I attended New London Science & Technology High School. I highly recommend this STEM school. It not only offers engineering & computer science but you can attend classes at local colleges [Connecticut College, Mitchell College, and programs at the Coast Guard]. They also have a robotics program that was a lot of fun while providing great experience and opportunities for learning, resume building, and scholarships. The atmosphere was supportive and rewarding and the teachers were encouraging and enjoyed exploring the latest advancements in technology. The staff is progressive and always looking to develop new programs and find ways to attract the science, college, and business communities into the school. I earned college credits which help me working towards my degree. I advise anyone to find a STEM high school, if you want to be more prepared for college and your future. It is worth it!

New London High School is a school with very good potential, but with the lack of long term teachers and the school practically falling apart before our eyes, it's hard for anyone to focus on what's important, education. Walking through the halls one can see the water damage in the ceilings, just waiting to explode on an unlucky student. Just two years ago, the students had to leave school for a couple of days because the gym floor had to be repaired, which contained Asbestos. One can say that this is an unsafe environment but us students have gotten used to the fact that our school isn't as wealthy as those around us. As for the teachers, there are new ones every month and every year. Nobody sticks around for long, except for a select few teachers and administrators. Us students cannot create bonds with any trusted adult in the building. Hopefully in the future, the school district will provide better resources for the students and a safer learning environment.
New London is an incredibly unique and amazing school distract. They are constantly striving to improve the education system and culture for students and families. One of the most notable aspects is their commitment to the students and what interests them; something visible in their magnet school mission. Currently, two are available, the arts magnet elementary school and the science, technology, and math high school. These offerings show a dedication to providing students not only with a strong liberal arts core, but an expansion into studies geared towards their career aspirations. In terms of culture, it is undeniably one of the best to be a part of. Whaler, their mascot, culture is phenomenal. All students truly understand diversity and come together in times of need and celebration. This is easily visible in their athletics program, where whaler pride is at its strongest. Overall, New London strives to offer students a rigorous and substantive education.
