Wachusett Public Schools Reviews

Wackiest schools are nice and clean, have good resources like libraries, computer labs, etc and the majority of the staff is nice and actually want you o succeed. Once I got to high school the administrators are very rude and strict, with little sympathy if you get into trouble.

Elementary and middle schools are 100% fabulous!! Solid foundation for a child/young adult to learn!! The high school is not so great! Good if you play sports, or are in AP classes. For the 1500 other students who are not in to sports or are not # 1 in the class it’s tough. VERY EASY to get lost in the crowd, OR fall through the cracks.
Diversity is extremely low at these schools, being more inclusive and focusing more on academics rather than sports should be prioritized.
