Triton High School is a community that values independence while engaging students in connected learning to foster an environment that demands respect for self and others. We are committed to helping students become responsible for their own learning by providing them with opportunities to develop relevant 21st Century skills as they begin careers, pursue college, and contribute to their communities. We believe students should be able to read and write effectively, communicate ideas appropriately through a variety of platforms, and create and problem solve independently and collaboratively.
Have great summer. See you back at school September 3, 2019.
Triton Students Dance across France!
Fifteen Triton High School students will be immersing themselves in French culture and language as they take off for the second leg of their exchange with students from the Lycée Saint François d’Assise in La Roche Sur Yon, France:
Students will spend four days in Paris visiting the Versailles Castle, the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, and other monuments. They will have a try at French cuisine, and even visit a perfumerie! After that, they will travel to the Loire Country to stay with their French families and visit the region. To follow Triton adventures in France, check out the news section of the exchange website here:
The students in Mrs. Kuleszka’s F period class wrote a paper and created slides to solicit clients to go on a vacation. They were conducting themselves as vacation planners. The students were able to choose their own destination. They needed to highlight the points of interest, adventures and costs of the vacation.
The Triton Voice is currently ranked 31st out of 3,000 of the best student news websites in the nation. They are close to earning a new badge for social media pesence which will boost this rank considerably. We ask that all students consider following @TritonVoice on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to help them reach their goal.
Mrs. Norton’s combined A and D period robotics classes. A period in a Cornhole robotics competition while D period in a MarioKart race robot competition. Well done!
Featured here are students in Mr. Horsley’s AP Environmental Science course. Throughout the year, students consider ecosystem functioning and interdependence, assess the human impact on these natural systems, and analyze behavior/policy changes that could reduce our overall impact. Currently students are conducting independent research on nonrenewable and renewable energy sources in preparation for a debate. Today’s debate features two teams, one supporting solar energy as a valid sustainable energy source, and a second team, arguing against solar energy. The students receive follow-up questions from their teacher/peers. Additionally, their peers cast their vote as to which team was most persuasive and informative, ultimately winning the debate. This debate series is taken very seriously, and students put forth a great deal of effort to bet ready!
This week the journalism classes are launching student-made podcasts on our website. One will be posted on the site each day for the next few weeks. The first is an article, podcast, and video from junior Sam Bell about the 20th anniversary of the NES theater program.If you get a chance, take a listen: https://tritonvoice.

On Thursday, April 4th, students from the junior class attended the National College Fair at the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston. Our vikings had a chance to meet with admission representatives from hundreds of domestic and international colleges and universities. Students learned of the application process, financial aid, acceptance history, majors and minors, and many scholarship opportunities. Juniors returned from the trip feeling more informed about the many choices that await in higher education.
Beginning in 2016, Triton Environmental Science students have been doing their part to fight the good fight against sea level rise by working to restore valuable sand dune habitat in Salisbury and Newbury. Sand dunes form a unique habitat type along our shores, and whether we realize it or not, they provide some serious and direct benefits! Besides supporting a unique plant and animal community, sand dunes serve as a potent barrier, taking the brunt of the now more frequent and more severe winter storms hitting our community each year. University of New Hampshire professors Dr. Gregg Moore and Dr. David Burdick have been conducting research on the formation and restoration of sand dunes for many years, and Triton’s Environmental Science teacher, Mr. Horsley, reached out and volunteered his classes to participate in their annual dune restoration efforts. Fast forward to 2019, and the annual efforts have tripled! Students have the opportunity to engage in real conservation work along side UNH as they restore the dunes that protect families within our district! The dune restoration project has been an incredibly rewarding program for all parties involved and we look forward to UNH’s call next year!
The Viking Day of Giving was a huge success. It will not take you long, walking around the building, to see all of the hard work over 100 of our students, a dozen staff and a handful of community members did Friday and Saturday to spruce up our school. #tritonpride
