Dear Methuen High School Community:


The snow is melting and spring is here (No more snow please!). April brings the start to fourth quarter, the spring sports season, and a continued focus on students’ academic goals. I am proud of the effort grade ten students exhibited when recently completing the MCAS ELA test. Grade ten students continue to prepare for the MCAS Mathematics test scheduled for mid-May. Also in May, over six hundred AP exams will be administered to students in grades ten through twelve. Teachers at MHS continue to provide high-quality instruction in every discipline with the goal of preparing all students for postsecondary success.
