Marlborough Public Schools Reviews
Marlborough offers a STEM Program which focuses on science, technology, engineering, and math. Through that program I got to participate in a project based learning at Raytheon for a week with real world engineers. Marlborough offers a STEM week once a year for all of the middle school grades 6th-8th. During this week all curriculum is hauled and the children construct projects and learn about STEM. Marlborough has a wide variety of sports and always has at least one team make it to playoffs within the three seasons of sports offered. The music department in the school district is very advanced and at the high school level there are three audition groups. Each group performs at MICCA a music competition in the spring and gets ranked with a bronze, silver, or gold medal. Along with MICCA, the music department participates in Florida and Washington D.C. trips. Marlborough offers over 50 school clubs for anyone and everyone. These clubs range from ping pong club to student council.
During my time in the Marlborough Public Schools system, I liked how classes and extra curricular activities where seen very eye to eye and you were always able to do both quite freely and extra curricular activities always were highly regarded. The absolute only thing they care about now is STEM programs. Classes that taught you how to manage your money or cook are all but gone now and students are forced to get into STEM whether they like it or not and increase their workload without learning any life skills. The other place that has received massive cuts is the music program. Students are essentially punished for having to miss classes now in order to participate in music and band lessons and fall behind and the overall pedigree of being a music student has fallen drastically that is an embarrassment. I wish schools would stop forcing STEM programs onto their students and would value what the students actually want to do.
It is a good school to send your child to and it does have very good academics. They have a variety of classes to choose from, starting with CP levels up to AP levels. Every teacher there wants you to always do your best and they want to help you succeed at all costs. Help is always available after school if you need it. There are also a slew of different clubs and teams you could potentially try out for or be a part of. All the students of Marlborough Public Schools are very caring and kind. There are a number of pep rallies for spirit days which really get the whole school together to celebrate.
