I loved going to this school. school It is a very good learning area. The teachers are very nice and so is the faculty. The rules were clear and set to a certain limit that all students can follow. It is also a great school that has great extra curricular activities. It allows you to try new things and the vocational program is better than minuteman's courses.

I am a student at Waltham High School and i think it is unfortunate that I had to attend this school. For the most part the teachers are pretty good, its the adminstration that I have a problem with. A lot of the rules make no sense and are completely pointless. They use the theory of if a few students are doing something wrong then they must prevent everyone from doing it, when they should be dealing with them indivually and that would be more effective for them. It gets to a certain point where the students are seniors and can not be babied forever. To sum up I do not agree with the majority of decision the people in power have made nor do I think they are qualified for the jobs they have.

The quality of the school programs are excellant. Availability of music, art and extra curricular programs is outstanding. Level of parent involvement is unavailable due to the fact it is high school.

At the middle of the state in MCAS results, below average instrumental music, strong teachers' union drives educational mediocrity, antiquated technology.
