East Kingston Elementary School (EKES) and Swasey Central School (SCS) have been selected as Partnership Schools with the Department of Education at the University of New Hampshire (UNH). Starting in the fall of 2014, SCS will join EKES which already participates in this partnership that provides seven or eight UNH graduate school interns to work in the school for a full year. This program is designed to prepare future teachers while providing additional adult support in the elementary schools.
This year students from the Seacoast School of Technology (SST) have been accepted at more than 135 colleges or universities and six branches of the US military. SST prides itself on preparing students to be “career and college ready” and this expansive display of college acceptances underscores this particular preparation. Some of the colleges or universities to which students have been accepted include Clarkson University, DePaul University, Eckerd College, James Madison University, Northeastern University, Purdue University, Stonehill College, Temple University, and the University of Alabama.
