Conard High School Reviews

Conard High School is the most beautiful school inside and out. From the most caring and intelligent teachers, to administration that places the students' well-being on the top of the priority list, to the most family oriented community that truly treats education as the key to success. The teachers took time to learn every single student and I can say I always felt like I was being challenged to my full ability. They believed in me before I believed in myself. Now I am a African American junior in a private college in upstate new york with a 3.5 GPA studying Political Science and Philosophy.
Review Conard High School
The school offers many extracurricular activities, which are diverse and intrigue. There are those that gives student opportunities to enhance their education, and also those that serve the purpose of entertainment and relaxation. Usually, clubs do not have any requirement for participant and welcoming everyone who is interested. But organized meeting or organization might have several requirements for members and demand students to put efforts in. But overall, every extracurricular activities in Conard bring great help to students, getting them connected and improve their academic as well as social skills.
This school tends to reward small-minded, culturally whitewashed kids. The administration and teaching/coaching staff reward bullies and "popular kids" and there is very little consequence for poor behavior, drinking, etc., because most of the offenders are also athletes. The classes are very average, and the students are very disengaged from the learning experience. The school also over-inflates its grades. The best students just tolerate their time there until they can break out and go to college.
