    "The teachers at Blue Hills Regional are passionate at what they do. I wouldn't have made it through my 4 years in high school without the amazing teachers at my school."

    "Blue Hills is an amazing school to attend because you get the best of both worlds because you get to learn a vocation half the weeks and the other half you get to learn in regular classes. I would attend this school over again if i could because I built some of the best relationships with the teachers and students."

    "I say that any and every kid going into high school should look into what a vocational school has to offer. Take a tour. Meet the teachers and students. Look into the different shops and see how many options you have. Don't forget to remember your academic courses too, there tends to be a smaller selection on what courses to take. But if you have an interest in a skill, such as art and design like me or carpentry or culinary arts or auto body and repair, you may feel more at home here. I have my second home with my shop, Design and Visual Communications, and I don't regret anything. It has helped me get a job for my last summer before college as a graphic designers, it has allowed me to learn more about something I have always had a passion for and I have perfected my skills. I honestly don't want to work in the design field, but I have always been a huge fan of it and I would have made my choices all over again. So don't feel pressured to pick something you want to do for work if you aren't too sure, just pick a shop that you love and enjoy. It will make your high school experience so much better. Just remember to have an open mind, let yourself grow, and make sure you do what makes you happy. Living a happy life is more important than being in a job that makes you a lot of money but you hate."

    "A vocational school has pros and cons. A kid first hears people say that there is class every other week, switching out with your shop, and thinks it'll be amazing. There are less courses to take and fewer high level courses to add onto a college application, I won't lie, that part isn't really too great if you are a person who tends to be in all honors courses. But you leave the school with a skill that may help you get a job, you are usually OSHA certified by the end of sophomore year, and you get used to learning hands on and you get a feel for a work-like environment. I have noticed that the teachers are much more understanding and caring too. They know you are working towards having a career and so they respect you more and think of you as an adult, not a child. If you struggle, there is always a teacher willing to help. If you have work, they may stay after school when it seems more convenient or even welcome you into their classroom during shop week. And shop is amazing. You get to try out eight of them and then take your pick, choosing your top three choices. Over the years,your shop turns into a second home and your classmates turn into your family. I have been so lucky to end up with such a great group in my shop (Design and Visual Communications) and I know everyone will find their own family here too. Oh, I almost forgot to mention Co-Op. At the end of your junior year, you can apply for Co-Op, working instead of going to school during shop week. It is a wonderful opportunity to get some work experience in a field you may continue to work in and it will help you save up money for college, a car, whatever you may save for. Anyways, I had a pretty great experience here and I think that this school is so much better for some kids than a traditional high school is. So please, just go and take a tour during open house. Meet the teachers and students and see all the different things you could do someday. You could go and you might even enjoy high school."
