The academics are great and teachers genuinely want their students to succeed. Marblehead High School offers a wide range of courses allowing students to explore many different subjects whether it is working or challenging AP classes. The school has provided many opportunities to bring in volunteer work and experience to enhance the learning done inside the classroom. Despite the competitive but supportive academic environment, Marblehead High does not have a very diverse student body.

I had a pretty good experience at Marblehead High, but I know that many of my peers didn't have as good of one. There were some problems with the administration being too hard on some kids and letting others get away with whatever they want. They gave a select few kids a really hard time, which was just unfair. The administration also had terrible communication with the students. When there were events or deadlines many students didn't know about them until the day before or the day of. This was a big problem when we had mandatory after school meetings that we didn't know about until the afternoon announcements that day. With so many students with many responsibilities and commitments outside of school this was impossible to coordinate.
Marblehead High School is a great learning environment, with plenty of good teachers and many interesting extracurriculars. Overall, I was extremely satisfied with my experience there. Of course the school lacks a bit of diversity since it's located in a very white, upper middle class town, but the administration is doing its best trying to enrol different people from other towns through special inclusion programs.
