I absolutely loved my experience here and I am so sad its almost over! They do their best to provide the most amazing high school experience for their students and create an environment for personal and academic growth. The faculty is very pen to student suggestions and has many opportunities for student voice to be heard for example through the Superintendent's Principal Advisory Board where students meet with the Superintendent and Principal to discuss current issues and make recommendations for the future.. I moved away from the Old Saybrook District for two years and no other schools are like it. I am so happy I got to return and I would recommend this school to anyone!

I love the teacher at Old Saybrook High School because they are are very helpful and supportive. The environment in my school is safe and supporting. It is a small community and you know everyone. It makes me feel confident and the teachers all know who you are.
If I could change something about Old Saybrook High School, I would want there to be more business classes to increase my level of opportunity before I start college.
There is little to no diversity however, the students are usually very open minded. The faculty’s choices are sometimes very questionable especially towards the distribution of budget.
