    "My four years at Niskayuna High School were easily the best four of my life thus far. The only problem that people have with it is that the students are extremely competitive, which isn't necessary a bad thing. The teachers cannot get much better; they truly care about their students, and they definitely prepare kids for college and beyond. Niskayuna sends kids to top schools year after year, and they create some of the world's most successful scientists, businessmen, etc. The sports team consistently do well, but there is still a slight lack of school spirit surrounding sports. Very few high schoolers will cry on their final days of high school, but I did which I think shows how much I loved it there and how much it meant to me."

    "I want to see more focus on students and who they are as human beings rather than the test scores and grades they give. I want to see more control over our students as well."

    "It's a good school, simply put. The classes are challenging, but everyone in the building wants you to succeed. There is an emphasis on college preparation, AP exams, SAT scores, etc. Kids here are preparing themselves for the Ivy League, and as such can be rather competitive. Our music and science departments are unlike any other, and we are one of the few secondary institutions that still has a large amount of funding for the arts/"

    "Good school. Can be a bit clicky but the education and the offerings are great! Teachers are helpful."

    "It's a pretty good school. The academics are top notch, and teachers are willing to help, for the most part. Predominantly white, but diversity has been getting better over the past few years. Lack of school spirit that they've been trying to fit, but no one seems to get pumped unless it's for a lacrosse game or for the musical. Definitely a lot more college-oriented than other schools in the area, but no matter what your high school is like, college is a whole different ball game that will cause some level of surprise and necessary transition time. One of the better schools in the region."
