Lyme Old Lyme High School is one of the best schools for education I have heard. I agree with this statement because the past 3 years have been such an experience! I have learned so much from the teachers, and I really do love how close students can become with the teachers here at Lyme Old Lyme High School. I feel as if I have been able to learn better with the connections I have personally made with my teachers. The school is always looking for more and more to offer the students with hands on activities throughout the year to bond with the school which I think is absolutely awesome! The school offers many sports and also sports to join with other schools because we have a small school but the students on these specific teams always say it has been a great experience for them to bond and be a team with another school. Overall, I believe Lyme Old Lyme High School is a great place to be!
Lyme - Old Lyme is very small. This leads to great class sizes and teacher to student ratios, but despite a very well educated and well traveled populace, it is very much a small town, very closed attitudes towards outsiders. Most kids have had their friends since elementary school, and no interest in involving new kids in their friend group. This experience has been the case with multiple kids in our family, an exchange student we had, other new families. Our kids have been profoundly sad and lonely. The administration chooses to see these as isolated cases of kids with mental health issues rather than a systemic problem. We have been here four years and feel like we would still be outsiders if we stayed for 40 more. I would not recommend moving here . If your kid is very outgoing, exceptional at a sport like basketball, soccer or rowing, then they might be able to break in to a group of kids via sports. Otherwise, your kids will be happier in a bigger more worldly school.
It is a interesting school. I only been attending it for about 4 weeks now since i recently moved from New York. The kids are respectful, no bullies from what i know and they're a well managed school!
