My kid has been attending the high school since freshman year as a school choice student. Coming from an urban school setting, I had high hopes for this school. Unfortunately, I am so disappointed. Aside from the wonderful art teacher and a couple of good English teachers, I find the staff to be just so-so re: teaching quality and enthusiasm. The let their best science teacher get away. The principal, retired from another school, is uninspiring and it seems as though the kids have no respect for him. He actually pulled a student out of class and lectured them about why they should stand up for the pledge of allegiance, even though that is supposed to be voluntary. The PTA is made up of a small group of parents who do not welcome newcomers. They just want your money. The male gym teacher creeps my kid out. They send out notices with spelling and grammatical errors all the time (this is a school) and they often haven't responded to inquiries I have made. Drama program is popular but the teacher is quite old and very eccentric and my kid is initimidated by her and she only does obscure plays. I do like the guidance counselor for the 11th and 12th grades. Kids are nice.

Administation has lost the ability to deal with today's generation of students (and teachers). The students are out of control and discipline is uneven and it seems to depend on who the student's parents are. There is a lack of elective courses to fill the graduation requirements without filling the student's schedule with useless junk.

I love West Boylston! I think that this school system is great for anyone who wants to achieve great things. The teachers have good relationships with the students and are easy to confront about any issues. Although the funding for schools isn't the best, the activities are great for the kids. The sports teams are fun for the student athletes and fun for us parents who get to watch the kids succeed in what they love to do.

I have two children that go to this school and overall the staff is doing the best with what we are giving them. As a member of the community we could look at the whole town as letting our children down, not just the school. We have closed down our pool, our basketball and tennis courts are in need, we are paying our and above to hold on to art, music, and paying every where we turn around. The school is not the problem, we have let our children down by telling them that these things are not what we are paying for, but please, fill up your SUV and buy that house that is eight times large then your neighbors.

One of the WORST small town schools! The teachers don't trust the administration. The administration doesn't trust the teachers. The bullies run the building. Get rid of the administration from superindendant all the way down, and maybe some of the better teachers will come back, and then, maybe the school will be all that is SHOULD be. It is a real shame, because the elementary school is Fantastic!
