    "I'm trying very hard to be objective here, but my experience at AB was downright terrible. As a new student, you get 0 resources to help settle in and you're forgotten about after a day or two. Good luck making friends! It's literally impossible. Besides that, the homework load left me working from the moment I got home to around 11 most nights. Forget weekends, I was studying and working the entire time. Mental health deteriorates extremely quickly at this school. Several suicides occurred last year alone. The only things I found good was the clubs and theater program, as well as sufficiently challenging classes. (If only those classes hadn't given ridiculously unneccessary amounts of busy work every night.) If you're looking for theater, this is the school you want- just DON'T sign up for honors classes, or else you'll end up with too much work to have time to be involved in theater."

    "The academics at AB are really amazing for preparing students for college and later life, the students have access to many resources that other schools do not, and the teachers are excellent. Unfortunately, the stress-levels overall are slightly high."

    "The facts about how many AB students get nearly perfect SAT scores, graduate, and go to amazing colleges sound great, right? Well when everyone who goes to AB is miserable, those facts mean nothing. AB is a place where you will be shamed for taking a CP class, getting less than a 2000 on the SAT, and going to a perfectly good- but not amazing- school like UMass Lowell. Quite simply, AB causes depression, anxiety, and seriously low self esteem. The recent suicide cluster is just the beginning of the downward spiral that is Acton Boxborough."

    "The high school offers a lot of opportunities for different courses and activities with high levels of participation and quality. The teachers I have had are generally very supportive and helpful. However, the academics can be quite rigorous and competitive, which sometimes creates some adversity."

    "Good stuff: lots of clubs/sports super LGBTQ accepting decent food choices great reputation for colleges AB has great math and science. I came into my freshman year disliking math. Now I respect the class. The science facilities aren't bad. Ample classrooms with lab tables, chemistry equipment, and modern computers. Cool labs. I don't like the separate lab periods. But overall, most of the teachers are passionate, funny and knowledgeable. Bad stuff: not as many AP courses compared to surrounding towns not many applied/technical courses terrible language department overpowering workload slim diversity (white, Indian, Asian) very little community sentiment This school has courses so difficult that a new level between CP and Honors needed to be created. It's called AE, or Accelerated and Enriched. Additionally, AP and Honors courses both give the same amount of GPA credit."
