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!

Very high academic standards. Great division one high school for sports with this year winning football, volleyball track and basketball titles. Very diverse student population. Building could use updates!
I love AB. It's competitive, and there's tons of smart students, but I feel it has prepared me better for life and further education extremely well. If you're considering sending your kid here, know that they will almost certainly go to a 'worse' college than they would at a more average school, and that they will 100% be made to feel stupid at times, but that in the end, they will be a much stronger student than they would otherwise. AB deflates your grades and self-image in high school so that you can succeed in college.
