I went to Ballston Spa School District from 2nd grade all the way through graduation. All the praise that the school receives is well deserved. The faculty and teachers at the school do an amazing job and really do make the difference in education. If it weren’t for some of my favorite teachers who pushed me to do better who knows where I would be now. From History to Art to English to Music I have created such great memories and skills. That’s not to say however that BSCSD doesn’t have its bumps as well. No one is perfect and with that said I will say many of the experiences I had were as an upper level student and I will admit that some of the more average course load classes have some unsavory faces and classes but everyone has different opinions.
