Natick High School
25 Best Public High Schools in Massachusetts
- Natick Public Schools, MA
- PK, 9-12
Senior: I moved from my home town to Natick just to go to this amazing, new, state of the art school! The teachers and counselors show interest in their students and offer a variety of engaging lessons that prepare students for college and a future career. The student environment is competitive which strives every student to do their very best. When their is a problem, students and faculty work together to find a solution. Everyone has a voice.
There is an extracurricular activity for everybody, and if there is one a student thinks is missing they are encouraged to start one.
Natick does have some faults. Natick has largely white majority so schools lack diversity. However, programs have been enacted to increase diversity and ensure that everyone feels safe and comfortable at Natick.

Roanoke Catholic School
- Private School
- Roanoke, VA
- PK, K-12
Senior: Roanoke Catholic is a school that teaches students belong the classroom and prepares them for either college. In the past years, 100 percent of Catholic seniors have attended college and this year the seniors have received over 2.5 million in scholarships. I started Roanoke Catholic two years ago and it was a big change coming from public school. In public schools you could slide by without doing your homework, but at Roanoke Catholic all work is required and graded as a test grade. Roanoke Catholic does not let you fall through the cracks. I also must say the food is outstanding!!
One thing I really did not like were the uniforms. In public school you basically wore what you want, but not in private school. My first year the gentlemen had to wear a shirt and tie during the winter and in the summer a polo shirt with the school’s logo and khaki pants or shorts. This year they changed the dress code to where gentlemen could wear the polo shirt and khaki pants all year around.
