Medfield Public Schools Reviews
Rating 3.77 out of 5 13 reviews
Challenging but fair school system. All teachers push and have your backs what they know you are struggling.
The academics is pretty good, with different options suited for different students. One thing that I'm not sure why is the case is the fact that AP courses are only offered for upperclassmen. It would make a whole lot more sense if they were also available for underclassmen, as it limits the amount of AP classes a student can take. The environment at the school is generally very competitive, creating a stressful environment to surpass your peers. Sports are the big focus at the school, so if you don't participate in one you're pretty much an outcast.
Five years ago, I would have given Medfield Public Schools an Excellent rating. Teachers are very dedicated, but have increasingly lost their voice in the current culture where no one dare say a word about what is best for students out of fear of retribution. Decisions are made from the top, with little meaningful input or influence from key stakeholders. Task force, advisory group and search committee recommendations have regularly been overridden, so few people are motivated to participate anymore (unless they want to win points with the administration). Student voices are also silenced. Many of the best teachers/staff have left, and it has become increasingly difficult to keep staff in the hardest-to-fill positions, especially special ed. There have been comments (first-hand and second-hand) made about a toxic working environment.
The teachers were very good in making sure the material is taught well and that they make sure everyone understands it while making the day fun at the same time
Medfield Public Schools used to be great. It was a great school system but within the last few years the schools have focused more on academics, pushing kids to go to college and pushing kids out into the world with little to no basic life skills. The things they teach in classes are things you will never need to know in life, and you come out of school with all the knowledge in the world on useless information and no clue what a tax return is. Medfield did a good job preparing students for writing in college, I felt well prepared in that aspect, but pretty much everything else taught was never needed at college.
Great academics with a variety of classes and great teachers. This school prepares children well for life after high school.
Love MHS. It has great teachers who really care about students and gives plenty oppertunities to get good grades.
There was not a lot of mental health support from the staff. I would like to see more outspoken support for LGBT students and an effort to stop bullying.
The school system is great I feel challenged but am able to keep up with my work and get good grades. I feel prepared for tests and presentations. I do feel safe in school however, I do not feel included all the time. The school itself is good but the school culture needs work. The school emphasizes sports teams over everything else. My experience with Medfield Public Schools is that they do not take action in problems if it involves someone on a sports team.
I received a superior education that prepared me for college. Medfield schools are now some of the best in the state, even better than when I was a student, and people seek to move to Medfield specifically for the schools.
fine for a public school. teachers very, students are fine but the diversity is none and people are very racist and not accepting to most other then white catholics.
