Scarborough School Department Reviews
I have been in this school system since 1st grade, and am now a senior, and I could not suggest Scarborough more. There is something for everybody here, with amazing athletics, clubs, faculty, and student body. I hear some horror stories from some of my friends that go to other schools, and that made me truly appreciate how great Scarborough is. I still have relationships with my teachers from Eight Corners, Wentworth and Middle School, where I frequently go back and visit them. The nearly all students are very well behaved and I feel like the faculty and staff have always tried making my success their upmost priority.
I liked all the teachers and college placement staff and the great job they did with getting students ready for college. The one thing I would change with the Scarborough school department would be to allow the teachers to have more of a voice with changes in the school. The big changes in the district created some division among teachers and the administrative staff and the community as a whole. Some changes were driven by the state but others could have been easily changed based on staff and some student feedback. Either way staff doesn’t always get heard by upper level administration.
The environment is very friendly and welcoming. Teachers are always willing to work with you outside of class in order to help you become more sucessful. There are many different clubs and organizations through the school that allow you to get involved in the school and community. Finally, at Scarborough High School there is a lot of school spirit which makes athletic games and events very exciting.
