Amherst Regional High School Reviews
Amherst had a lot of opportunities for me to explore in the arts which I appreciated. As a student not involved much in the schools athletic department I was able to take many art classes including ceramics, 3-D Art, Photography, Painting. Amherst also has a great dance and intensive theater department. I got in involved with Theater sophomore and junior year the experience really allowed me to step outside of my comfort zone. Aside from the theater arts our schools efforts towards diversity and inclusion did not go unoticed. I took part in many dialogue trainings and mentorship programs working in an intimate setting with students from all racisl backgrounds to dicsuss equity and how to better our community. A lot of character building at Amherst High School which prepped my success at the University of Massachusetts Amherst once I graduated.
