Boston Public Schools Reviews
First, I have been in Boston Public Schools since kindergarten, at the George H Conley. Even still now, I love that school! It is one of the best elementary schools in Boston. The teachers and faculty were great. I also went to the Bates and BLA; both great schools. The Bates was a very friendly school that cares about all the students and the parents were actively involved. The Advanced 4th and 5th-grade class prepared me for the ISEE. The exam schools are all top-tier and prepare the students well for college. Aside from those schools, the other BPS schools could be better in terms of college prep and allocating resources fairly and efficiently. However, BPS has pretty well running system.
Ive been through in the Boston public school system since my kinder garden years. I believe that this district has very much helped me get to where I am today. There is a resource for everything music, theatre, visual arts. The academics are the best in any other school system across the united states. The administration is very much concerned with the safety of their students. drills are done regularly ( fire, safety). I would most definitely put my children through this school system. My criticism would be more funding towards arts inclusion , yes there are arts in the system ( and for introductory level kids these arts classes and such are good ) but only a few institutions pride themselves in the arts
Boston Latin School, a BPS school has great reputation and academic standing. It is however, highly competitive and homework is likely to dominate your life. There are more than enough extracurricular opportunities such as clubs, sports and the arts, which all have devoted staff and plentiful resources. The school name opens doors but you definitely have to work for it. Like most schools, there are some amazing teachers and some less than so. Although it may be an unhealthy environment for those prone to anxiety or stress, overall it is a great opportunity and experience, and you will learn a lot from your time there!
