Dryden Central School District Reviews
Dryden is a school district with nice facilities and good facility staff, but the academics fall short when it comes to actual college preparation and life readiness. Having only one career ready department, the business department, the school continuously shrinks the department and makes these resources unavailable to students who need it.
Dryden has little diversity and that is something I would like to see fixed. There are a few teachers who stand out and are excellent at their jobs. Other teachers don't seem happy or passionate about their job. The sports programs are great. Overall, it is a good school compared to surrounding districts.
As with anything, there are pros and cons, but overall my experience at Dryden Central School has been positive. The small classes lend to very close relationships where you know everyone in your graduating class. The AP and concurrent classes have helped me to enter college with many credits. I am very appreciative to have those opportunities. There does seem to be some issue though with principals and other staff leaving the Dryden school district much more frequently than other schools. I'm not sure why and have stayed away from the negative aspects, but I do hope that it settles down and some stability can be found for the future classes.
