Teachers are awesome. A wide variety of extracurricular clubs, sports, and activities are offered. The Music, band, chorus program is phenomenal. Communication is not the strong suit- so families should do their research so they don’t miss out!

Scituate High School was a great experience for me. It has dedicated faculty members and administrators who passionately strive to maximize each student's potential. As a public school, they consistently place graduates into some of the very best universities across the country. My only problem with the school is the lack of diversity within the student body. Fortunately, I was able to broaden my horizons through athletics and extracurricular activities, but I would have appreciated a more diverse culture in the day to day setting within the school.
Scituate High gives students a lot freedom and leisure while making sure they get a good education and are ready for their future. The teachers are always going out of their way to help the students and the relationships the students make with the teachers are unlike anywhere else. the teachers are very friendly and know how to create bonds with students in between being a teacher and a friend. the campus is pretty average for a high school, yet the fields and surrounding outdoor activities make the campus fairly large
