Map of Apponequet Regional High School address.

October 25, 2012
I am a graduate of Apponequet. My two older sisters are Apponequet graduates. Currently both of my children, who are at very different ends of the learning spectrum are both enrolled at Apponequet. As with any school, you get what you put in to it from the school. If your child is not interested in academics and is more of a skill centered student, then a technical school would be the better school. If a child is not getting a an education that suits them, but is putting the effort in to learning, then the parent obviously needs to find out what the problem is, and not assume that it is the fault of the school. Apponequet is a wonderful school, with amazing teachers, and a good student body. It is by far one of the best public schools in the state of Massachusetts. Apponequet has had its graduates go to such schools as MIT, Brown University, Providence College, Yale, Princeton, Colombia, and many, many other fine schools. Again, it, as with all schools will give back what a student puts in to it.

I have lived in Freetown for many years and have one graduate from Apponequet currently in college and a senior at the high school. Over the past year I have seen unfortunate budget cuts that resulted in eliminating classes such as woodwork and other staff. Despite this, we have a strong administrative staff that is approachable, consistent and fair. The school continues to excel in Southeastern Mass. My hope is that better financial support will be provided to allow the school to regain the programs and staff it requires and has lost. The overall scores and ranking places these kids amongst the top in SE Mass. There is a small but strong negative parent influence that is very vocal, especially since the inception of a social media networking site for parents. There is a lack of respect for the Administration by a small but vocal number of teachers which feeds into the networking website as well. The Administration needs to be stronger in its dealing with its own staff, despite tenure issues, to move the school forward quickly and professionally. There is clearly a failure to address internal teacher issues that are underming the direction of the school.

We moved to this town in 98, I sent my first 2 children to this school but my last child did not want to go to this school and chose Old Colony. I have found that OC is a much better school, shows more interest in the students, has so much more to offer the students, and there are far less clicks. Everyone just kind of mushes together and get along.

We left the Lakeville school system and now see our son doing well and learning the way every child sould be when they go to school. With out hearing we dont have the funds to teach your child. To all parents you need to be the voice for your child! They have the right to learn.Stand up for them or that school will hurt them forever.

Im a senior at apponequet and I find it to be a good, friendly school. There are cliques, as in every school, but everyone is basically friends with everyone. There are few black students, but prejudice is not prevelant. Teachers are good, but honors classes are recommended if you intend to really get anything out of a class. Mr. kelly is a super teacher and he teaches history n sociology. Mrs. Lameroux (biology) has been commended by many awards for her teaching.
