Cliffside Park High School Reviews
My experience in Cliffside Park High School has been very decent with great memories, whilst having terrible moments also. What I liked about the school is that the faculty can easily be very helpful into teaching students subjects they don't understand. In fact, the school has fantastic sport teams that will help represent the school well. If there needs to be any changes made within the school, it would be pleasurable for the faculty to pay more attention to the student's needs. In addition, having more healthy options for healthy meals rather than fast food would also help as well. Overall, my high school experience was average at best.
In my experience of attending Cliffside Park High School for three years, I believe that it is an extremely diverse school and should be commended for all of the extracurricular activities that it has to offer. Also, most of the teachers are extremely educational and take the extra mile in order to provide the best education possible. Although, while most teachers are very passionate about there job, there are teachers that choose to not educate their students to their full potential. Overall, I would rate Cliffside park High School as "very good" due to the sports, extracurricular activities, and their extremely diverse population.
It isn't as bad as people make it out to be, but if you don't want your experience here to be bad, you kind of have to go out of your way to make it good rather than just trudge through it and expect everything else to change for you. For me it was a solid time mostly because of the peers I surrounded myself with, the classes I took (and forced myself into/OUT of) and the clubs I joined (and what I did, being a part of them). Things could be better, but I won't blame the administration for it. (Completely, anyway.)
