    "The education was statistically very good, but it only benefitted the "book smart" kids. I got bullied heavily in this school administration did not do much in Middle School but by high school the problem was eradicated."

    "Niskayuna is a great academic school with teachers who want to help you. It is one of the best schools in New York State. Only bad thing for a high school student is that the area can be boring and the school does not have the closest knit student body. Everyone tends to do their own thing."

    "The teachers are usually very enthusiastic about the material they are teaching, and strive to make sure you are learning the material and understanding it well."

    "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."
