Pomperaug Regional High School Reviews
The school itself gets me very prepared for real life education. Going to college, I found myself in classes reviewing stuff everyone had to go over junior year that some students in college couldn't get their heads around. I personally had issues with some of the teachers, some of them just talking about how they themselves are better than the students and showing no respect to anyone in the school, and some that were just very harsh in the classroom. But overall I think it prepared me for all the kinds of people I'd end up dealing with in college and one day when I'm in the workforce.
Many of the teachers at Pomperaug are interested in the subject they teach and are enthusiastic and engaging in their lessons, but it's common to see teachers in the history department that either don't understand what they're teaching or don't care. In my Freshman and Sophomore years at Pomperaug I had history teachers that knew so little about their classes that they actually read straight from the textbook--mispronouncing vocabulary words they were supposed to know--and repeatedly distracted the class from the lesson plan to go over personal stories with little to no connection to the subject material. Extracurricular classes have similar issues with the percentage of teachers not committed to the course they teach--or unable to teach said course. But these issues aside, most if not all of the teachers in the other departments have enthusiasm in their course and a strong understanding of the material they are teaching. They tend to be competent and helpful to students and make sure to be as available as possible outside of the classroom if any of their pupils have questions.
My experience at Pomperaug is fair. The education I have received thus far has only helped me in the real world at my part time job, on the court and in conversation. The downside to Pomperaug are the restrictions put in place by the administration on the students that are not fair for the students who don't cause trouble.
