Saugus Public Schools doesn't provide students with all the help they need. Students have to fight for the education they deserve. They also don't give a lot of help/information towards college and the college search. Once a year in April, the guidance counselors help you sign up for Naviance, help you create your resume, and that's it. They don't give any information about college. Saugus Public Schools needs to change for the better and help their students understand that all their grades matter, from the beginning of freshman year to senior.

I graduated from Saugus High School 3 years ago and I can honestly say that the education I received really helped me. I had amazing teachers who were dedicated to teach us and help us strive in all aspects. My guidance counselor was there for me throughout the college application process and without her help I wouldn't be in college right now. Taking a few AP courses really prepared me for the college transition. Saugus High offered me all the ressources I needed to grow, cultural organizations, community service opportunities. It definitely shaped my future!
Most of the teachers were very enthusiastic and insightful they were always there for you when you needed it. Some teachers took the classroom too seriously as if your life depended on it and that didn't provide room to actually learn the material rather the material was forcibly memorized and quickly forgotten instead of understanding the material and being able to do it. The sports were pretty good and welcoming. The facilities, however, were poor as well as the food.
