This high school was built about 4 years before (1992) I started attending. It was considered an “alternative” school, with less emphasis on repetition and testing and more in class participation and discussion. Rules were covered with a broad “Souhegan Six” that encouraged a higher moral philosophy. The problem with this is that these are kids who don’t necessarily embody enough moral principle to embrace. The other problem is that while discussion is great, there is required material to get through. At this slower analytical pace, less material is covered.
