  • Reviewed by Student on February 08, 2010
  • Rating: 2 (2 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • I have never been less happy in my life than when I attended Mattawan Middle School. The faculty is extremely inferior and condescending. The atmosphere is intimidating and inflexible.

    The academics and athletics were very competitive with other local schools, and the administration did make a very respectable effort to resolve any conflicts and improve the school; however, I do not feel that these factors make up for the distractions caused by the horrible environment.

    Fortunately, I feel that the other schools within the consolidated school district did a very good job.
