Marlborough High School Reviews

Most of the classes I've taken here have been beneficial to me, or at the very least still peaked my interest. There are also courses offered at varying degrees of difficulty, meaning I was able to take a few APs which I feel has better prepared me for college. Just like any school, some teachers are extremely supportive and personable, and others seem like they are just waiting to retire.
Also, I feel that students need to be allowed more freedom. High school is supposed to be preparing us for the real world, so why are we coddled so much?! Overall, there are many great clubs to join, a diverse group of people to meet, and exciting sports games to watch/part-take in. High school has been a very enjoyable experience for me and I credit that to the people at MHS.

Marlborough High School allowed me to gain confidence in myself and with everything I proposed myself to do. Caring teachers, coaches, and guidance counselors are the important tools every student needs to succeed academically. I thank the Marlboro school system for their support!
I had wonderful teachers at Marlborough High School, and I enjoyed taking the variety of academic and elective courses they offered. Their music and art programs in particular were very strong and welcoming!
