New London High School always care about our education, the teachers are always approachable when it comes to our grades and always encourage us to do our best. In this school, they always support me and give me opportunity to do the things that i really want in my life, I am from a different country and the second I entered on this school i taught everything's gonna be different because i cant speak English fluently and thinking that I might get bully but NO! They are hospitable and help me on everything despite of our differences of races and culture in this school, and also because of this school they helped me to excel to all my classes and have a straight A's. This school never failed to give encouragement and opportunities to all students because they care about our education and our future.

As a parent of a student who just graduated, 2019 go Whalers! I find the teachers act with favoritism, but I guess that goes on at every school. My daughter struggled at first, but found her rhythm after. Overall it’s a safe and the school tries it best to guide each student to their future.
New London High School is similar to most inercity schools except for one thing: the teachers truly care about the future of the student. They work with us in college applications and feeds us food that’s decent compared to other schools. For the moment, most of the facilities need to be updated, but that’s happrning in the next few years. Not only that, but the Football team is some of the best in Southeastern Connecticut! All in all, an 4/5 School.
