"I am a current senior at this school, and I am very satisfied with my experience. It is very diverse, and while this is sometimes a source of conflict, the administration handles it very well. Fights and violence have gone down noticeably since I arrived here, and Mr. Catrillo is doing a very good job with running the school. Most of my classes have been good experiences, and a motivated student will find ways to challenge him or herself. It would be nice if there were more AP classes offered, but Intependent Study is always an option. Extracurricular activities are very good, there is quite literally something for everyone: Multicultural Affairs, Green Team, Physics Club, you name it. Overall, a very good school, and I am definitely glad I spent my four high school years here."
"My son will be starting the 5th Grade, we have a long way before he reaches the 9th Grade. The school has shown alot of progress academically since we moved here. I hope that they continue to excel in Academics , Athletics and Arts throughout the years. I am very please with the choice I made to move to this school district. Coming from New York, I can already see advantages for my kids and improvement in their development. Hoping the school comtinue to offer wide choices of Electives and programs. I am very impressed."
"If your child struggles in school, these teachers don't want to put extra effort in. They gave my child an IEP that allows him extra time for tests, and may leave the class if the teacher would allow it, to go for help. However, all this did was enable my child to use his IEP to slack off and use it as an excuse not to do well and put in extra effort. In the real world, at a college, trade shcool or in the workforce, nobody is going to be there to hold your hand. You have to work hard and he learned the opposite at school. He just barely graduated."
"My child just completed his first year of high school and had a terrific freshman year. For any child who is motivated and comes to school to learn, the opportunities are many -- AP classes, extracurriculars, vo-tech specialties."
"We have had children in this school district for 14 years and overall have been pleased. Best high school available in Monroe County (and the school board has utilized property taxes in a more responsible manner than in some nearby districts). The new high school building is beautiful, the course offerings extensive, and programs for academically gifted students substantial. Many students have gone on to receive full academic scholarships at ivy-league or comparably competitive colleges. Very active extracurriculars, many non-athletic, such as FBLA, Speech & Debate, NHS, musical productions/theater. State-renowned music program (band / chorus). Diverse student body. Many top-notch teachers and coaches. Yes, there are some teachers who ought to retire but that is a weakness of any public school system. We have so far found this school administration to, overall, be responsive to any issues."
