I thought it was overall pretty good, I thought it prepared me well for college. I was involved in a variety of sports teams there and made a lot of lasting friendships. Most of my teachers were helpful and went above and beyond to see that me and my classmates were successful. Overall I am proud of the high school that I went to, and am glad it prepared me for my time in college.
It's a really good school but when you have problems guidance and administration really doesn't do much to help.
Nauset High provided me with so many different class opportunities both academically and artistically. Nauset has a great music program, art program. and sports program.
What I love is the open campus, walking to different buildings. It makes it seem like a college atmosphere which readies students for the type of campus that colleges offer.
I love our faculty, the Principal and teachers are wonderful. We have four towns that are within our district, so we have a diversified school environment and get to know kids from other towns, not just our own.
Nauset High School has given me the best four years of high school on cape cod. The teachers are kind, caring, and considerate, the academic life is competitive and driving, and the school spirit is off the charts. They have certainly prepared me well for the future!
What stands out about Nauset is its charming open campus, and location in the National Seashore range. Another factor which I really enjoy is Nauset is composed of multiple towns, so you get to meet people from all over the Cape.
I think that Nauset needs to have better clubs and sports programs that are more accepting of other students.
Overall amazing school, with teacher's that are dedicated to help you succeeded . For the most part, everyone is pretty inclusive. The sports team are like an extension of your family.
I only went to Nauset High school for two years, but I have such a great experience there. The people were nice and there were so many opportunities to take art classes. The classes that were provided were interesting and engaging. The teachers were all kind of fun.
The school has a beautiful campus less than a mile from the ocean. The students are very nice and understanding, for highschoolers. The teachers are quality.
Nauset is an amazing school that offers so many great opportunities from a variety of clubs and extracurriculars to specialized learning and tutoring. The school really values the idea that every child matters. You never feel like you are unappreciated at Nauset.
I went to Nauset Regional High School for four years and enjoyed it for the most part. What I found especially enjoyable was that there seemed to be no cliques, no "popular kids" or "geeks," only friends. Everyone supported each other and helped each other when in need- with a few exceptions.
The bad part was the lack of emotional support from the guidance counselors. The few times there was an issue, they would be of no help. If I could change anything, it would be to have the counselors be of a better help to the students.
Nauset is a great school and really prepares you for college learning. I still use some of my notes from high school in college today. Making friends is easy and everyone knows everyone. Even the teachers will work hard to create a bond with their students that will last outside of high school.
I really love the teachers at Nauset. Every teacher I have had has encouraged me to grow both as a human being and a student. I am very proud to say my teachers have acted as mentors for me within my four years. However, the amount of homework assigned is exhausting. I understand taking AP or Honors courses leads to a exhausting homework session, yet I would love to see more balance with assignments in the future.
Nauset High School was amazingly supportive to my daughter. We were so happy to have made the decision to move to Brewster just so she could be part of the Nauset School System! It was the definite right decision. We could not have been happier! We would do it again in a second! Teachers and all support staff were wonderful. SWS program was amazing!!
My experience at NRHS was amazing! There were so many incredible opportunities, especially with extra curriculars. We have a sport of nearly everyone and at least 2 clubs for everyone. The atmosphere is also very accepting to those who are different which I loved!
For me the acceptance wasn't great from the other students or from the sports coaches
Sports was my main after school activity
