Acton-Boxborough Regional School District Reviews

As a current Acton-Boxborough Regional High School, I believe that my experience was very good. The school has a lot to offer in very different areas. The academics are excellent and they're always looking to further students' knowledge, the teachers are great and qualified, there are many clubs and sports and a variety of activities offered and the administration is always ready to help. They are a great school for preparing students for college. They start preparing students the moment they start their freshman year, with the classes they take and by constantly helping students excel the best they possibly can. Overall, it's a great school and I had a wonderful high school experience!

The school district has great teachers but a poor social and academic environment. The environment is very exclusive, competitive, and overly focused on academics to the point where students mental health is compromised. There have been recent incidences regarding students and their identity, specifically racial, that have been concerning. Instances in the past regarding mental health has also been troubling. I know that the counseling staff is doing their best to support their students, but the culture as a whole is in need of change. There are great teachers and academic opportunities at AB, however, for many, it is difficult to feel at home, encouraged, and safe within the greater school community.
Overall, I think Acton-Boxborough is a great high school. The academic prestige and extracurricular opportunities were great. This is very apparent when comparing myself with other students enetering college. I felt incredibly prepared throughout my freshman year; not only in terms of knowledge and time management, but also socially. My only complaint about AB is that they might put too much emphasis on academics, which creates a very competitive environment. This type of culture and atmosphere is not conducive to learning and can be quite difficult for some to navigate.
