Nipmuc Regional High School Reviews

Nipmuc Regional High School thrives in academics, music programs, and arts programs, along with a number of sports. Many teachers are passionate for their subjects and genuinely care for their students success and wish to see them thrive, in school and out. They offer a number of accommodations for students with disabilities and mental issues. The school is also very advanced technology. Despite everything they succeed it, Nipmuc has a number of issues. To start, the diversity amongst students is very, very low with the vast majority being white and Christian, however the school is a safe space for LGBT students. The school lacks in ability to create enthusiasm about school events and many have had to be canceled due to a lack of student interest. Many students have mental issues but the guidance department tends to be unsuccessful in aiding said students & often fails to accommodate to students with IEP’s and 504 plans. Overall, the school could do much better in regards to students

Many people often say that Nipmuc 'Is not a school'. The community in Nipmuc is very prominent and visible to all. There are typical clicks, but there is more overlap between groups. Everyone knows everyone. All of the teachers are not only invested in the student's academic lives, but they are very invested in their home lives. They are very lenient in deadlines if a student reaches out about issues. A few times a year, there is a wellness week and an inspired learning day. During these weeks, there is no homework, and students have activities to do during a set-aside period. Students are able to learn about things they want to such as how to file taxes or blacksmithing. This week is a time for the students to focus on their mental well being. The counselor's office is also amazing. Several councilors are always available for in-person meetings or by email. They are able to help with school problems, social issues, home life, and mental health. Nipmuc is an amazing school.
My experience at Nipmuc was decent. One thing that I liked about the school was the variety of classes there were to choose from, once you are an upperclassman. The school is overall organized, and my guidance counselor has always been available to meet my needs. However, there are still somethings that I would change about the school. I believe that the lunches should be split up by grade level, not based on what floor your class is on during lunch block. I would change this because many people are left without friends during lunches, and have to sit alone. I personally have been in this situation and it made me dread going to school at all. Another thing that I would change is teachers availability for after school help.Since there are so many kids that stay after for extra help, you end up not getting enough attention from the teacher in order for you to understand the problem, since there are so many kids that they need to help.
