Class at the Court event. The trip, held in partnership with UNH in an effort to introduce students to college at a young age, turns the school’s basketball court into a classroom, as students learn about math and fractions using basketball. Students worked with UNH basketball players throughout the day, visited areas on campus, and met professors. They were also treated to lunch and a basketball game.

5 WHHS seniors to spend semester at UNH
A group of five West Haven High School seniors will spend the spring semester taking classes at the University of New Haven after being accepted into the UNH Outstanding High School Senior Program. The students--Jesus Yanez, Sarah Flynn, Timothy Arcadapani, Angela Riehl and Jakub Grubski--will still participate in WHHS senior activities, but will be enrolled in four UNH classes. This year's group is the largest ever accepted for OHSSP, as typically, two Westies are selected for the program annually. The students will take the classes at no cost as part of OHSSP.
