Amherst-Pelham Regional School District Reviews

I love Amherst! It's a fantastic community with diverse options and activities, for everyones background, likes and interests, and academic standing. The school system does great things with the little money they have- it is sad to watch so many programs and classes discontinued when students are so clearly interested in them. Overall, a great place to go to high school. Go Canes!

They are very focused on academics and while I appreciated the range of classes I had options to, that wasn’t really my focus as I was more interested in the arts. The theatre program and the middle school is limited, but at the high school was above and beyond the experience most high schoolers get. The budget has at times restricted the schools ability to provide electives but the ones I have taken have been incredible. The only complaint is the value placed on being an all honors kid by a student population with a large percentage of professors kids from the area colleges. There is far too much comparing and competing that does not help and in fact impedes and healthy learning environment. But my overall experience has been absolutely critical to making me who I am.
This school is very accepting to ones that are new to the school and the area. I am a person of color and I never really had a bad experience at school in terms of interacting with other students. There is a good amount of students who come from different country's and places that are different and I think we do a great job with welcoming them and making them feel comfortable. In terms of academics; as a high school student, I thing the school gives many options with what I am interested in and want to learn about. Also, this school is very open to taking other ideas and learning about it. Like LGBTQ+ Literature; I feel like other schools do not support that and I am very proud that our school is open to teaching about that and making it a norm. Overall, we have a great community and I am very thankful for this school to giving me all these options.
