As a recent graduate of Housatonic, I can't say enough great things. Housatonic offers a tremendous amount of opportunity for students who are willing to take advantage of it. I found it amazing the ability to be involved in such a variety of things. A single student could be a part of musical theater and electric car and Envirothon and Night choir, all while playing a varsity sport. The same opportunity applied to the classroom as well. I felt that teachers at Housatonic were always willing to help you. I really loved was the ability (and encouragement) to go to any teacher in a specific department for help. You were not limited to just your teacher when it came to resources but rather had the ability to reach out to anyone in that department. When it comes down to it, high school is what you make of it, and every high school has its pros and cons. If you are willing to put in the work and want to take advantage of every opportunity that comes your way, you will do wonders here.
