    This school is on the smaller side. Small means students and teachers are not exposed to enough variety in culture. In addition I have witnessed teachers being treated poorly both by the school system (school "leadership") and by students.

    My son graduated from WBMSHS 2 years ago and he got an excellent education there. Small class sizes very personal attention to each student full nurse staff music art sports are all well-supported by the students parents faculty and community. This is a public school that gives all of the good facets of a small private school.

    I just moved my family to WB a year ago and it has been a completely positive experiance. The curriculum is very challenging but the teachers keep it interesting. The school has a very safe comfortable learning environment and the principal is great.

    My son and daughter both go to Wb schools one in 7th and one in kindergarten They are the best schools in this area bar none! I sent my son to private school thinking since he is gifted he would be better served in a more academic enviroment. Wrong. Compared to WB schools he was bored and so we moved him and now he is so happy and our daughter just started kindergarten and she loves it! We wanted to sell our house and buy bigger but it just wasn't worht the move if we couldn't stay here in WB!!

    We moved to Massachusetts over 7 years ago when my sons were going into 4th and 1st grades. I am extremely happy with the West Bridgewater public schools. My sons are now in 11th and 8th grades and the teachers and administration continue to exceed my expectations.

    WB is a great school. The community is great and most of the kids get along very well. It is a very small school but it is very strong and sturdy. The principals are tough but all of the kids like him in the High School. As for the elementary it is very well too. School Choice has also opened up the school much more too which has helped it to grow.

    The best school in the area. I grew up in WB and am raising my family here mostly because of the school system. The teachers are amazing. The principal is tough but fair and the kids really like him. The curriculum is fantastic and varied - nobody falls behind no one is bored. If I had a choice of any school in the area I would pick WB. And this goes for the elementary schools also. There's a lot of pride and the children are all treated with respect. It's just a fantastic school system.
