Needham Public Schools Reviews
The Needham Public Schools system is a really good system; however? With the high cost of living in the state or Massachusetts and in Needham there is no diversity in the school system. You will be challenged in the system; however, the lack of diversity creates an even greater challenge. My social life in this district was horrible! Kids can be mean! My academic life was challenging and also rewarding at times.
The school environment of all three levels of school at Needham were great. The teachers and administration does a great job of laying a foundation of support in the Elementary levels. At middle school, there is an emphasis of integration, friendship, and being unique by the teachers which trickles down to the students. In high school, there are endless resources and clubs that a student can feel connected to.
Needham High School has great teachers, who are very personable and really foster great relationships with the students. The teachers are nurturing and help students to succeed. The course options are good too. However, I do believe there should be fewer required courses and for options for electives. This would allow students the opportunity to try courses in subjects they have never tried before and which they don't have any knowledge of or experience...such as Robotics, engineering or computer programming.
