School Reviews

  • Recommended April 14, 2014 - This school is spectacular- words cant describe how amazing it is. The teachers are incredibly serious in their job, but manage to make it fun and easy to comprehend. It is a very challenging school, but that just makes you want to work harder and become the best that you can be! The students there are great too! Extremely kind, and welcoming. No cliques like the average public school, nobody cares about popularity or anything like that. Just pure friendship. The after school activities are as well stellar. There are tons of music groups, which are truly best of the best. The sports are fun and including, track, cross country, basketball, dance team (my favorite!), etc. There is also a lot of clubs, and you can start your own club too! The fact that the lunches are extra long, there is break, study hall during and after school, just makes this school even better. If you are looking into this school- just know its amazing. Couldn''t have anything better than Heronfield Academy. Oh- and before I forget- this school also serves not only New Hampshire, but Massachusetts and Maine as well. - Posted by Student/Alumni
