Sunapee Middle High School

Children of teachers receive preferential treatment in the classroom and on the athletic fields. Bullying is fully alive.

Amount of homework: Too much

Teachers waste too much time in the classroom, talking about irrelevant material instead of staying focused on teaching. The result is lots and lots of homework. They are there to collect a paycheck.

Absolutely not, unless it is THEIR child. Otherwise, teachers don't really care about the development and education of the students. Way too much homework because teachers do a lot of talking and less teaching in the classroom. Their should be cameras in the classroom, but then again, they would only delete them.

some kids are taught the way they should be...others, those who have bucked the system, have special needs or have not participated in sports were never even looked at

Students have been ridiculed and demoralized due to what administration has done or said to them.

Kids were placed out of district rather than working within their home school so they could access the general education environment in the least restrictive environment

there is no honesty, integrity and fairness in this school. The Administration makes sure of that

My student began at SMHS only to learn to quickly that the administrators favored certain students. Particularly the students who participated in sports and had good grades. All other student were left to their own devices and administration was often witnessed bullying students with inappropriate or derogatory comments. Sean Moynihan does not know what it takes to lead a school and what the curriculum needs are. Megan Reed is no better and in fact, the passive aggressive tendencies and her "better than all" message she delivers are keeping these students down. There are great staff at Sunapee High School. Get rid of ADMINISTRATION!

Mr. Baker really ties the school together. Not only does he teach his students very well, but he teaches them in a way that is fun and gets the students involved. His various drawings and jokes make his class the highlight of the day. As the song goes, Mr, Baker; he is awesome awesome awesome!

As a former student of this school and a parent that has 2 children that have or are attending this school I would not recommend this school. My oldest child had learning problems and behavioral problems and they treated him like the plague. My other child is the total opposite. Very bright, quick to learn and no behavior problems. Even this has been a problem. She tested 1 point away from distinct in Math, then entered Sunapee Middle School and the math program was a joke. She started testing lower and lower. If I didn't enter her in Algerbra in 8th grade I am sure it would have gotten worse. As for the Culture in this school, If you aren't in the right click your child will be overlooked in all aspects including sports. Unless you can smooze the right people, SEND your child elsewhere. Has been like this since I have gone there, but now it seems to have gotten worse. I was going to give the Parent involvement a higher rating until I read where it said, treats like a partner not outsiders, that would depend on what that parents status is with their click and how much money you have.
