Wellesley Public Schools Reviews

Since first grade, I have been going to school in Wellesley. I like going to school in Wellesley. I love how the school is clean and how there are a lot of resources for students. The only thing I do not like about my school is that it is very far from Boston. I wish there were close by bus stations that can take me home when I have to stay late for dance. I also do not like that many students clique with students that they known for a long time. I wish many students at my school would mingle with everyone not just their childhood friends or family members.

Very nice school overall and nice people around to make you feel more welcomed. Good in every given catagory that a good stabled school has to offer. I have been in Wellesley public schools all my life and to see the difference Between my school and my other sibilngs school is remarkable and makes me appreciate my school even more.
This place needs more diversity. One culture is expected to be shared among the student while kids fork other countries of origin feel left out and forgotten. There have been a number of race based incidents where students have bullied others on the basis of their race.
