My experience with Ardsley High School has always been positive and enriching. The school has an amazing atmosphere and the student body is very accepting of people from all backgrounds and lifestyles. I feel that Ardsley schools excel at giving students a variety of clubs, sports, and class opportunities to choose from. Although Ardsley students are very open to those of other ethnicities, the school as a whole tends to lack having a lot of diversity. Also, because of the highly competitive environment, students that fall in average or below average areas tend to feel high amounts of academic pressure. This occurs especially because of the fact that the school seems to put the pressure of college onto the students all at once rather than allowing it to develop over time and prepare them sooner. Teachers in general tend to be very supportive of students, allowing them to develop an important trust and connection with them.
As a current student of Ardsley High School, I have been studying there since September of 2017. After a quick year of studying in the city, moving into the suburbs, I was able to experience a very different environment and its uniqueness in general. Ardsley High School is a very competitive school, with students obsessively talking about grades and getting A's and where sport goes hand-in-hand with academics. 90% of the students that I have come across are usually affiliated with a sport. This sheer determination of students wanting to compete against one another and get into a better college is what sets apart Ardsley High School from the rest.Being a small school, it also is a very friendly community with amazing teachers, some who have very high education backgrounds, to help you all-day long. Students themselves are very caring and open to new people and it definitely feels like a second home for me. It is the best school for someone who wishes to be competitive and successful.
