John Stark Regional High School Reviews
I attended John Stark from 2010-2014 and it was a good experience for me. The town of Weare, NH is very small, so everyone I went to high school with, I had already known since kindergarten. John Stark was a little different however, because it was shared with the next town over. It is great to meet new people that you may not have ever had the chance of meeting if you only stuck with all the same kids you had known your whole life. Sharing a school brings more diversity into the program. Stark has wonderful teachers, some I still keep in contact with even after graduating from college. They have excellent programs including clubs, sports, and intraschool activities. I was a part of a Peer Leadership program that was technically a class we took during the day, but also did activities out of school. There are just a lot of opportunities for kids to expand their education and get involved and it was a really great school.
I like how involved the teachers are with helping their students succeed. Throughout my 4 years, almost every teacher has helped me succeed in all my classes and get to the point of where I am now. They also have a wide range of classes and clubs that have also helped get me ready for my future. Peer leadership being one of the most important. I have learned many leadership skills and have been able to work with a wide range of people getting me a bunch of experience that will help me in the future.
Now, I am a senior, and I would be lying if I didn’t have an extreme case of senioritis. But I have never once intentionally skipped class at JSRHS. This is because the classes are decently engaging, and I hate to let the teachers down. It is all in all a pretty decent school. Every school has its cons, however. Some teachers here tend to have vendettas for students they barely know, but you will get people like that everywhere. The student population isn’t much better either honestly, but they at least know that’s a problem that needs fixing. I also think these new ‘curriculums’ are ridiculous and basically just make everything overly complicated. Seriously, just go back to how it was. But I think that’s a pretty universal thing that all schools have. I do have to praise the JSRHS art department though. While there should be more creative classes, the teachers there do a good job at the art department. All of them are pretty renouned in their respective areas too.
