Acton-Boxborough Regional School District Reviews

It's one of the best public schools in the state, and it's easy to see why. The staff are fantastic! I always felt as if my teachers were really listening to me. One of the downsides of going to a nice school, though, is how intensive the workload can be. Students often come in like zombies from staying up until the wee hours of the night to finish anything, and even though they are stressed, dropping down a level is often seen as something shameful or weak, despite it being good for their mental health.

The student body is diverse by the numbers, but students often group with people of their minority background: all the LGBT kids together, all the Asian kids together, etc. I think this may be due to shared interests among these groups rather than any actual bias, and it's not rare to see students of colour and white students chatting together. There are very few black and latinx students, though, which is a bit of a problem.

There are certain aspects about AB that I love, and other aspects that I hate, and there's nothing really in between. I've had several teachers who have really taught me a lot, who I still remain in contact with. I've also had several teachers who I really did not like at all who didn't teach much at all.
The atmosphere at AB is full of constant pressure in competition; competition in academics, sports, social life, etc. In the end, I can't wait to get out of this school, but I will stay in contact with a few friends and past teachers.
Teachers are good, academics are good. Overall an OK experience. The administration sometimes has difficulty communicating with the students and a lot of concerns remain unanswered. As a senior who has been attending for four years now, I had only seen the previous principal, who had been at AB for three of my four years, only once in person. She was rarely ever seen. The current principal is fine. If you want to get into a good school and prepared to go to college, come to AB.
