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!
Westborough is a charming town located in central Massachusetts. There are many beautiful sights, including hiking trails and lakes to visit. The culture is extremely diverse and the majority of the residents are hardworking individuals. Additionally, the education system and schools are very sought after. Although there are many positives to Westborough, I would love to see more shops open within the area.
