Pelham High is a small school, therefore it is a close knit community, almost like a large extended family gathering each day. This provides great opportunity for school spirit. Classes are either difficult or painfully easy. Overall, the curriculum could be more challenging. There is however, always places to seek help, whether with teachers or other students, for those more challenging classes. Pelham High also allows its students to take running start classes which is a quality that makes me grateful. By taking these classes, in terms of cost and education, students here are already one foot ahead in college. Being apart of such a small school allows the teachers to learn every student on a personal basis, making learning all the more impactful. My experience at Pelham High School has been overall, a wonderful experience of which has given me the opportunity to reach my future goals.

I wish the school was more diverse. It's easy to feel left out. However, this has started to change, thankfully. Teachers are a bit of a toss up. There are many extremely well-versed teachers who know their students and the subject they are teaching, but there are also those that refuse to listen and can barely give a lecture on the subject they've been assigned to.
Throughout my four years at Pelham High School in Pelham, New Hampshire, I feel as if I didn't reach my full potential. Especially during my time there as a Senior. I had received little support and guidance from my assigned counselor regarding the college process and I ended up graduating with little to no knowledge of how that process works. As the first in my generation to attend college, I required all the help I could get but, unfortunately, I didn't receive such. My counselor did not reach out to me about such matters and I ended up seeking guidance elsewhere. Overall, my experience at Pelham High School was okay at best but, it could have been much, much better.
