I would like to point out how old all the other reviews are on this site.I will preface by stating that four to five years ago the school system was in a very different place than what it is now,and that in 2008 I would have given my school system a higher review but that is no longer the case.I am a recent Stonington High School grad and I graduated in the top 10 percent in one of the highest gpa classes the school has ever seen.Through out my career in the school system it has gone to hell in a hand basket.The teachers at Deans Mill are great, but most recently the schools have laid off almost all of their part time help which is a huge deficit.All the behind the scenes and the people who keep the student to teacher ratio low have been eliminated and the students will pay for this.On top of that, the disciplinary aspect of the high school does not exists,the high school teachers do not care about their students are there is an overwhelming feeling of teachers punishing students who excel.There is an extreme amount of favoritism among the teachers, and if you have the right name you will be in good shape.I could go on but I have reached the character limit.Dont trust scores alone.

I'm a current junior of SHS and would like to promote the school's success. two of my seven classes are taught with smart boards and every classroom is equipped with a projector and drop down screen making it a very technologically advanced school. The school has great drama productions and the AP classes are extremely challenging yet rewarding courses. There are a multitude of clubs and sports available to students, with almost every sport having a Freshman, Junior Varsity, and Varsity team. With the block scheduling, it is so nice to have 2 nights to work on homework, so you can ask your teacher about it the next day if you don't understand and not have to get a bad grade for not completing your homework, because you can finish it the second night, after you talked to your teacher that day in school.

Stonington definitely prepared me for college. The teachers were mostly all wonderful. Extracurriculars were available for all students. If you wanted to get involved, you could!

With new facilities, an excellent staff, great extracurricular activities and high student achievement, Stonington High is really on a roll. They have been good in the past and with our second daughter getting ready to enter, we are very happy that the school is on a track to even better performance. The Drama department does a great job, and the basics are very well attended to.
