Wellesley Senior High School Reviews
Wellesley High School is a great place to spend 4 years. While I had my ups and downs there, in reflection I could not have been supported at school any more than I was. They are flexible in helping and assisting you, but you do need to advocate for yourself. Go in with a good attitude and try your best and you will have a great time!
I've had a very good experience with this school. The academics are very rigorous, and the sports are very competitive in comparison to some of the other towns in the league. My only complaints are the lack of diversity within the school and the lack of STEM-funded activities. The school puts a lot of emphasis on the arts and sports, but doesn't pay much attention to the STEM subjects, especially for girls in STEM. Nevertheless, the curriculum prepares the students very well for college, and the teachers are super helpful.
It’s a very 2 sided school. You can either strive or struggle. Great teachers and bad teachers. I struggled when I attended the school, poor grades, S/A, and I wasn’t doing well. My parents were not happy with how the school let it continue and didn’t do anything more than give me detentions. Students have the ability to strive, and I will say the school has great electives. By all means if your son or daughter is good academically and is a healthy individual, the school will be great, but my experience with the school has been negative. The wrong people doing the wrong things, but there is the other side if your child is healthy and will make the right decisions, they can strive there. Make sure they don’t associate with the wrong people, but if they attend make sure they get involved with the school and utilize the great electives they provide. The school has great opportunities, but it is easy to fall down a negative path there.
