Northampton Public Schools Reviews
I have been in this school system since I was in kindergarten. I feel that the amount of time that the administration spends editing their curriculum and teaching methods definitely shows in the classroom. However, there is a significant disconnect between the teachers and students, most obviously in the High School, that needs to be addressed. The drama that goes on within the school is something that needs to be addressed. While students in high school are growing and leaning how to be more independent, they have not reached full maturity and need to act as such. I have seen, and had first-hand experience, with too many accounts of bullying that is expected of elementary and middle school students. Administration seems too busy to ever be able to address this issue, but it is a pertinent one and detracts from many students' ability to learn.
My time at Northampton Public Schools was great. The high school does a great job of preparing students for college and really helped us through every step of the way. My guidance counselor in particular always took the initiative to reach out and make sure I was on track - starting from the very beginning in freshman year. The teachers and staff always made sure to connect with students and really get to know them and their interests. Most staff even made it a point to support their students outside of academics, whether it be a sports game, play, ceremony etc.
I really loved the school, I think they did a great job for a public school education! The teachers were interesting, and they had a wide variety of classes to chose from. They did a great job organizing events, especially for the seniors on their last week.
