Waltham has great schools and offers a ton of extra-curricular activities. If you’re only looking at MCAS test scores, don’t. MCAS does not cater to ELL children and Waltham has a higher percentage of English Language Learners than surrounding “affluent” communities and is unfairly counted against the schools overall scores and ranking. Think with common sense and you’ll understand Waltham is good place to be. Brand new high school and elementary school on its way, great teachers, great sports, great programs, incredible new superintendent and great neighborhoods.

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.
