21 Parent Reviews for Worcester Academy

I started at WA when I was in 6th grade because I hated public school. To be honest, going to WA was the worst decision of my life. I begged my parents to pull me out after my freshman year. 8 others in my class just could not take it anymore either. Since I started every kid was a stuck-up, rich, know-it-all. ...  Read more

I've noticed that the negative reviews all have misspellings and severe grammatical errors. Perhaps you just were not smart enough to be at WA, but that is no reason to be bitter at the school. It is an incredible academic environment, and is unlike most prep schools that have an air of entitlement. ...  Read more

I think WA is awesome. Some of my friends are in this school. WA's math is so strong, although I'm 1 year higher than my sister, I can't answer the hard math questions she asked.

All three of my children attend Worcester Academy. We are thrilled with the curriculum, faculty and extracurriculars. We have been part of the community for five years as all three started there in grade 6. The faculty truly care about the students and demand the best of them, yet are very supportive. ...  Read more

There is no way out of this school. Over the years, my experience has been awful and dreadful, making me want to leave this school more and more as I think about it. Everyone I ask that goes there says it is a bad decision to even apply here. Although, I am greatly fortunate everything thing they have ...  Read more

An absolutely wonderful experience with an incredibly involved and caring staff, administration, and faculty. I had diverse interests and the school provided me an avenue to pursue as many interests as I wanted to. I showed up to a tier-1 college and excelled from day one because of the preparation that ...  Read more

I am a parent of two children who attended Worcester Academy, middle and high school. My two children were very different from one another yet both had outstanding experiences. My oldest, who now attends an Ivy League university, was more than prepared for it's academic rigors. I highly recommend Worcester ...  Read more

I graduated from WA in the 80s, and though I realize the school has changed significantly since then, I would attend all over again. This school was not easy, but my parents got their money's worth, as it was expensive then too. This school instilled in me a level of endurance and gratitude that has ...  Read more

I am very unsatisfied with this school. For one example, my daughter left WA her 6th grade year and attended SPM. She is now at St. Peter Marian High School and refuses to speak of her sixth grade year. The teaching examples move along too quickly and the teachers are very unaccepting and take things ...  Read more
