North Branford School District Reviews

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.
I love the close-but community North Branford high school shows. Everyone knows one another and students share great relationships with their teachers. Something that definitely should be changed is an updated version of our school. It has been the same since they’ve built it in the 60’s and the heating/cooling system is unfunctional.
