Two of my children have attended Putnam through all their lives, one has graduated and the second soon to follow. Both of them always had good things to say about the school and feel as though both its academics and environment have positively increased. The teachers have a great personal and professional balance. The principal does a great job of keeping both the students and the parents informed, especially with the reconstruction beginning this year. I would recommend it to anyone in the area.

I am a single parent of two children who both started thier very first day of school in the putnam school system. One who has graduated and has gone on to college and the other who will be graduating this year so all together I have had 26 years of expierence with this school system and have never had any problems other than your typical adolecent bickering, and all the other children I have had the pleasure of meeting well what can I say it has been a true pleasure they are an amazing bunch of respectful kids and I have met a lot of them and I credit alot of that to the guidance of thier teachers coaches and the rest of the staff at the school because often our children spend more time with them than they do at home.

The comments posted below are completely false. this school is a decent school and although it does not have such good standards as the rival school of Woodstock Academy, there is a variety of different people ranging from african american to white, There is alot of hispanic girls in puntnam. There is people from all over the world. People have to stop making putnam out to be something it isnt. You can learn alot in putnam. My aunt graduated from putnam high school, she became a lawyer and now works near Washington D.C. It cannot be that bad if people are getting very good scholarships to move on and be sucessful in life.

Although per-pupil spending is high (and rising), this is a terrible high school. It offers few advanced classes ,few extracurricular activities other than athletics; and little teacher interest. The principal is new, and seems competent and enthusiastic, but he's fighting a strong headwind. Most concern in town is directed towards the teams' performance, not academics. A regional school would be good, but town pride stands in the way.

My family and I moved here from another district in Connecticut and had to move after a month. My daughter was the only Hispanic girl in the school and was tormented by her classmates and believes she was even discriminated against by her teachers!!!! When she came home crying one day i reported the harrassment to the school and they replied, ' There is nothing we can do about it'. Also, I reported an incident of discrimination where my daughter was called a 'spic' to the police department who said, 'It wasn't a big deal', and were very rude to me and treated me and my family as if we were inferior.This school and the town of Putnam are abominations to American society. Ignorance and intolerance is rampid in this poor country town with a failing school system.
