Cicero-North Syracuse high school is a large school filled with unique students. The staff values their students education and I loved the increased school spirt between the students throughout my 3 years here. There’s plenty of different classes and electives you can choose from, so you can get an aspect from many subjects if you choose. Opportunities are endless for you to take part in, whether it comes down to clubs, sports, jobs or any other after school activities. Class sizes are a bit large, but that doesn’t stop you from making many new friends and teacher connections like I did. This high school continues to expand academically, in which I’m happy to see how far they’ve come in the future.

I had some very good teachers that really made it a great experience to have taken their classes. I feel there were a lot of individual clicks. There are a lot of clubs you can get involved in. I myself am not involved in sports but there is a lot of opportunities if you are. I think academically, if you are a motivated student, there are many courses and programs you can take to very well prepare you for college. My counselor was very helpful to me. Overall, I had a good experience. My favorite year was my senior year because I was involved in an OCM BOCES New Visions Medical Program which I learned so much and also earned college credit towards my medical career that I am going to pursue. My best advice is to get involved in clubs, keep up your grades, keep to yourself and don't get involved in childish games, keep good attendance, and just enjoy yourself!
They do not handle conflict well. If you have a student with a disability, you have a high probability that the school system will neglect what they need to pursue a good education. Most of the staff are decent individuals, but a lot will not cater to helping students get the most of their education. The friends a student will make are actually the most positive experience you will have in the school district, but other than that, if your child is being bullied, be sure you as the parent fights it too because the school refuses to help until the parents push it enough. I would know from experience in the district and people I know still attending school here.
