Throughout my 4 years at Stonington High school, I loved alot of aspects about this school. The facility was very well kept and there were plenty of sports fields which was awesome for an athlete such as myself. However, coming from such a small town it was disheartening to see that administration would not punish or reprimand students who's parents had a large reputation in the town, or if they were well respected athletes within the school. There also could have been more variety in class types so that people could focus more on areas of interest instead of a bunch of gen-eds.
A small school with great academics but very strict admin. Location is great, teachers are wonderful if you do your work, classes are well-organized and I definitely was prepared for college with awesome guidance counselors but it tended to feel very dark and prison-like, as most high schools do.
