Read what parents are saying about Lenox Memorial High School
Lenox Memorial Middle and High School is extremely cliquey, to say the least. Because the school is located in a small, wealthy town, students with rich families tend to segregate themselves from others whom they consider "lower" than them. Even the "less" wealthier people tend to form their own exclusive cliques. The academics don't make the situation any better. Teachers pound students with hours of homework that prevents them from doing other activities and leaves them extremely stressed out. Half of them don't even teach, and instead assign several pages of notes and questions for students to do without any knowledge on the subject. This is why cheating is becoming more common at the school. Also, don't be fooled by the high MCAS scores Lenox has supposedly received in recent years. The school organizes MCAS "study sessions" prior to the exams in order for students to succeed and receive high scores. This contradicts the true purpose of the exams, which is to review what students already know in the subject. Without these MCAS prep sessions, the school wouldn't have the false reputation it has now. I don't recommend sending your child to this school.
