I made some great connections with staff here. So many teachers were ready and willing to help. I was very fortunate to have a couple teachers I became very close with.
There is some diversity, but a lot of judgement from peers. Teachers rarely do anything to stop a bad situation until something tragic happens. Teachers and counselors only listen to you about mental health issues if you have a 504 plan or an IEP. Everyone else is disregarded.
Its a very community oriented school with a lot of student pride. The staff is great, respectful and understanding and the student environment is generally positive.
Inter-Lakes is a school that I believe should inspire other schools. There is little to no bullying, they have many support groups or grief, drug use, alcohol use, LGBTQIA+ members and alleys, and more. They show that they truly care about their students and want to do everything in their power to give them a proper education. In New Hampshire, I think Inter-Lakes is the best out of every single one. Inter-Lakes may have its faults that include short lunches and office hours, the amount of homework each night, and the lack of events that involve 7th and 8th grade with the high school. This can all be solved easily if as students we all voice our opinions. In conclusion, Inter-Lakes is an amazing school with countless opportunities as a student.
The teachers are all nice and willing to help students when needed. The sports are good too. I played volleyball all four years and no one was ever cut from any sports team. Once I got to high school I felt like I had the ability to be placed into classes of my academic level.
Inter-Lakes was a great high school for me and for anyone who likes a smaller class. With the smaller classes, a student can get more one on one time with a teacher. Also, every student knows everyone, it is easy to become good friends with many. Unlike larger schools where you may only know a hand full of kids. The teachers there are outstanding and you can develop a lasting student-teacher relationship. I would like to see students have a little more of a say in the decisions of the school. Topics maybe regarding lunches, the menu, special activities, surveys in which speaker to hear. Overall, Inter-Lakes was a good experience and a good environment for me and has helped me pursue my dreams.,
Inter-lakes sets you up for failure. If you want any help with college hopefully you and your family can figure it out yourself because guidance is no help. Staff either never gives homework or you have two plus hours a night. Administration is worthless does nothing for the students. Athletic director doesn’t do anything except put everyone in a bad mood. Kids can’t protest gun violence unless they want to be suspended, dress code only applies sometimes if teachers feel like it. Most classes the teachers are so bad if you want to learn anything teach yourself. Language classes are ridiculous two plus tests a week for kids that take three other classes a week. If I could change one thing about high school it would be going there.
My overall experience with ILHS has been pretty good, with a few minor complaints. While this school has great resources and wonderful staff, math and science gets priority, leaving anyone interested in art, history, or music in the shadows.
They weren't very understanding of my situation when I had no internet. Rather than allowing me to submit paper copies of assignments that other students did on the computer, I was often forced to stay late at school for weeks at a time in order to finish assignments on school computers.
Several teachers are outstanding. Many other teachers seem to establish an expectation for a student's ability to perform, and teach to that expectation rather than trying to push the student.
Bullying has not been an issue, and I'm not aware of special security measures. During school hours, visitors have to sign in and be buzzed through the door. But most staff and parents know each other and support each other.
This school has some really fantastic staff members and teachers, and also some so-so teachers. We've had both great experiences and frustrating experiences. It's a small community, where parents and students know each other and support each other. Overall, a good experience for us and our children.
I have never seen a single instance of bullying at this school.
I've been to three elementary schools, two middle schools, and two high schools, and never have I felt more accepted and integrated than at Inter-lakes.
Teachers take the time to get to know every student individually in order to meet their needs for education.
The classes are okay but the workload is too much especially if the student has a job.
Our resource officer sucks. He's not helpful at all and really does nothing. Also in the health part the nurse is rude. She doesn't care at all and obviously hates her job
