Amherst-Pelham Regional School District Reviews
I feel well-prepared and ready for college. I was fortunate to have had dedicated teachers throughout my education in Amherst, all who were willing to ensure that I understood the material and was successful. I have a diverse peer group and feel well-connected to the community. Amherst values education and it shows!
I had a very good experience at the Amherst-Pelham school district. The district always promoted being kind to everyone and helping out anyone you could, which is a message that was reflected in many of the students. My biggest complaints about the district are that from my year on almost everyone had to take IMP for math and that the high school is cutting many classes. Unless you took extra math classes after school or over the summer in middle school you had to take IMP. I think that everyone should be able to choose between traditional math and IMP. However both the IMP change and the cutting of classes stemmed from budget cuts and a drop in students admission. I personally wish I did more sports and clubs, and in general was more socially active. The teachers and staff were very kind, understanding, and dedicated to teaching. The district was a very welcoming place to everyone and it felt like all of the staff really cared about their job and the students.
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.
