When I went to Fitch, I absolutely loved it. I met so many good friends, the teachers and administrators were so supportive, and I felt that Fitch definitely prepared me for college. It provides a variety of courses and programs, ranging from AP, to Honors, and to the IB Diploma program. No matter what, you are destined to get an academically enriching experience at Fitch, because the teachers provide individualized feedback and great support for your mental health and academics. It feels like you have friends and teachers that truly care about you when you go to Fitch. While the school is not perfect, it definitely is an amazing public school that, if someone is considering, one should definitely attend.

When reflecting on my time as a student at Robert E. Fitch High school, one word always comes to mind; Diverse. It cannot be understated that the environment at Fitch prompts an understanding of your fellow peers that many high schools, and colleges are unable to achieve. Fitch High school calls the town of Groton, CT its home. Groton is also home to the U.S. Navy. Growing up in a Navy family, moving across the country every 2-3 years, I never felt so warmly embraced as I did by my peers, and the faculty of Fitch. The diversity of this school extends farther than the intermingling of locals and ethnically/culturally/religiously different military families, who were processed in and out of the area as is routine, but rather were reflected by the faculty of the school as well. Each teacher, and thus each class, possessed potent personalities that allowed me to comfortably pursue my interests, and feel at ease in my learning environment in the most fundamental years of my life.
To say it simply, my depression was cured by graduating.
I have never felt as happy as I did when I finally was done with this school. No more crazy teachers, no more drama, and no more rude immature children. I was never happy in school. The amount of drama there was in every part of that school, students and teachers, was ridiculous. I always cringe when people ask where I went to highschool, I am a sophomore in college right now. The students are divided, teachers play hard favorites, the dress code was never enforced on the boys, and I never saw a female faculty member enforce the dress code, onkly the men. The clubs barely have any funding and have around 5-10 members each, if even. School spirit was a joke. If you weren't on the sports teams, and I was for a couple years, no one cares about you so in return you don't care about the school. Pep rally was sad and boring. The nurse was rude and didn't care. I was sent back to class after vomiting 3 times in the nurses office...
