Amherst-Pelham Regional School District Reviews
I wouldn't want to have gone to any other high school besides Amherst! The teachers are amazing and truly care about the education and well-being of their students. They make themselves very available before and after school to help you with anything you need. Another thing that makes Amherst a stand out school are the electives and extracurricular activities. The performing arts department is beyond amazing and produces amazing things year-round. The art department produces beautiful work and talented artists. I could not be more proud to say that I attended Amherst Regional.
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.
