Southington High School offered a great high school experience with excellent opportunities both academically and extra curricular activities. There were so many AP classes to choose from and 90% of students taking the AP tests at SHS scored high enough for their prospective colleges to accept those credits toward college classes. Activities included the award winning state champion SHS Blue Knights Marching Band, excellent Theater productions and wonderful foreign language program offering the Italian club to travel to Italy!
There is so many things I like about SHS. I loved the sports program! I played 4 years of varsity soccer, indoor track and outdoor track. I love the support the sports programs receive and the fans are the best! I love how many of the teachers became my friend. They always took the extra step to be there for their students. The friends I had that made my time atbSHS so memorable!
If I had to change anything I might change the size. Currently there areniver 2,200 students. That is larger than some colleges.
