Attending Fitchburg High School has been a great opportunity for me and it opened so many doors for me. It's been rated the #1 school in America before and they always strive for excellence. Although it's an amazing school, they should broaden their lunches and sides at lunches. They also need to find a way to deal with problem students because it's always a distraction and there isn't much they can do because of regulations but they need to ask the state what more they can do because it's effecting a lot of kids opportunities for learning.

I appreciated the accepting environment and the plethora of opportunities that were open to anyone who was willing to accept them, however, many of the students did not have high expectations for their education and that reflects in their work and what the professor expects from us.
I had a great time during my high school years at Fitchburg High. All my AP teachers were amazing, and especially my Calculus teacher, Mr. Perry! He was my favorite.
