Today there were a number of horrible and disgusting posts made on social media about our students at Malden High School. These comments have no place in our city as we have always stood up to any form of hatred, bigotry or intolerance. Malden High School is the most diverse high school in Massachusetts for a reason. We are proud of the safe and welcoming environment our students and staff have created. We consider our diversity a strength because it does not point out our differences but rather celebrates our unity and these vile words will only serve to strengthen that resolve.
Gary Christenson, Mayor of Malden
