Hartford High School is a school of about 500 students in Hartford, Vermont. I enjoy the helpful, caring staff of who I’ve been able to call my teachers, and who I’m incredibly thankful for. The programs at the school are limitless. From the award winning Performing Arts department, competitive athletics, beautiful fitness center and all of the clubs offered, there is surely something available for everyone. If not, one can create their own club or get their own sports team created, which last year allowed for volleyball, bass fishing and alpine skiing all to become sport teams at the school. The school is a true melting pot. Students and teachers from various backgrounds all are able to come together to create a safe, excepting and enjoyable environment so everyone is able to learn and work together to the best of their abilities. It truly is hard to imagine going to high school anywhere else, as the relationships that I have built there will last a lifetime.

Hartford High School has small classes of an average of 15 students which makes for a safe, intimate learning environment. Many of the teachers are exceedingly kind and great teachers. However the school is underfunded and lacks resources and opportunities.
Hartford High School was a great four years. I feel as if I could go to my teachers about any problems I had in and out of school. I had close relationships with almost all my professors. I played sports all year round (field hockey, basketball, softball). Sports kept my life balanced. In my all of four years at Hartford High, not a whole lot changed. What could have been more different was the administration. The administration wasn't as great as it could have been and I think at times it set students back from extra circular activities, and such.
