        I worked at Acton Public & Acton-Boxborough Regional Schools full-time

        Pros

        Hi Tech System Smart Students Excellent Buildings Little to no disciplining needed Excellent Office & Support Staff Not lacking in supplies

        Cons

        Department chairs & Principals NOT seen in classes enough for any clear evaluations to be correct. Teachers let students call them by first name, not teaching respect for the adults NOt enough teaming with classes

        Advice to Management

        I would highly suggest 2 things. First, take time to make unannounced visits to all the classes for a true look at what happens in class. When you only come in by appointment staff & students actions will change just for you. Second, kids need to learn the correct addressing to any adult.

        I have been working at Acton Public & Acton-Boxborough Regional Schools

        Pros

        High interest in educational attainment of staff and wonderful gene pool of the community provides a highly academic place to work.

        Cons

        No real complaints about the school climate although there is a high level of competition at the middle and high school level, and with that comes stress.

        Advice to Management

        More respect for the teachers, who are a dedicated team, is needed from the school committee and from the town leaders.
