Regional School District No. 16 Reviews
Rating 4.6 out of 5 5 reviews
I loved the school system! I have been apart of this community for 13 years and just recently graduated from the high school. The main takeaway I had with the school was the connections students and teachers created as well as the interactions between each other. Also in 6th grade with Beacon Falls and Prospect collaboration is very beneficial to a students social life by introducing them to a new set of kids and learn from one another. The focus of academics are immaculate and will prepare you for college. There are plenty of clubs and sports teams that are offered for everyone to enjoy, and it is easy to create a new club. I would highly recommend this for making new friends, doing something you enjoy, or trying something new. My last point to make is that parent involvement is very simple and they can easily be on top of late work. Seeing the students page can make sure they are on the right track for future plans. Overall, I would highly recommend this school system.
Region 16 is made up of two towns: Prospect and Beacon Falls. Each town has their own elementary school. Prospect has the middle school and Beacon Falls has the high school. The commute between the towns is about 20 minutes since they are not next to each other. The region has great teachers and staff as well as well-equipped buildings.
The teachers in Region 16 were all qualified and enthusiastic about their jobs. I was always challenged in my classes, and the opportunities for growth were endless.
What I liked about Region 16 were the teachers and the athletics. I had so many great teachers and learned so many things that I will never forget. One thing that I would change is the clubs, there should be more clubs for students with special needs like ADHD or OCD etc... outside of best buddies.
Regional School District 16 has supported me over the many years that I have gone through their school system. Their motivational classroom settings and faculty has inspired me to apply for this scholarship. I think the schools are overlooked in such a small town but they are filled with kindhearted people that genuinely want to see us achieve great things. I remember every name of each teacher that helped me achieve my goals. The most memorable one that comes to mind is my swim coach Mr.Magas. I've known Mr.Magas since sixth grade, when I joined the swim team with high hopes. He encouraged me every practice not only to do my best in the pool but equally knowing how important academics are.
