    "In Menlo-Atherton, I liked the diversity that is seen throughout the school. It is still a bit segregated. It is rare to see races mix throughout campus, but other than that M-A is seen as one of the schools with most diversities. I also like how it offers many support systems for students with low income and those who struggle speaking English. M-A offers many ways to support students with academics and extracurricular. I also enjoy how my school offers many clubs for students and offers the opportunity to create new ones even though there are hundreds of clubs existing already. One thing M-A can work on is encouraging students to join advanced classes so they won't be as segregated. Rigorous courses are very segregated and as a latina student being enrolled in advanced classes was very difficult as I felt left out because there were many students who felt superior from us. Other than that Menlo-Atherton is a very good school and I am glad to be a bear."

    "Menlo-Atherton High School is a very good high school if you are coming from a good place - either a good middle school education or high school if you are transferring. While MA prides itself on it's slogan "Strength in Diversity" the school is visually segregated, not only during social hours but also in classrooms. While MA has exceptional academic resources and did a great job preparing me and many of my peers for college, if you don't already show great potential/aren't already on a track to success, the school tends to neglect you. In the past the school has been unsuccessful in its attempts to integrate academics, forcing students who are unprepared for the level of rigor into AP classes which results in a watered down class for kids looking for a challenge and a class that sets up unprepared students for failure. All this said, MA is still a great school as far as high schools go- good extracurricular programs and a progressive campus culture."

    "I have two kids who are currently attending Menlo-Atherton High School and both have had very good experiences. The teachers are a little hit and miss freshman year, but seem to get better overall each year afterwards. Both of my kids have had at least 2 teachers each year that they have really loved and have good relationships with. The guidance counselor we have at MA (they are assigned alphabetically by last name) is excellent which has made my older child's junior year go really well. The new facilities are beautiful, and the sports and arts programs are really good. Overall, we are very pleased with the school."

    "Menlo-Atherton High School is a great choice because it prepares its students well for college and has a lot of culture and diversity that shapes students into people who are ready to give back to the community."
