I came into Stoughton High School as a sophomore from another state and my previous high school proved to be far inferior in comparison with Stoughton High School in my experience. Many of the teachers and any other staff I encountered were kind and willing to help us with anything within their capabilities. Many of the teachers I had actively engaged with students during the class period rather than simply lecturing at us. Many were also open to suggestions from students regarding class work and the structure of the class period. Overall, I had a pleasant experience at Stoughton High School.

I liked my experience there, but I feel as though they didn't help me prepare for college as much as they could have. I recently was enrolled in MATC for their CNA program and doing that college course was way different than how we did high school. I expected differences of course, but it seemed as though I was just thrown in rather than guided into the college. I feel as though the school could better prepare us by formatting tests differently, having different methods of teaching and also having a better curriculum.
I like that Stoughton High School Student Senate offers RSVP (Raising Student Voice and Participation). It is a great program, and twice each year the senators visit classes and ask the student body what they would like to see changed. In the past, RSVP has contributed to our school numbering the parking spaces, remodeling the locker rooms, installing water bottle fillers, and adding two extra microwaves to our lunchroom.
