Flashback Friday: NMHS By Michaela Chu


Flashback back to NMHS in the 1990’s!

Hard to believe but at one point in time New Milford High School didn’t have any computers. Many computer rooms, like room 336 and 337, were just class rooms in the 90’s. Room 240 was always a computer lab and still to this day is.  It is one of 3.

Back in the 90’s NMHS did not provide their students with the charging stations we have today.

Today we are so used to having a phone in the classroom but every classrooms’ phone was connected back up to the speaker/clock. So everyone in the classroom would hear what you were talking about on the phone.

The cafeteria is still exactly the same. Same tables, same chairs, same stage, even the same food.

The Lance existed back then, except it was printed out on paper instead of being on the internet. Today everything that we have on the internet was on paper back in the 90’s! Crazy, right! Today who could imagine anything NOT being on the internet.

Today in some classes the teachers encourage students to use their smart phone. (Only for educational purposes.)

Online homework like study island didn’t exist. Who would LOVE to not have study island exist?!  I wish I was back in NMHS when Study Island wasn’t even thought of! That would be wonderful and less stressful for me.

Many things have changed, but have also stayed the same within the school. It’s still filled with great administrators and teachers that do great at their job! Along, with the killer school spirit that still lives within the high school!
