Quabbin Regional High School Reviews
Rating 3.5 out of 5 119 reviews
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.
My experience at Quabbin Regional High School is one I will never forget. Not only did I create bonds with my classmates but also my teachers. These are life long bonds that I’m so incredibly thankful to have made. My academics were quite hard for me, but with the support of my teachers and friends, I knew I could do it. I would not have wanted to spend my years of high school anywhere else but this wonderful and welcoming environment.
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.
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.
I felt like at Quabbin there are very good teachers and they care. You learn a lot, and all of the teachers are very different which is good. Although being a senior and going to college, I feel like I am not as prepared for it as kids that I know from other schools are, based on the resources that their school offers.
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.
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.
Quabbin High School is in a small town in central MA, and class sizes are small with less than 200 people per grade. There is almost no diversity here, the majority of students and faculty are middle class Caucasians. We offer IB classes, which are really great in terms of preparing you for college. You have the option junior year to take all IB classes, all AP classes or regular classes as well as AP and IB. There are students who do drugs here, but I don't know that it's worse than any other school. Our principal really tries to get to know everyone individually and is very proud of our school. We have a pretty good music program (band, orchestra and chorus are all classes) but our drama club is entirely self-funded. Overall, Quabbin is a good high school. I would recommend it to anyone considering coming here
Overall, Quabbin is an okay school. There are plenty of nice, well informed teachers who are readily willing to help any students that need help, and then there are other teachers who berade you for asking a question that isn't up to their standard. School structure itself is fine, no complaints. Kids alright, accept some have an aura of superiority. Not too bad of a school.
Awesome teachers, awesome campus. At Quabbin I felt like i could truly be myself and gain the best possible education while i was there. The teachers were almost always availible for extra help, and through the music program personally i felt at home.
Although there are a wide range of possible classes for one to take, ranging from mythology and folklore to NJROTC, many of the teachers do not care about their students. It is mostly teachers that teach advanced topics, that do no care and will not slow down to help the student understand and will also not allow them to come in for extra help. The students themselves are fairly good, it is a high school though so you are going to deal with immature children.
As a student that requires an IEP it has been rough getting the support I need. The high school is much more compliant with accommodations, but some teachers just refuse to give students the help they need. If you're child requires any form of academic support do NOT sent them to the elementary schools. It was a constant battle to get the bare minimum of extra support. The teachers will treat you like a burden. The special edition department is horribly understaffed in the high school. Classes are more of a 28:1 ratio. Some teachers will go out of their way to help and I am very grateful for them. Funding is lacking in many areas, but it is your average public school.
Quabbin Regional High School is a very inviting public high school that welcomes everyone and does what they can to make everyone feel comfortable. With what is available at this school there is something for everyone. As an alum of Quabbin the experience that I had has made me very ready for college and helped me to be the student that I am today.
