Merrimack Valley High School has implemented a “Networks Program” that is designed to foster relationships while promoting a positive school culture. Meeting on a weekly basis for 15-25 minutes, the Networks Program is made up of students from two different grade levels. In addition to these students, a small number of seniors are also assigned to each Network group so as to expose and acclimate underclassmen to the senior project journey. The philosophical pillars of the MVHS Networks Program strive to encourage social connections, empathy, teamwork, open-mindedness, and respect.
