Westborough High School is an overall wonderful school with tons of diversity and opportunities for all. The education at Westborough High school is phenomenal and unlike any other high school in the area. Teachers work with the students to make sure they are doing well and are always after school for any necessary assistance. They challenge students to do their best work and to really work their brains. The sports programs are top notch with some of the best coaches around. For instance, Roger Anderson, head volleyball coach, lead the spectacular 2017-2018 varsity team to the state champions in which they earned their spot as #1 in the state. The student athletes at this school are incredibly talented and determined, all while maintaining their grades and working hard at their school work. Westborough High welcomes any and everyone with open arms, making Westborough really feel like home.

I definitely believe that Westborough has one of the most diverse students in the Worcester County, which I find very important in an academic setting because as students, I feel like we should be more integrating of cultures and embracing the differences that we can offer. Over my four years, I believe that the majority of my teachers have been outstanding and always willing to help students, especially with the strong science/math department. Westborough preps students for the future, though I feel like there isn't much of an emphasis on the mental health of students.
Compared to other public schools, there is significantly less bullying and stigma against groups of people at Westborough. In my four years, there have been about 2 fights total that were taken care of by administration immediately. Everyone is very competitive and almost all strive to attend college so there is a large factor of stress in the atmosphere. However, the staff makes sure we know that there are other options for the future as well such as the military and taking a gap year. The education is good and most teachers do a fairly good job covering the curriculum. Westborough is known to score much higher on AP exams than other schools thanks to the rigorous AP classes.
