All of the teachers are dedicated to student success! They have a great music program that works for anyone who is interested in addition to resources available for those students who need extra help. There is also a wide range of clubs and activities offered after school so that most students can participate. I genuinely enjoyed my time in NB even though the building itself could use some work.

Close knit community. Most teachers take an interest in your success and make themselves available to you fir extra help either before school, study halls or after school. Others care there just biding their time and do not have a vested interest in their students. There should be a more uniform approach as to grading, late work acceptance/credit, quickness of posting grades, posting homework, etc. Each teacher has their own set of rules which can effect your grade tremendously if you're the unlucky student who has the non-flexible/noncompliant teacher.
North Branford high school try's to make the best with what it has, in some aspects it is successful but in others, not so much. Many of the teacher actually care about teaching and the students, but others such as Chris Webster have verbally harassed students calling them "embarasments to watch". The administration is inept when dealing with bullying. The focus of the administration is on controlling students use of vapes so much of the issues with bullies and problems with the school climate are ignored and frankly it is disgusting.
