Quabbin Regional High School Reviews
Rating 3.5 out of 5 126 reviews
Most teachers were nice and very helpful, but some things such as quality of food could be useful to change for the better.
I’m graduating from Quabbin in 2 days, and from being in this district from Kindergarten, I have times where I’m mad at Quabbin, but overall I will be crying at my graduation. The community (compared to other schools) is phenomenal. There are a few teachers who aren’t the greatest, but you get that everywhere. My only real complaint about Quabbin is I wish they offered better entertaining electives, like cooking, building, etc. and that they listened to their students about which classes they want. Unfortunately Quabbin is losing its best principal this year, Mr. Devine. However, Quabbin is definitely the best public school within the area.
As a rising Junior (Class of 2024), and having been at Quabbin since the 8th grade, I have had a good experience here. Most counselors and administrators truly want what is best for the student (given the student is willing to work WITH them). The same applies for teachers, there are only a few which will not work with the students (a given for any school). The school (due to location) lacks in diversity. There is exceptional academics (Quabbin participates in the IB program). As well as exceptional art programs.
Horrible schooling system dose not teach the right way teachers treat kids horrible they drown you in work they never even showed you there’s to much dramma/fights
I liked the teachers and the programs offered at the school. In particular, the International Baccalaureate program. I felt really prepared for college.
Quabbin is a great school! The facilities are extremely well kept. The academics are challenging and somewhat prepare you for college. All of the sports teams are competitive.
Its a very good school in the middle on a small town. The people are good, the staff are excellent, and the education is very good.
Quabbin offers a ride range of classes between AP/IB/Honors and challenges students to meet their full potential. Teachers are always available for extra help whenever you need it.
I excelled at Quabbin High School. This is because I involved myself in my classes and extra curricular. My teachers enjoyed me in class and I excelled in sports. Quabbin benefits from students that do it all, and for those that don't the experience would be different.
There are many teachers at this school who will always be willing to help you whenever you need it, and genuinely want you to succeed. I had many teachers who took the time to get to know students on a personal level, and who were very understanding if someone had to pass in an assignment late or forgot to do their homework. Although there aren't many AP classes offered, the ones that are definitely help prepare students for college. I would like to see an improvement in helping students get ready for college. As a senior, I felt very confused about the college process and what I needed to get done, and I feel like the school could start educating students about what they need to do to prepare for college early on.
I like the school, there are some strong teachers. I don’t like that there is not a huge array of classes- like only one AP Calc class- level AB there are only IB language classes but not AP foreign language classes. You can’t take honors in all your classes as a Freshman and sophomore only your math classes and maybe science. No option for AP as a sophomore. I also don’t like that teachers that are not well liked by students because they don’t know how to teach are tenured. But some teachers are strong. I will say the AP classes and IB classes are definitely preparing the kids for college- they are super challenging but I am not sure they actually build up the kids confidence level.
Quabbin is overall a very average school. It is neither terrible or excellent. There are a few few good teachers, but many are unhelpful. It often feels as if they are working against you. There is a lack of diversity. The environment is that of a typical high school. It is not too cliquey, but it depends on the people. The sports here are not good.
Quabbin Regional High School is a very good high school, but I feel like they could get better with academics and some of the teachers could be better.
Quabbin School systems have a great overall atmosphere and faculty. There was never a time where I felt unsafe in my environment. There is always multiple adults I could go to if i needed anything. There is always multiple opportunities to better my future or help me figure out the path I want for my life. Quabbin has helped in so many ways and mainly prepared me for my future path of life.
Quabbin Regional High School is an amazing place. I never used to be involved in school but after immense support from each of my teachers, I began involved in so much! Teachers and administration here are great and always going the extra mile to help. IB is also great but does ask a ton.
small multi farm town school. handful of great educators mixed in with some bad administration. depending on who the educator is the student could be motivated to continue their education, or could want to drop out early.
Over the last four years the things I have enjoyed most at Quabbin Regional High School is their class sizes, the courses they offer, and the teachers. Their class sizes are small ranging from fifteen to twenty students, creating a bigger opportunity for one on one help from a teacher. The school also has a wide range of courses to choose from with varying degrees of difficulty such as College Prep, Honors, IB, and AP courses. The teachers are also very accommodating to anyone with a disability, such as myself who is on a 504 because it takes me longer to process things. They are more than willing to help students on a subject during flex block or even after school which I took advantage of daily. Overall, Quabbin has a very good academic program.
