As a senior, I believe my experience at Souhegan High School has been excellent. I was new to the community my freshman year of high school and was positively overwhelmed with opportunities the first day I walked through the doors. The Souhegan Faculty create a welcoming environment in students which create a great amount of student involvement. I like how Souhegan has almost every club under the sun and are also very adaptable to new clubs that are student-run. Although diversity is poor, the community does a great job of having students connect with other communities. The faculty and administration truly does try to connect with the students and know everyone. Souhegan has lots of opportunities but students need to look for them! Overall, I could not imagine going anywhere else.

My four years at Souhegan flew by! I do have to say the staff here are all endearing, caring people who do really want the best for all students. It is a small institution with less than 800 students, so there is a strong sense of community and inclusivity. For me personally, the guidance department was always there for me and very accessible. I think some improvements could include improving the school's infrastructure as the interior has seen better days, and improving funding for the arts, music, and theatre departments and less on athletics.
Honestly, on my first day of 9th grade, I was skeptical about the school. I had always thought that high school would be like movies, mean teachers, bullies, and bad grades. But when I first walked in the atmosphere was welcoming and I felt excited to be there. While at Souhegan High School, I have always had amazing experiences with the teachers and staff, I feel supported and they continue to help as I grow. My grades have improved since starting high school and I mostly have my teachers and peers to thank. Souhegan is great at pulling together its students to build each other up and create a helpful learning environment. This school has also given me so many opportunities to try new things. I have joined so many new sports and clubs that helped me meet so many great people along the way. The only thing I would change is the class selection I typically get all the classes I want but there's chance you get an alternate. Overall I feel lucky and proud to attend Souhegan High School.
