I have had 4 children go through Natick High School; the school has gotten steadily worse during their tenure there. If a student is self-motivated and high-achieving or has special needs he/she will will get the attention and services he/she deserves. The opposite is true for the rest (read vast majority) of students. Teachers go from mediocre to abysmal and administration is smothering. The addition of school-issued laptops has made the situation much worse- students now have toys to play with in class and the kids run rings around a comically inept tech dept. I can't wait till my youngest is out of there!

Natick High School is one of the top schools in the state year after year! Students are surrounded by success at all levels. The town resources coupled with the great teachers foster an environment that will prepare your kids for any Ivy League they choose.
Ever since the laptops and new school it has not been a productive learning environment. People get distracted all the time during class and I can personally say tht my grades have dropped because of the laptops. Also getting the classes you actually want is impossible and most of the teachers are mean to the students. There are some really good teachers but not a lot. Despite what you hear your child will have an awful experience here.
I love it because I met some great teachers there and they all affected my life differently.
