Mascenic Regional High School Reviews

All Categories
Mascenic Regional High School resides in the small town of New Ipswich, NH. The annual budget is regularly quite low, so often times teachers are laid off or are forced to leave for their own sake, not allowing certain classes to run. Some of the teachers are great at their jobs, while others were simply hired because there was little or no competition. The school prides itself on making sure all students graduate, but doesn't ensure that the education being received is of good quality. There is very minimal college preparation, they guide you through setting up your naviance and common app accounts, but anything other than that you will have to learn elsewhere. The school's diversity is almost nonexistent, so any children going to this school will not be exposed to many different cultures. On the bright side of things, it is usually quite a peaceful school and it's small population make it easy to know most people in each class.

Mascenic is a very small high school in rural New Hampshire. With a student body consistently less than 400, Mascenic provides a very unique learning experience. Ultimately, students decide what to make of Mascenic, and what they will take away from their experience there. Such a small population provides students with opportunities that might not be available in other districts. Leadership positions within the school tend to be less competitive, positions on varsity rosters more readily available. Those who take advantage of these opportunities will go leaps and bounds. I have taken advantage of every opportunity presented at Mascenic, and unlike those at Mascenic who do not set goals for themselves and strive to achieve, I can confidently say that my experience at Mascenic has been one of a kind, but still invaluable.
I have 64 kids in my graduating class, and we have less than 400 students in the entire high school. Due to the small community we are in, it is difficult to get kids to be motivated towards school activities or academics. Again, since we are so small, we don't always receive the same resources or opportunities as a school with 4,000 kids might. However, if you work hard and you don't fixate on the negative aspects of Mascenic, you will be able to enjoy your time here and make it worthwhile.
