Ponaganset High School was definitely a great high school experience. Although the school is in the middle of nowhere, it is a beautiful school inside and out. The athletic facilities are gorgeous and there are many different ways to get involved with the school. There are clubs, sports, unified sports, and musical/art related pathways. Are you into plants/animals? Ponaganset has its own Agricultural Building with animals and a greenhouse that the students use for learning!

My expierence so far at Ponaganset High School has been outstanding. Ponaganset is a National Unified Champion School and the inclusion that we won that award for really shows every day in class. No one ever gets left out of anything. If someone is eating their lunch alone, at least one person will get up and invite that person to their table. Ponaganset is a welcoming school and for the 3 years that I have been at Ponaganset High School, I have felt at home.
Overall ponanganset is a good school, but it does have its problems. There are many teachers who seem to not care about teaching us anything and some who don't even put effort into give us grades. This quarter alone I had three classes with 2 or less grades. Also some teachers seem to spend more time talking about themselves then the subject they're teaching even in Ap classes. Also some teachers seem to not always respect administration and their decisions because admin changes so often.
