This newer large school is amazing. Very nice, the teachers are great and very caring. However the choice to take away recess or any equivalent of that is a disaster. These kids need a break. No good can come of allowing them minimal time to unwind and regroup during the day. This will inevitably lead to more kids being labeled "ADHD" or troubled. its just not right!
The New School is wonderful, although the students are horrible to one another, no joke. Guidance programs and extra curriculars are great, teachers are amazing, overall a great place to get an education.
The academic program in the Weare Middle School is great. They touch all sides of learning, from the facts to the arts, including home economics, art class, PE, and music. There is plenty of extra curricular, including CASA (center for after school activities), sports, music lessons, yearbook, and an EXCELLENT school newspaper program, one of the best I have ever seen at a middle school level. I don't know much about the level of parent involvement, but we all know that the new school will be a great addition to this already wonderful school.
