This school has pretty good academics and teachers. Also there are many electives, AP classes, and creative clubs in all subjects. This schools handles bullying very well too and is taken care of immediately. This school looks appealing on the outside but the history wing is filled with toxic mold that smells. A flood occurred in September 2015 and the school never did any remedial or anything too stupid to even think about the amount of water damage. Now people have health issues in the building because of it and the administration refuses to believe there's mold or do any proper testing.

Averill Park is generally pretty open-minded and accepting socially, especially for a small-town school in upstate NY. However, it's mostly white kids, and the school puts much more emphasis on the importance of sports than on music and the arts.
My school has some good points and some bad ones. The students recently started to fight almost every day, which makes the environment feel tense. Our drama club has had problems because of the adviser. However, we started receiving new clubs, and more students are getting involved. My school also serves the needs of different studies, based on disability and gender identity. My school was very accepting when I came out as transgender, and helped me maneuver through issues like bathroom and locker room situations. My school takes care of students that are different and never excludes them.
