I had wonderful experiences with the quality of the school, extra curricular activities and the overall environment of the campus where both my daughters graduated. Exceptional teachers ( with a rare exception), challenging classes - my older daughter excelled in a marine biology elective. My younger ...  Read more

I love my math science t4ach but, think that they expect too much out of there students and some just don't care. All I have been watching in history as a freshman are rated are history movies. There are so many bullies and bad influences. Can't wait to get out of there. I had an incident where i got ...  Read more

Not to sound like a cliche, but you get out of education what you put into it. If you have a bright, involved student, save the money towards college. We can all use that extra $ when it comes to college tuition. Our son is at Villanova, as a freshman, and is in the honors program and thriving. He ...  Read more

My children had an excellent experience at Walpole High. All three of them went to the colleges of their choice (all very selective schools) and two of them went on to successful careers (one is still at Boston College). The teachers were great, guidance very good, and atmosphere supportive. We moved ...  Read more

The Walpole school system's relatively high performance on standardized tests has more to do with the town's demographics than the quality of the school.

I had 2 children graduate from WHS and both of them thought it was the worst education you could get out of a public school. None of the teachers are committed to the students and therefore don' t actually teach. My children watched movies in school almost every day. If that's how they are expected ...  Read more

I do not agree with the idea that WHS has great teachers. I think that at the honors level, teachers expect students to work completely independently and get upset when you ask questions, but at the CP-1 level, they are so easy they pratically give you answers. The school has no school spirit and our ...  Read more

Walpole high school system has become very corrupt over the past few years. I'm not sure what the problems are but currently our teachers are going by 'work to rule' so after school club are being postponed til further notice. I could go on about many other problems at our school, but there's just not ...  Read more

I am a sophemore at Walpole High School and so far the experience has been great. The teachers are nice and willing to explain anything asked, and there are activities for everyone. Our principal is caring and proud of our school, and he loves his job. I take pride in going there and look foward to ...  Read more

I enjoyed my time at Walpole High School. I graduated in 1997 and learned every year. The teachers were well educated and many had been teaching there for several years. I felt this made the school more like a community. I know many of my teachers had been former students and I know of several of my ...  Read more
