New Milford High School Reviews

I have gone to NMHS for the past 3 years and counting. I have met some of the best teachers in this school, they truly care about the students and care about giving them the best education they can. Although my experience has been very good, there's definitely been some bumps in the road. They were trying to prevent vaping in the school bathrooms but their attempt to do that was closing the majority of the bathrooms causing more issues. We even made it on the news because of it! The administration listened to our complaints and tried different ways that work better.

I like the music/theater programs a lot! There's a lot to be desired still from the guidance/administration, they're not always helpful and supportive and I've had some issues getting help with the things I need help with. Most teachers are super awesome and great and want you to succeed, but a few have been a little disinterested/unwilling to work with me. Overall decent, with a good atmosphere.
My experience at New Milford High School was very good overall. Some of the teachers I had are amazing people extremely dedicated to their students education, many of them pushed me to think on my own and created a student that did not just copy and paste information, but they taught me how to think, the ability to read a situation, a news article, a math problem. The teachers at New Milford High School pushed us to be independent thinkers and I truly believe overall they are all dedicated to their students enlightenment.
The students themselves are good people and many are passionate about sports, school, and proud of where they are from. The environment itself between the staff and students is healthy. Overall New Milford High School treated me great and helped me grow into the person I am today. The skills the teachers taught me help me everyday, and keep me pushing through college, and I couldn't be more thankful.
