Westborough Public Schools Reviews
The competitive level of Westborough High school is very high. Students are encouraged to push forward and do as well as possible. The administration also tries to do as much as possible to allow all schedules to flow as well as possible. There are always changes in the number of classes, different classes to accomodate and attract the students in the school. The guidance counselors are very easy to reach and talking to them is very helpful. They are very efficient and work very hard to help us (seniors) apply to colleges. The only negative aspect that really affects the high school are the teachers. Some are not quite competent enough to teach at the level expected, some need more experience, and many teachers are coming and leaving all the time in certain sections in the school. For example, in a half year span, my sister (a sophomore) has had a total of 4 english teachers and that has prevented her from learning how to write essays.
All of the teachers are extremely accessible and I had a great relationship with almost every single one throughout the four years I was in the high school and the 11 years that I was in the district. Each teacher really wants their students to exceed both in and out of school. One thing I would like to see change is for the administration to trust the students a little bit more, but everyone employed at WHS does a great job and the students are extremely well prepared for the workload and independence that college brings. Kids are in charge of many activities that happen in the school with adult help only when needed, which ends up being rarely.
Although the school system has very high standing and test scores, it has many sore spots. There are many unqualified teachers here that create a harsh an uncomfortable environment. However, it does offer many extra-circulars, which is always a nice thing. As a whole, the district tries to push you to your best, but if you get even one of "those" teachers, your entire experience is ruined for the duration of time that you have "those" teachers.
