I grew up in this district and spent my whole life in Boonville. I’m quiet and have been bullied a lot, the school has been no help with that. School counselors are never there and the office is no help. The school is awful for special needs children, as my family member with autism is treated with little to no respect. There is very little diversity within both the students and the staff. The food is bad and most days I go without lunch because of this. This school is all about last names and the loud obnoxious kids. There are very little clubs and extracurricular options. The only reason why I will give this school 2 stars is because there some teachers who actually care, like the foreign language department. Other than that, I am more than happy to leave.

Adirondack has played a big role in my life, not only academically but also socially. I have never had a solid ground to stand on, people to trust, and teachers and other faculty members care about my well-being, and also my academics. Our school environment is very different compared to others, such as; we get along with each other, support and love another. I am sure that I can vouch as a majority of our school members (students and faculty) there is nothing more proud of say than, "I am a wildcat."
Over all, Adirondack Central School District has never let me down. I will always be proud to call myself an Adirondack Wildcat. To me being a wildcat is more than just a stupid school mascot, it's painting our faces green and white, and dressing in our school colors on Homecoming night to support our fellow football players. It's creating that bond with teachers and students that will never be broken.
Adirondack High School has many nice and supportive teachers who are ready to help their students in any way they can and will work hard to inspire their students. There are a couple poor teachers, but in this case the good outweigh the bad. However, the school is very slow when it comes to making changes within the school.
