I have lived in Westborough for 15 years, and have no complaints! Being educated through the Westborough school system has helped me reach where I am today. I have both academic and non-academic accomplishments. I went to a science-driven school, and will be now attending medical school this year!

The school system itself is very good, organized and informative, and was full of resources if you were having any sort of trouble. The staff was also very friendly and welcoming. The town is bright and full of energy, and is very community oriented, and certainly a great place to grow up.
Westborough is a great community with an endless supply of friendly faces. The education system offered so many opportunities for growing students. It's truly is "westbubble" as being its own world within itself, therefore it is nice to get out every once and a while, though a great home to come back to!
