Amity Regional School District No. 5 Reviews

While the academics were quite challenging and forced growth to occur, my entire high school experience is painted with a climate of overzealous stress. Oftentimes students were less so seen as individuals and more so viewed by the administration as cogs in a wheel, needing to perform with flying colors so as to adorn the school's public image. I found that students were expected to complete extremely unrealistic amounts of work, and hyper-productivity proved the moral cornerstone of the institution. While driving students to work vigorously, many suffered consequential mental health issues/ flare-ups, which the school addressed pretty poorly. Overall, I feel that Amity could do a better job revering the individual and catering to the needs/restraints/goals of the students.

I am a recent graduate of Amity Regional High School and I could not have asked for a better high school experience. I have found that Amity has prepared me in the best way possible for college (much more than my college peers coming from other high schools). Amazing teachers and administration that truly care about the students. Additionally, although Amity is not very racially diverse it is very diverse in religion. So proud to be a Spartan.
Absolutely the best high school in the area. The atmosphere on the campus can't be recreated in any other way. The teachers, staff and administration in the building walk through the doors everyday with a positive attitude, willing to whatever is necessary to see the students succeed. The students at Amity are hard working, respectful, well-rounded students. The majority of students participate in various combinations of clubs, organizations, sports teams, as well as do well in the class room. Amity Regional High School could not do a better job setting students up for success. The young adults that leave Amity go off to do bigger and better things because of the strong foundation they have set.
