Stoughton High School Reviews

I graduated from Stoughton High School in 2019. If I was writing this review as a high school student or even shortly after, it probably would've been very different. In my opinion SHS's strengths lied within the diversity, diversity acceptance and spread (from teachers), college readiness, curriculum and school safety. I feel like they prepared me enough for higher education, I just should've put more effort in. The school's weaknesses are mainly within the administration. The administration would sometimes make rules and end up failing to follow through. In my opinion, Stoughton High was a pretty good school, just like any it had its faults. Although I would choose to redo my time at SHS to the best of my ability as well as advantage. Schools are often overlooked, but I feel like SHS provided support when and where needed over time. If there was anything, I loved about SHS it would be the curriculum. I feel like that is was sets Stoughton High apart from other institutions as well.

I love Stoughton High Schools strive for excellence. All the students here are always looking to better themselves and their community. The teachers are all caring and so are all faculty members. Students are for the most part kind and intelligent. We received a new high school in 2019 and it is absolutely beautiful!
I'm in 11th grade at the moment, and I've had the best time so far. I'm at a public school, but its really good and there are heaps of good opportunities. The friends and relationships I 've made will never be forgotten and the people are actually really nice. Also, the subjects you can do, you would be surprised the range there is to choose from, there is something for everyone!! And the camps, excursions, special events and other opportunities such as exchanges with schools from other states is the best. Sport is also one of the best parts of high school too, but even if you are not into it, music and art programs are generally really good. This is the best year as we walked into new building Stoughton High School.
I would say "Be yourself, get out there and enjoy"!!
