I am proud to say that I am a Terrier. We may not have walls but we have a strong sense of community. Our teachers are committed to ensuring we have a strong education and they are dedicated to their students. I have a strong support system thanks to their focus and dedication to all of the students. We have many traditions that are deeply rooted throughout our community. I was a member of the Field Hockey team and there was nothing more exciting that when we won the state championship this year and the whole town came out to cheer us on as we came home. There is nothing like riding on top of one of the fire trucks, knowing the whole town is proud of you and your team. We have one of the largest, active and engaged alumni organizations and I look forward to being a part of it!

For its budget, it utilizes its resources immensely well. Excellent teachers, lots of AP courses considering its sub-350 student population. Students will find that they're not confined to conform to narrow characteristics; allows a high degree of self-expression. Particularly excellent Band and sports programs. Great spring musicals every year.
My experience at Bellows Falls Union High School was truly amazing. Not only did it teach me dedication and if you want something you’ll push for it. There I found my love for soccer, even to this day I play in adult leagues. I volunteered to coach the youth in my town. With support of my teachers and the Vice Principal I was able to work around my school schedule to go to pool meetings so I could work towards joining the military. I am now a Marine and I’ve been in for over a year. I don’t think I would be down this path if it wasn’t for my community, school, and family.
