Marblehead High School Reviews

At Marblehead High, almost every teacher is very passionate about their subject and are available before and after school for extra help if you need it. Classes are very difficult, especially at the honors and AP levels. There is a large variety of science and art-related electives, but less English and history electives. The main criticism I have for Marblehead High is that the difficulty of classes varies dramatically between different teachers regardless of course level, making some college preparatory and honors courses more difficult than the AP course due to the teacher. Overall, I had a great 4 years at Marblehead!

This is a high performing high school with many students participating in different types of extracurricular activities (sports, volunteering, etc.). Almost every student goes to college and is relatively prepared to do so. There are many drawbacks, however, the staff is not always supportive of its students, there is a damaging competitive atmosphere (which inspires a LOT of cheating), parents are way too involved in their children's education, and the lack of diversity is so appalling that they have to "bus in" diverse students. Although this high school helped me get into a good college, I would have never chosen it again.
Marblehead High School is a great place to learn grown and thrive! The school has excellent sports programs as well as arts programs: so if you like basketball or acting in the thearter, or shooting photos the school has something for everyone.
