Narraguagus Junior/Senior High School Reviews
I can recall only two teachers that actually seemed to know what they were talking about in the slightest. All others were extremely intellectually challenged themselves, and not fit to be in a teaching profession. It was common for even the below-average students to be more knowledgeable on a topic than the teachers, which usually devolved into an argument about how the teacher's a teacher so must be right. Many classes were basically just free periods- either the material was moving at such a slow pace/so below what it should be it's impossible to slow oneself down to such a level, or the teachers literally wouldn't teach anything and just chat with their favorite students, put on "A Beautiful Mind" ten times throughout the year, or present some pseudo-academia as fact.
It is a very small school, so that means that there is plenty of one-on-one time with teachers, and it is easy to get help if you need it. However, for students who want a challenge, there are not many difficult classes. Also, the school is more focused toward kids who want to go into a trade, not a four-year type college.
Narraguagus Highschool is a school in the Washington County area. This school is filled with an average of 221 students per day including Hispanics and students that have special needs. The school used to have a drama club, a french club, and a book club. The school's teachers challenge us to learn and study so we can be the best that we can be. The school has a number of six classes every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday that are around fifty-five minutes apiece and three period classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays that are 80 minutes apiece. On Tuesdays and Thursdays there is also homeroom. On Monday, Wednesday and Friday there is a study hall that changes from periods. Every student gets to have a laptop to use for schoolwork during the year and just recently it has changed to iPads. There is some frequent bullying around but it is resolved quickly.
