New Canaan High School Reviews
I adored my involvement with New Canaan High School in light of the scholarly difficulties and distinctive open doors for learning. I have never felt exhausted with my classes at New Canaan High School, and I am constantly given the chance to attempt new courses. The courses are thorough, however, they generally instruct and persuade me to attempt my hardest in everything. Despite the fact that I have had an extraordinary involvement with NCHS, my school is intensely weighted into their games groups, and I do wish there was more consideration on the things like Art Clubs and Art occasions and our school paper, which I am engaged with. Despite the fact that I take an interest in three games groups, I do feel like there ought to be more consideration regarding different parts of our school and our understudy body.
As a graduate of New Canaan High School, I would say I have a healthy understanding of the environment and was very involved during my time there. As of now, I am thriving in college and I give much credit and many thanks to my teachers as well as administration for that. I was one of the few minority students, and although it was noticeable, I wasn’t uncomfortable because teachers would not make an effort to point me out as being different. Clubs and activities were helpful when it came to finding people either who looked like me or were similar to me in another way because you are joining clubs for things everyone in it is interested in.
I have loved my experience at NCHS starting on day one of entering the main building. The staff and students are helpful, the teachers want you to try your hardest, so they encourage and motivate you to push yourself academically. They also love to hear about their student's outside activities/extracurriculars they are involved with. Overall, a great atmosphere surrounds NCHS!
