Real Stories from Real Students:

I chose Marblehead High School because I wanted a school near Boston, because of the colleges that I am interested in, specifically Harvard and MIT. In terms of sports and the facilities, the school is just great. Among the schools offered, it was considered one of the hardest ones with the hardest courses. I’ve always felt surrounded by great people who was ready to help me.
