"For students who have been in the district for years, Wachusett will cater to you. However, my daughter, a bright athletic, personable kid transferred from a suburb near Boston and gave Wachusett her best shot, but found the administration and teachers overall unwelcoming and unsupportive. They do absolutely nothing to help transfer students acclimate or support parents in the adjustment to the community."
"I advise every parent who loves their child to think is your child an athliete, an honors student, or very active in extra after school activities?? If you answered no to even one question, DO NOT send your child th this school!!! I will regret having my child finish all 4 years at WRHS, for the rest of my life. This school caused my daughter so much extream damage!! Please if you love your child do not send them to Wachusett!"
"This is a great school. Once you get past freshman year, you have hundreds of class choices at all different levels. The teachers are for the most part very into their jobs. Another plus is that their is so much money in the district that there is a great new building, very smart teachers, and a ton of extracurricular activities. And to be honest, I'm going to a very good university and I feel that Wachusett was much harder. The only downside was that the rules are too strict, and don't allow for teenagers to grow up and have any responsibilities. Students are treated like they are 12 years old, even if they're in 12th grade, which is a big bummer. College will be a shock for many students going to Wachusett, not having to take tests home for mom to sign and all...."
"The school is getting more and more ridiculous. The House System is just a way to separate friends and irritate everyone. I honestly don't see the point in the house system and I don't see the point in the whole 'bus pass' thing. Previous people that commented on the teachers must not have had the teachers I've had. I'm in biology ae right now and that pretty much means we have a lot of trouble learning and we need help.. Well my biology teacher doesn't help us all the time when we don't understand something he will say, 'oh this stuff is easy, you understand it,' and walk away. I heard some other teachers are really poor too. The high school requirements are insane.. I'm in project adventure, which is a required class, and I'm terrified of heights, if you don't climb you get a zero."
"I graduated from WRHS in 2004 and I am completely satisfied with the education that I got there. The majority of the teachers love to teach and also care about the students. Whatever your interest is, there is a niche for you. Any problems I had here were minor, and were probably blown out of proportion because I was, afterall, a teenager! I have just started my senior year in college, and I find myself looking back fondly on the time I spent there and how happy I am that Wachusett helped to shape me into the person I am today."
