Assabet Valley is a vocational school, So as a student I spend half of the school year focusing on a trade and the other half focusing on academics. Going to a tech school is overall an amazing experience because so many doors can open up during and after high school whether it be for sports, careers, colleges, even having just extra knowledge to be able to change a tire or color someone’s hair. Not only does the school offer a trade but we have some of the best sports teams,clubs, and classes to offer as well. Everyone that makes the choice to come to Assabet is guaranteed to find something right for them. The school is filled with the most kind hearted and understanding people. Each and every person working in the school is supportive and wants their students to succeed. Assabet is a 100% positive environment all the time. Everyone wants one another to succeed and everyone helps make the school a great place to be!

Making the decision to come to Assabet was the best decision I could have made for myself. I struggled a lot in my descending town's school district and it felt like I could start over and be myself here. Being able to learn not only the same academics as regular public schools but also being able to learn a trade on top of all of that was so exciting. This school has definitely made high school the best years of my life! I have no complaints about Assabet. The administration and teachers do an amazing job to make sure all the students feel wanted and safe. You can tell that they share such a love for the school and their main goal is to see their students succeed!
My experience with Assabet Valley was great! I always enjoyed the school's way of adapting to your individual learning style. The teachers and staff were always really caring and wanted to see you succeed. Overall, I enjoyed my experience learning there and would do it all over again.
