Waltham High School is an ideal place for students to learn and grow. We provide a wide range of core academic subject offerings tailored to individual student needs as well as a large number of elective opportunities in areas such as art, music, dance, drama, physical education, business education, and family and consumer science. We are a comprehensive high school with nine career and vocational technical education programs available to our students. There are also a number of co-curricular activities that our students benefit from, including several clubs, various special events, and a full range of interscholastic athletics. Our small class sizes, extensive support staff, and house system all help to personalize our students' learning experience.
