Westborough High School has a wonderful community filled with hardworking students and an amazing group of teachers and counselors. The teachers help lead their students down a path of success, and the counselors do an amazing job with keeping communications open with students, from typical school drama to stress to colleges. Teachers encourage their students to do the best, and I feel the difficulty of the coursework has truly prepared me for success in college, and even in my future career. Mental health is important throughout the school, the staff makes it clear to everyone that their door is always open to anyone who is in need, and posters from study tips to suicide/depression hotlines are posted all around the school. There's even therapy animals that visit during the lunches! WHS also makes it known to students that participating in clubs, sports, or fine arts is very important. School isn't just about academics, but also about finding what you love to do.

Westborough High School is privileged enough to have a lot of funding for the fine arts programs, and many students participate in them! The music program is very good, and a very close-knit community: I’m friends with almost everyone in the D Wing (music wing) and it’s rare that people don’t know each other! In actual classes, the academics are very rigorous and difficult, but I know it will prepare every student for whatever college they may enter into, from a community college to an Ivy League! There is a LOT of homework, especially with the copious amount of offered AP Classes, but it is manageable (even with many extracurriculars, like music or sports) if you have good time management, but it can definitely be rigorous. Overall, it’s an amazing school and community, and I am really enjoying my time there!
I really think that Westborough High School is a great school overall, since it has a very amicable environment. The teachers are very diverse and come from all walks of life, and provide very rich education, and the students are well prepared for college well before it is time for early action. Furthermore, albeit my lack of involvement in it, the music program here is phenomenal as many of my peers have went to districts and performed very well, which goes lengths to say how great it is. The same can be said about our athletics program. However, I feel that smaller clubs are often left behind, and more energy needs to be invested in them.
