Senior: Incredible teachers, the most amazing experiences, and a very tight-knit peer group all make PVCICS an incredible choice for any student. There is a great deal of diversity of interests in the class -- students hoping to become neurosurgeons, fashion designers, experimental physicists -- and everyone brings a unique personality to the classroom. Because of the student:faculty ratio, classes are fairly small, so these personalities are each appreciated to an even greater extent!
The IB program is also a hugely important aspect of the school, and it provides a very rigorous education that many colleges have a great deal of respect for.

Senior: I've been attending Monson Schools for the past 12 years and it hasn't been a terrible experience. I've known the same people over these years and not much has changed. In middle school my grade had about 90 students, and when we transitioned into the high school, we lost almost 30 students to other schools in the surrounding area. Now we have about 60 students, so it's very small. Our diversity rate is also very low, so there isn't much culture. But overall, the education and classes are helpful and somewhat strong.

Senior: My experience at the high school of Commerce has been challenging yet exciting and full of amazement at the same time. After my first year as a full International Baccalaureate candidate, I was the first student to ever maintain straight A’s in this challenging program. I was able to establish clubs where students could share their voices and develop an essential impact with their communities through a debate club. I was able to speak to the city mayor and flatter him with all of the improvements and successes that my school has been striving to pursue in front of hundreds of individuals from the school district. I had been filmed in a documentary for the Springfield Public School channel regarding my personal opinion of stereotypes and judgments specifically in the High School of Commerce. This school has offered me a collection of opportunities that I would have never encountered if I were else where.
