The elementary schools are excellent but the middle and high schools have serious issues. Students are indulged and discipline is non-existent. The curriculum is p.c. liberal but not even remotely intellectual. It's just another privileged district full of hypocritical latte liberals that deludes itself in thinking that it is better than it actually is.
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.
