Colchester High School Reviews
The academics programs were very strong in regards of AP classes compared to other competing high schools. The school persisted of the main sports like soccer, football, basketball, baseball and lacrosse. The soccer team for boys and girls were one of the best teams in the state but the other sports were lacking in skill. This is partially due to the fact that the school was so small not a lot of people try out. The school should have done better to add more sports like volleyball and such. The extracurricular clubs and activities were also lacking. Not only was there a not a lot of clubs but there were also not advertised meaning it was extremely hard to join clubs.
Colchester High School is a very good school that prepared me very well for my freshman year of college. My only complaint would be the lack of certain AP classes or association with business conventions which seem common elsewhere. However, for the size of the school we did still have adequate opportunity for AP classes. Perhaps the biggest benefit to me of attending CHS was the ability to learn outside of the typical classroom, with access to a variety of online class as well as the chance to travel for classes.
I loved going to CHS. I thought it was an incredible place to grow up. I feel like the school really prepared me for the rest of my life. Amy Minor was an amazing principal, and now she is superintendant, and I feel this will really make Colchester even better. The classes were great, the teachers were smart and really cared about me. If I ever have kids in Vermont, I want them to go to Colchester!
