I really like how billerica public schools hires the best teachers possible. All of my teachers are extremely nice, smart, and are good at teaching, which is the most important thing. I think anyone looking to move somewhere with good education should consider moving to Billerica MA as there is also a new high school being built right now.

Overall my experience with Billerica Public Schools has been okay, but not great. Especially in high school, the freedom and respect we are given is something that I know many high school students do not get. Also, they try to accommodate students wants and needs. What I would like to see change is, some of the teachers are not flexible or respectful towards most students, although most are extremely helpful, respectful, and they honestly care about their students.
Growing up in Billerica school systems, I've learned that some teachers are here for the students and some are here because this is the path they chose for life and they can't change that. Although I have had may great teachers who not only teach but share their life experiences with me, allowing me to grow and understand from them. Billerica will always be my home and where I came from, so be from Billerica not in spite but in honor.
