    "The academics at Dobbs Ferry High School are alright. The IB program is extremely beneficial, as we learn to think differently and to see multiple viewpoints to a subject. A lot of the teachers here are great too, but there are some that really need to be let go. While they have tenure (meaning it's very difficult to get them fired), some of the tenured teachers simply don't care, and still perform the job simply for a paycheck."

    "A lot of the teachers at Dobbs Ferry High School generally care about their jobs, and want nothing more than to see their students succeed. Most are very approachable and kind, and are open to offering any extra help a student may need. However, some teachers are still sticking with their jobs for the paycheck. They truly do not care and just do the bare minimum to collect their cash at the end of the day, instead of taking the extra step to make sure their students have retained the material."

    "My overall experience at DFHS has led me to believe that the administrators and staff are not very helpful to the students. They try and do things that make the school look best and not do what is best for the students. The reason I did not give the school a terrible rating is because on some rare occasions the teachers have proven me wrong. The amount of effort some of the teachers at DFHS put in to help students really shows that they care; and their effort makes up for most of the problems at DFHS."

    "DFHS is a really nice school. The teachers are really great, with most of them being very accommodating and helpful, wanting you to do your best. I'm not crazy about how big the school is on sports, as I'm an art student."

    "I generally have had a great experience with all of my teachers. Definitely better relationships that worse. They care that we understand the curriculum and work with us if we do not. We have a great teacher-student relationships simply because we are a small school, where each teacher has the opportunity to know each of their students. I can only think f 3 teachers that students complain about, and the two that I have had I enjoyed having them."
