    Academics: The teachers generally love the classes and subjects that they teach, which really translates into a good learning environment. The work load can get demanding, though, as many students take high-level courses and participate in extracurriculars after school.

    Extracurriculars: The extracurriculars are very pleasing for our school. So many clubs to choose from, but the best part is there is no club that can't be made. As teachers get paid for being advisors for clubs, as well as interested in the different things clubs do, it is very easy for someone to create their own club. I made my own and so did my friends, all of ours were succesful and easy to make.

    Overall Experience: It's sharon, the most quite, uneventfull, highest rated town in the US. Ofcourse the people there are going to be kind, friendly, rich parents. Even the families that don't earn allot of money are very modest and nice people. I have never met a person from Sharon that I would deam crazy like I would someone from the projects in Boston.

    Teachers: You will find a teacher here and there that will make you want to give up highschool, this will most likely be a science or english teacher. But it is amazing how intelligent the vast majority of the teachers are. There are some teachers who you think know everything there is to know about their subject, and even when you ask some random question about some crazy thing that occure in the field the person teaches in, half the time the teacher can explain to you in detail what it is you read. It's because of Sharons insane school funding that we are able to find so many great teachers. But don't get me wrong, a small few of them don't deserve to teach at a school in dorchester
