I'm a graduate of Nashoba, class of 2003. Nashoba thoroughly prepared me for college and had an excellent curriculum. When I attended, there were electives which focused on business which included banking, economics, and entrepreneurship. They even had an actual bank branch in the school! Because of Nashoba I was able to get a part-time job as a bank teller (not bad for a teenage job!). I truly believe that the onus is on the student to apply himself/herself. I enjoyed the fact that the faculty did not hand-hold and coddle (but they went the extra mile to assist students seeking help). When I attended, there were various levels of difficulty (2-yr college prep, 4-yr college prep, accelerated, honors, and AP) for each core skill set (english, math, science, etc...). If any student mastered their level of difficulty they could advance to a more difficult level. As a result of this system, my transition to college was incredibly easy and I found that I was light-years ahead of other freshmen. Now, in my adult life I am a co-founder of a multi-million dollar business and I credit Nashoba for having courses which allowed me to explore my interests.

worst school I ever attended. They has you sorted out by economic class. If your family didn't have $$ you were not going anywhere. There were not many options or opportunities if you were not college bound. We couldn't get to our after lunch class in the time allotted because of the distance from the cafeteria so we got detention every day. THat put me home at 6 PM. I had to work to help at home.Consequently I could work or do my homework, not both. Couldn't drive your own car, just wasn't permitted. I will say however that Mr Blank and Mrs Blank (not identifying teachers as per the terms of use) helped a friend and I get into Marlborough Voc/Tech, Now Assabet. We learned a trade and earned a pretty good living. Marlborough treated us like adults. I remain forever grateful to those guidance couselors at NAshoba, (certainly not the school itself) and to the state of Massachusetts.

My son 'the Doctor' graduated from this terrific school. He was accepted a every college to which he applied. The advanced placement classes are excellent and foreign languages abound.

Best school I have ever attended. I went to another high school and this was so much better. The teachers are very supportive, and most of the administration is there if you need anything. The electives are great, and there are 5 different chorus' to choose from (granted you do well for your audition) there is Jazz, Madrigals, Women's Ensemble, Concert Choir, Womens Pop (no audition required). The band sounds amazing and theatre is amazing! There are many different clubs that a student could choose from, any student can find at least one club that fits them if they wanted to. The EMT program is helpful outside of school as well as in school. I greatly enjoyed attending and graduating from this high school this past year.

This school is a pretty good school. School Choice shouldn't be allowed as the school is full. There is not enough space for all the new and incoming students. You cannot get into classes if they are full this is not fair to the people paying taxes in the towns. This is a regional school with 3 towns. All towns are in the process of expanding with new neighborhoods, townhomes, etc... they will need to build a new school soon. The labs need updating too. Also, this school does not offer enough electives such as: journalism, photography, Computer science, creative writing, fashion design. They should start thinking of the future.

Overall an excellent school. The quality of teachers you have all depends on whether or not you are willing to challenge yourself. Sure there are weaker teachers, but you can work your way around them. Having taken both honors and accelerated classes, it is clear to me that the better teachers, rightly, teach the more difficult classes. As a student you can choose, for the most part, what you get out of your education. At Nashoba there are a wide variety of extracurricular programs - from music to sports to the EMT Program and various clubs there is something for everyone. There are various opportunities to be taken advantage of if you wish to do so.

I am a parent. This is a great school. Easily one of the top 10 high schools in Mass. if not New England. The school is outstanding and supportive, yet really challnges students. Seniors go off to the best colleges in the Nation every year.

You either fly or you don't there is no middle ground. The average student is lost. Administration and guidance is of no help, special ed is horrible. Some very good teachers but some very bad teachers. If your an amazing student or a jock its great. Theatre is good too and they have a good EMT program.

One of the Best schools in the country, Nashoba is a great. the academics there are top notch, often scoring as one of the top 10 schools of MA. it also has many extracurricular activities, including a special waver to train students as EMTs and have them on call during school hours, an opportunity not seen in many other places in the entire country. the sports teams are pretty good with girls soccer being one of the best in the state. The faculty are dedicated and open to students. easily one of the best schools in the country. Also the honors Latin program, taught by Harold Becker is supremely comprehensive with over half the class winning awards on the national Latin exam.

Generally a mediocre education. Some wonderful teachers and some absolutely terrible teachers. Not much encouragement for excellence. Administration not very helpful.

I love going to Nashoba Regional High School. It is a great school. The education is a mixture of old-fashioned lectures as well as hands-on activities. The people are also very friendly here.
