This is a group of teachers who are not afraid to try something new, to experiment, in an effort to find the best experience for the students. There is less emphasis on the social aspects and more on the "norms" and what is/should be expected of a young adult. If you are headed to college, this may be your best public school option around.
This is the best school in the area. My daughter has been enrolled since nine grade and I love the fact that there are less students per teacher and less drama than in other high schools around. Teachers encourage their students to think and discuss different topics in a very effective way including several presentations throughout the year. I commend every single teacher and especially Mr. Willard, who has been a great leader of this wonderful school.
It's amazing! The entire school philosophy embraces a variety of teaching methods to address a variety of learning styles. No 90-minute lectures here - learning is often discussion based & students are encouraged to think for themselves rather than simply regurgitate information. Tai Chi is offered for P.E. and students are allowed to chew gum and bring water (both of which, by the way,facilitate improved focus and attention in class). This school takes everything that is so wrong with a typical public high school and does it so right!
I love this school because I graduated from here. It's the best school in the Newton and Conover area.
