This school may seem great and really innovative in their new programs but it's not. The scheduling is a horrible mess, I've have never had a year here that has felt normal and organized, nobody- students and teachers- ever knows what is going on. This has made it significantly difficult to learn because everyday feels like the first day of school. I have always felt as though the administration are only acting for themselves. I used to have Sanborn Pride and loved the school, but now it feels as though the school system has forgotten about its students. With the new policy essentially doing away with deadlines, I have grown to be a lazy, uninspired student who no longer cares for school, which is sad because I love learning. I would not recommend this school; it's become saturated with misguided policies that do nothing but make its students overwhelmingly unprepared for college and the future.

This is a quality High School. The school cares about the kids education and is always trying to improve. A hidden gem.

This school was opened in 2006. The facility is outstanding. The students and teachers have great pride in their school . Over all I would give it a 4 out of 5, because no school is perfect. You get out of school what you put into it.

This school is horrifying. First off, lets talk about the physical school. The buildings air conditioning has been 'broken' for three years now. There is also no heat in the winter time, which is also apparently 'broken.' When students and parents complained, there was assurance that it would be fixed. Three years later, it still isn't. The building is fairly new, so there are no other major problems other than the temperature. (which by the way, makes for an extremely uncomfortable learning environment.) Next, we can talk about the schedules. They are extremely untimely and in no way beneficial to anyone's learning standards. They constantly change which causes much frustration among students. Now lets talk about the staff. The teachers aren't too bad (Except for a special few) but even if you had a problem with them, nothing will be done about it! The guidance department is most of the time unwilling to help with educational related things or make schedule change. Sanborn overall is not a prime choice to send your child to unless you would like them to be extremely uncomfortable & have their needs ignored.

Usually when I thought about Public Highschools, not a lot a great things came to mind. But now as a Freshmen, Sanborn has showed me that not all of them are bad. Sanborn has a great and friendly vibe as well as pride. Even the teachers are very kind and still teach us well. I find myself loving school more each day I go.

I am a junior at the high shcool and love being there. Yes the buildings are top notch but hey we are getting a brand new 30 million dollar school! I couldnt ask more. The teachers are great all educated and the students adn staff are great and spirited and have sanborn pride. The sports at our school are wonderful to with a soccer team that has one 3 out of the 4 state championships. There is nothing wrong with our school other than the fact of the buildings but that will all change next school year and you will all be wondering why your kids dont go there.... `R.K.

'Sanborn has provided a learning environment for many kids to achieve in. while the facilities are not the best the campus setting provides students to get out and stretch their legs between classes instead of staying in cramped hallways like in many schools. the teachers at Sanborn are all top notch and provide all students with the opportunity to become the best there is. Sanborn will begin to make a very big name for itself in the coming years and it is great to see how all the students achieve so much. Sanborn is ready and with a new school on the way it is likely to become one of the best schools in the state. Town officals and residents need to be more open to the fact that Sanborn Students are some of the best and will continue to be there with just a little support.'

This school is really what you make of it - like most schools. The facilities, while not top notch, are still superior to many schools and still provide a suitable academic environment. I graduated from Sanborn 7 years ago, attended an excellent university and have been able to persue all of my goals. Th school and the teachers provided me with a strong educational background which allowed me to excel. The building of the new school in the coming months will further propel this school into becoming a well-known, outstanding academic institution. It takes more than a school, however, for a student to excel. And parents that are forever critical of the school should also look at themselves. The vast majority of my classmates are doing very well for themselves and the school played a part in all of our success.

This school offers a number of AP classes for its students. Though current facilities are becoming insufficient, a new high school has been voted on and approved. Most importantly, students get a good education here, if they want it.

I also pulled my children from this school. I think the teachers are dedicated. I think the parents are concerned. I think the inability of the town to manage itself by balancing a tax base is the culprit. The schools and children suffer because of the lack of funding. Elected offcials seem to be protecting thier own in-town businesses or property by being anti-new business development. It's sad. This town needs a professional manager.

since the parents do not want to fund a new high school the state of NH is considering closing the high school. 70 teachers have left in the last 3 years. that should tell us all that there is a problem somewhere.
