I like Woburn Memorial High School overall. Almost all teachers are very understanding and care about their students. Some teachers have been outstanding, while some I wish I never had. The food is terrible, but so are most schools food. The school is kept neat and clean constantly. The school strongly enforces school safety and makes a very good effort to communicate any arising problems with students, parents, and faculty. There are many classes to chose from when it comes to course selections. However, I do wish there was a kind of class that teaches you how to use a credit card properly, how taxes work, the easiest way to py off student loans. Woburn Memorial High School offers every kind of class from AP to EC, art to physics, theatre to calculus, and almost everything in between. The school faculty encourages students to not go home when the bell rings and stay for clubs, sports, activities, and events. There are also plenty of clubs to choose from.
Woburn High School itself is a beautiful building on well-maintained grounds. The education a student receives from Woburn High is truly an outcome of their efforts and support they receive from the right teachers. Woburn is known for its sports teams and activities, they have many. Although scary how much substance abuse and at-risk kids attend.
