Woburn High has great personnel. Teachers and staff are always willing to help students and improve the overall school environment. The program of studies has undergone changes, which allowed motivated students to be challenged. The school also invests in many alternative programs for students who don't perform well in traditional classrooms. The sports department is another area that is prioritized by the administration. On the other hand, the music and art departments have a lot of room for improvement. There aren't many opportunities for students interested in these areas. The school also isn't as diverse as other high schools in the Boston area. So, if students belong to minority groups they can experience the feeling of not fitting in or being misunderstood by their peers. In general, WMHS is a great school but it needs improvement in certain aspects.

It's a fine school overall. Funding and the overall culture is VERY skewed towards the athletic programs, leaving arts/theater programs and clubs in general to suffer. This division bleeds into the student body, as the high majority of students play sports and are connected through sports. If you don't play a sport, there is a very real chance you will feel alone and disconnected here. Teachers and administration is hit and miss; some are great, some aren't. The food is awful, but that's to be expected for an average public high school. Overall, it's a decent enough school if you keep your expectations low and if you play a sport it might even be a good time.
I like that the school is a modern building with a great athletic facility, classrooms, and auditorium. Most of the teachers and staff are all very helpful and some of the teachers work to get to know their students personally also. Something that I would change is the diversity in the staff, ways to prevent vaping during school, and classes related to life skills and college readiness to prepare students more.
