    "I had a good time, made friends, and learned a lot. Those who let sweeping generalizations dictate their high school experience only have themselves to fault. You can avoid stress by learning to control your emotions, and the school contains a good population of thoughtful people who don't embrace stereotypical Scarsdalian values. The resources are all there; all you have to do is seek them out. Navigating Scarsdale's social and academic scenes has taught me countless invaluable lessons about what I value. I will say, though, that there is more the administration could do to discourage stress and encourage better behavior (as many complain in this forum, advisors have a knack for blaming stress on families and not their own policies; and athletes are rarely held accountable for their actions.) Despite this fault, the quality of education I've gotten here is superb. I had some wonderful, caring teachers, took some fantastic classes, and though I may have cursed the gods when I had three essays to write over the course of one weekend, college has been so much easier after completing such a rigorous curriculum. And senior options was a blast."

    "Incredible school district. Unbelieveable placement to colleges and universities. One of the best public schools in the nation."

    "I am a SHS graduate and did very well. I went on to an ivy. but, my time at Scarsdale high was very damaging to me. The school is too competitive and is full of bratty and spoiled rich jewish kids. There is almost no diversity. Academically, I felt that I was not as prepared for college as other students were. Leaving Scarsdale and moving into a diverse community was such a breath of fresh air!"

    "Scarsdale high school is a legend in its own mind. Their education programs look good on paper, but professors who review their curriculum tend to be shocked in a negative way. They forecast children will be swamped with stess and discouraged from learning purely from the curriculum. That's exactly what happened to my son."

    "Scarsdale is a little too expensive and expects a little way too much from its students that it undermines the school system. For instance their alternative school is a cross section of the ENTIRE high school. Alternative schools are for students who are at risk academically for an array of reasons; it should never be for most students. If Scarsdale wants to experiment teaching approaches, do it on your own time, not on the student's time. If you want a reasonable education and still have some diversity, go to Great Neck. This school is not at all spectacular, as it does not offer any full-inclusion programs for individuals with mental retardation. It also does not have an inclusion policy for the rest of the students with disabilities."
