My experience at this school has been good. There are obviously bad days, average days, and great days. The classes here are decent, and definitely better compared to other schools. School life is very structured and organized. The faculty promotes progressive messages related to anti-racism and anti-bullying. The school also does a good job of addressing issues when they arise, which I was able to view through the recent race issues that our school has been happening. This school also offers a fantastic opportunity to travel for students to really diversify and broaden their horizons.

While at Boston Collegiate, I did not feel like I had the best high school experience. Athletics were the least of their priorities which was sad considering how good some of our athletes were. While the academics were strong, it seemed like that was the only thing that mattered to the administration. They did not care much about certain students and were only truly there for those who would be applying to and attending top ranked schools. If you were an athlete, the chances of you getting recruited were extremely low. This is because most of the coaches didn't have much experience in the sport they were coaching. The athletic budget was pretty much inexistent making it hard for teams to compete at a high level. Very diverse school which is expected for an urban school. If the school could divert their focus off of solely being a strong academic school, it could have the potential of being a great place to send children from the Boston area to learn and grow into adults.
It’s a great school to help you prepare for college. The school tries to do its best to give the students all the support they need. As well as trying to make all the students feel included and are able to express themselves. College administrators are great people to talk to if you are having any trouble with college, whether it’s not knowing what you want to do or if you aren’t interested in college.
