Souhegan High School really prepared me for college. With a trusting environment, students are able to go about campus freely just like one is able to do at college. From a great sports culture to amazing architecture within the buildings, the school really gives students all it can. The greatest thing that stood out to me from my years there was the student teacher relations, at so many other high schools, students are scared or concerned to speak with their teachers about problems within the class or about things in their personal life. But at Souhegan, there is a bond between students and teachers like no other, teachers and students are treated with respect and both parties learn to genuinely care about the other. I believe that that truely is what makes the school so amazing and different from any other high school.
Souhegan High School mainly fosters independent learning throughout all grades. We call our teachers by their first names to eliminate the teacher-student boundaries that are formed in our middle school. Our staff wants us to feel comfortable with going to them about anything; school, social life and more. We do try to create a community feel within our school. Overall, I enjoyed my experience at Souhegan and I learned a lot from there.
