Northborough Public Schools Reviews

Each of the schools in Northborough is fantastic. With a very active family community. As well as Retired residents participating in events, volunteering etc.

Algonquin is second to none in school spirit for all their Sports teams! The whole community goes to the Football games, not just the family's with kids playing the sport.

Northborough Public Schools are excellent. The students are well-prepared for college and the teachers/administrators genuinely care about the children. The coaches, however, do not. Right before his sophomore year, my son had to stop playing football due to his 5th concussion (all received during practices). He had played since he was 7 years old and it became a major part of his life...the structure, the discipline, the camaraderie. When he was told he can never play again, not one Algonquin coach reached out to him to express their sympathy or support...nor did they try to find a non-physical way to keep him on the team. The coach of the lacrosse team (my son's 2nd love) never reached in any of the aforementioned capacities. To say I am disappointed can be left unspoken. For my son, however....it almost ruined his high school experience.
When I was there, it was a brand new school with fantastic administrators and teachers. I loved the small school setting, with a graduating class of 300 . At that point Algonquin excelled in college readiness. My personal favorite however was the music and arts department.
