For a large public school, Cambridge Rindge and Latin is excellent. There are not many areas in which the school is lacking, except maybe the honors classes system. The absolute BEST part of the school is the lunch: gourmet, wide variety of options, huge portions and reasonable prices, it doesn't get much better than that! Overall I would give CRLS a 95/100.

College Readiness and Administration should be a lot better. My first year (CRLS) was good, but my years there were boring and it felt dragging. My senior year wasn’t best because of the college readiness, it was 2x more of the pressure then my past years. Wasn’t a year to remember due to struggles and extra work load. I only got accepted to one school, although I couldn’t afford it, so I was forced to take a gap year. However, the facilities are nice because they recently made it new & renovated. The atmosphere can get toxic but that’s every high school. Safety is a little concerning sometimes. School culture is poor, doesn’t feel like an upbeat school even if we try to.
Cambridge is very fortune to support many school programs specifically in the arts department and academics. However, you must be invested in finding the right activates for you because these opportunities aren't widely known. Although having a highly diverse population of students that tend to typically respect and support each other, the school staff lacks to acknowledge the causal racism within their colleagues.
