Staples High School Reviews
Staples is a phenomenal public high school equipt with every resource and club imaginable. While the academics, athletics, and college preparation are amazing, two flaws that stand out to me the most are: school culture and diversity. College seems to be an overstressed subject at Staples, where it begins to stir competition between peers and high levels of stress and anxiety among many students. In addition, there is not much diversity at the school. However, with all that being said, I think the pros of Staples definitely outshine the cons.
Staples provided me with an unbelievable abundance of opportunities. Truly, anything was possible. Whether it be play on an inclusive and competitive team, build robots and machines with a nationally-ranked science club, or travel to Washington DC to participate in a mock Congress, the possibilities were endless. Any student can find something they are passionate about here, and can be guided by the amazingly friendly, knowledgeable, and supportive teachers. It has quite a competitive atmosphere, but that only served to encourage me.
Staples is a great place for some and not so great for others. I really loved being constantly pushed by my amazing teachers and taking classes that I might not be fortunate enough to take otherwise. The main downfall for me was how unnecessarily competitive the environment was. Really wish that hadn't been the case as it would have made the overall experience a lot more enjoyable. In the end though, I am very grateful for the education I got. In college, I feel more prepared than any of my classmates and that's due to how prepared Staples made me. Oh and the food really needs improvement for such an affluent town, more healthy options would be appreciated.
