Students from the Region 8 public school area of Connecticut, which includes Marlborough and Andover, attend the school. There are 96 teachers, for a 1:12 teacher to student ratio.[4]

Overview[edit]

RHAM is an acronym for “Regional Hebron, Andover, and Marlborough,” the three towns that comprise the State of Connecticut’s Regional School District No. 8. The Region 8 School District was formed and ground broken for the first school building in 1956. Classes started on September 6, 1957.

In 1970, an addition was completed which provided the technology education wing, the art area, a new library, and an auxiliary gymnasium and locker room facility. In 1984, a second renovation of the high school facility began and was subsequently completed in the fall of 1985.

In July 2000 ground was broken for the current High School, which was opened in March 2003. This new school includes many different facilities. There is a clay outdoor track field, three multipurpose fields, tennis courts, two baseball fields, and a softball field. The hockey team skates out of Champions Skating Center in Cromwell, CT.

The school colors are blue and gold, and the athletic teams are known as the Sachems, the name of Native American Indian Chiefs of the Algonquin tribe.
