    The school cares a lot about our children. It is a great school and not a cookie cutter but it is a very very good school!

    "This was not a well experience at all at this school" -- REALLY? What school taught you that kind of grammar? Sounds like this is someone who knows NOTHING about Minuteman. Actually this school prepares those who want/are going to college better than a conventional hs. In the engineering program Minuteman has a partnership with Wentworth in Boston where Seniors basically complete their first year of college. I suggest you learn more about it before making that kind of review.

    This was not a well experience at this school. The teachers were not the best either. Also its more of a school for training for your job and not going to colleges after.

    Minuteman Career & Technical High School has an outstanding faculty who work with the students and parents. It prepares the students extremely well if they go on to work after HS or decide to attend college. Students are accepted into the same schools as traditional HS such as Northeastern UMASS system RIT MIT etc.

    It provides students with a different learning style an alternative to the traditional high school experience. Minuteman provides an educational experience so that the students are academically successful & able to continue their education if the student chooses & most do. Graduates have been successful at such schools as MIT RIT WPI Drexel & Tufts as well as in the UMASS system and community colleges. One graduate told me that he was much better prepared for his college major than most students.

    Minuteman Regional High School is preparing our children both academically and technically for their future. Our child is doing excellent in both areas and we are very pleased with Minuteman High School. Great teachers and fantastic when it comes to discipline.

    Despite the MCAS rating Minuteman Regional Highschool is an excellent school that prepares kids very well for both college and active life. Selection criteria are serious but the scool does less well than other high school because it accepts and prepares for a job kids who are not seen as college material.

    Minuteman is ideal for kids who don't fit in the cookie-cutter pressure cooker environment of the typical area suburban school. Kids get to do their technical field for a week then do a standard academic week. The best kids go to the same elite colleges kids in the surrounding town schools do and many of the kids go straight into high demand trades. It's a great place for kids to bloom at their own pace and maintain their individuality.

    This school gave my daughter the best education I could hope for.

  • (11 years ago)

    This is one of the most wonderful schools. The teachers are great and the classes are resonable. The sports teams are fun to play on but this is not a school to come to play sports. The shops are challenging and you learn a traid and get prepaired for a real world job. This school gets a 10 from me.
