Menlo School Ratings & Reviews

September 19, 2019 Submitted by a student
"Going to Menlo was the worst decision that I have made up to this point in my young life. At least 80% of the incoming freshmen are bound for Ivy League or similar schools before they get to Menlo. If every Menlo student attended public school, the majority of them would be able to get into Ivys, Stanford, MIT or at least one comparable school. Don't let yourself be fooled by Menlo's impressive college matriculation lists. The reality is that if those same students never went to Menlo, almost every single one of them would have gone to more prestigious colleges, or at least had more options. The problem is that Menlo's student body is too smart and too hard working and academically competitive. This sounds like a great thing; there's no question that it's a school administrator's dream. What makes it negative is a combination of that incredible level of competitiveness and RIDICULOUS PRESSURE to succeed academically. The other problem is something that we call ""grade deflation."" The term isn't very accurate, but the reality it reflects is a situation in which there are too many brilliant students at one school and they can't all get As. Other schools, like a certain rival school across the street, ignore this and simply give every student good grades. Menlo's grading policies are putting its students at a significant disadvantage compared to their peer schools. I'm happy at the college I ended up at but I know how much my options were limited by my time at Menlo.To be fair to Menlo, the teachers are incredible and the school does a good job of preparing kids for college. It's just that, in preparing kids with incredible academic rigor, Menlo significantly limits their options for colleges. Menlo's administration is toxic and a few key members refuse to accept the possibility that any of these limitations could exist. Also, the dean of students is just the biggest dick in the world. How hard is it to act like a normal human being sometimes, man?I hope that just one young student or parent reads this and gives some serious consideration to just going to a different school. I went to public school until high school, there really is nothing wrong with it."

Been great so far. They are thinking ahead. I like that they don't shy away from difficult conversations with the kids. Middle school years are difficult to navigate and so far we have had a great partnership with Menlo and the teachers. It is definitely a challenging school that asks a lot of its students.

I enjoyed my experience at the school, however I completely disagree with where the schools mission and direction are headed.
