he literally wouldn't care that he was giving out wrong answers to his students. I had him twice only because I was forced to, the second time he was supposed to do college prep and didn't. Thanks so much dude, you're the reason I'm paying $800 for Elementary Algebra in college. Should I send you the bill?"

    "This school is horrible. DO NOT send your child here if they are different. And by 'different' I mean if they don't like sports, band, or anything like that because they will be picked on mercilessly and the administration WILL DO S*** to help them. EVEN IF they do like these sorts of things they will most likely be picked on as well, because I saw it happen to kids you'd classify as 'popular'. Seriously if you can afford to send your kid somewhere else PLEASE DO. This school is THE WORST. There are drugs which the school and town is doing NOTHING to control, there's bullying, and the funding is going all to sports which is typical but still. Send your kid somewhere else PLEASE."

    "Metuchen is a great school because it has a student population that is very diverse. You have the ability to be involved in a number of clubs and sports due its student size."

    "I love the small town vibe and how you know basically everyone in the school. There is a lack of school trips provided. Battle of the Classes is the best extra-curricular offered."

    "High school is whatever you make of it. There are great opportunities and teachers but you have to take advantage of it. The school is a small but very safe environment."
