Five outstanding Waltham High School seniors are headed to Harvard this fall to study biology, government, Shakespeare and architecture. Congrats!

It’s gotten really hard to get in. The acceptance rate of 3.2% was the lowest in Harvard history.

Many thanks to Waltham supermom Michelle Learned, Eliza’s mom.
