I absolutely adore Yarmouth Highschool. Not only does it allow students multiple opportunities, but it also provides a way for students to be determined with the academically rigorous classes. Everything in this school is excellent, not to mention the amazing, quiet location. Yarmouth High school recently just won the Blue Ribbon Award as well, for being an amazing school. Athletics in Yarmouth is very good and allows students to become close to one another. We've won state champions in many different sports for many years. I find the diversity to be very wholesome here, and everybody is nice to one another.

Yarmouth High School fits the town of Yarmouth perfectly. The school offers several contributions to the community and encourages the growth of students. Likewise, the community gets around the school. Yet, there is a growing sense of discomfort between the administration and the student body. Despite this adverse relationship, students will still be able to complete all of their work and achieve success.
I think that Yarmouth High School is very academically challenging and offers a lot of high quality extra curriculars to prepare you for college, but this also comes with a lot of pressures on the students to succeed. College is the main focus all four years, and that can cause a lot of stress. Overall, the teachers are caring and good at their jobs and they want you to succeed. There are many opportunities to build your resume, but it can come with a lot of pressure.
