    "An alumni of NCHS who valued her education deeply. Send your kids there if you are considering it, just as valuable of an education as any private school in the area."

    "I am addressing the review written 4 yrs ago from a disgruntled student who attended NCPS. The individual called the drama dept., "slimy." New Canaan is an affluent community; parents afford dancing, singing, & theatre classes for their children from a young age. By the time these kids get to NCHS their talents are extremely honed, & the theater awards this school receives proves it! However, my own talented daughter found herself to be "a small fish in a big pond," but the drama teacher finds a place for every kid. My daughter worked on the set, props, lighting, stage direction, etc. By the time she graduated high school, she knew she wanted to be a production stage manager on Broadway & is currently a soph. in college pursuing a BFA and her dream. For the talented students who perform at NCPS, the competition IS difficult - Just like life! However, they learn about themselves & each other in the safe & supportive environment of a benevolent drama coach who is part teacher, mentor, therapist, & mom to these kids. This woman saved my daughter & gave her focus, passion, & a wonderful work ethic. How is a program like that "slimy"? Shakespeare said, "to thy own self be true.""

    "I attended New Canaan High School and I affirm that it is a superior school. I often complained about how hard some of the classes were, but the rigorous academic programs have enhanced my life more than I could have fathomed at the time. As a future parent, I'm having a hard time finding a high school with comparable credentials in my new state of residence. If you're wondering whether or not to attend this school or send your teenager there, I would highly recommend it. My biggest complaints are the lack of windows in classrooms, how political and slimy the drama program is, and the weird, complicated schedule that I never wasted time memorizing, but at least it fashions the pretense of variety in life."
