Quaboag Regional High School Reviews
Rating 3.42 out of 5 48 reviews
Close community, everyone knows everyone which helps with comfort and learning. Teachers are friendly and know you personally and reach out to you for outside of school problems as well as in school. Students are all generally friendly with each other with no real "cliques".
Quaboag is a very small intimate high school where everyone knows everyone. This school has come a long way in the past years and continues to improve to provide the best small town school experience that they can offer.
The school doesn’t have much of a budget, so unfortunately there aren’t as many opportunities as I would have hoped for. However, the opportunities we do have like theatre and ap art have really helped me to open up and learn more about myself. For the most part, my teachers and classmates are very kind.
The teachers and other staff care a lot about students and do their best to teach the material effectively and provide support
I am a current senior at Quaboag, and have been at the school since 7th grade. The teacher and staff are all really nice and supportive. The academic programs are okay, but sometimes the teachers lack the ability to help students succeed in the class. Sports are a big part of the school, but the teams are not great, especially the football team. Every new school year the 7th graders behaving worst than the previous grade; they get into fights, do drugs, or set trash cans on fire. A lot of students vape during class and do other sorts of drugs. Much of the boys are sexist, and make really inappropriate comments or jokes. If you look past all that, there are a lot of kind people at Quaboag, and it isn't that bad.
Quaboag is a very small school with limited funding and therefore less opportunities than other schools but it is because of this that the community is so strong. Teachers are able to really listen to their students and give everyone the time they need and administration is very good at communicating and working with the students. The administration is dedicated to opening up new opportunities and continuously improving themselves. Because it is such a small community, it is a very close knit and strong one and a great cooperative learning environment.
I love the teachers at Quaboag. They are all so dedicated to their jobs and what i would like to see for them is better payment. I would also like to see more money put towards there athletes and into the building itself which can be 6 different temperatures depending on where you are in the school.
Quaboag is a school that's has the potential to be great but money comes in as an issue that no one wants to help with.
My overall experience at Quaboag Regional has been a good one. I am a school choice student originally coming from the Spencer - East Brookfield Regional School District. When I arrived at Quaboag, I could definitely see an increase in the rigor of the classes compared to my previous school. Being an honors and AP student, I like to be challenged in my school work and Quaboag certainly embraced this. The teachers are all passionate about what they teach and have a passion for the students. They are always willing to stay after and help students one on one to make sure they can thrive in the classroom. My experience on sports teams at Quaboag has been amazing. I am on 3 teams at Quaboag -- cross country, basketball, and track. The coaches are dedicated to the betterment of the athletes, while making it a fun atmosphere. While they want to win, the coaches are focused more on our development as individuals and the team as a whole.
I mean I guess the school could be worse. They aren't the greatest when someone needs actual help. Or getting people involved. Overall wouldn't recommend. Go to Tantasqua.
Teachers and administration are great, main issue is drug use and disrespectful atmosphere coming from students.
Quaboag hates SPED. They will call the cops on students with behavioral issues. They called the police on my son and pressed chargers on his behavior that was determined to be a manifestation of his disability. The administration has violated civil rights and blatantly lied.
Quaboag has gotten me involved with the community over the past 6 years I have been here. I have to say due to quaboag I am now more mature, passionate, and driven in all aspects of my life. The sports program here has slowed me to learn skills I couldn't in the classroom: teamwork, determination, and even love for the sports. I will miss this place and all the peers I have grown fond off, but my next destination on my path will be just as empowering!
Loved every one of my teachers. They are compassionate and really strive to see students succeed. The only thing I would've changed is the VP. Mr. Salvadore is a misogynist and disrespects and undermines female students. He pulled me outo of physics once because my bra was slightly visible, he then made me walk to my car to get a sweater while he made me feel uncomfortable with comments about how inappropriate my outfit was. He also refused to listen to my friends and my side of a story when a boy harassed us. He made me pick up trash the day before graduation. He is unprofessional and sexist.
Teachers are all very knowledgeable in their fields. Technology is mostly up to date, and student community is fun and active. Administration does their best to accommodate all students. Guidance office isn't the most helpful but get job done.
I liked that Quaboag regional high school is a small school with many options to choose from. This school brings many opportunities for success. The way the communitie comes together to creat such a well built school really shows the outcome to our success. There never is a "I can't" situation because once a teacher hears this they make sure the student can. All of the teachers invest all of their time and efforts to make sure all of the students learn as much as possible in the time that they are there.
I believe that the extracurriculars are amazing. the music program started their after-school program due to the classes interfering with each other.
