East Greenbush Central School District Reviews

The East Greenbush school district may place too much of the budget on sports teams that do poorly, have the earliest start time in the area, and rather terrible cafeteria food, but it is still an arguably fantastic high school. Columbia High School may have its faults but it also has its Highlights . The teachers available to the students generally care about their job and doing it right so that students are truly pushed to success in the future. They inspire a desire to put in the effort to do well and succeed. Many support students outside the classroom in our many clubs and activities ranging from our nationally ranked Science Olympiad team to the frisbee club, to our various community service organizations, and every thing in between. Both academic and recreational support are everywhere you look there is always a place you will be welcomed no matter who you are.

I was part of the EGCSD from kindergarten at Genet to graduation from Columbia. In terms of quality of education, I would say it's on par with most other schools around the country. However, Columbia's administration wasn't great- racial profiling was fairly blatant and not rare. I hope it didn't affect those particular students too much in the long run. Security is so uptight that it felt nearly impossible to do anything- you weren't even allowed in the library without a pass from a teacher. I'd like to see more fair treatment of students from every and all backgrounds, and a greater variety of extracurricular activities. Anything else that could be said should be said of the entire nation's education system, not specifically this district.
Columbia High School is a place of many people, attitudes, and personalities. Here, through sports I earned the NYS Scholar Athlete Award. I have a very different personality, one that is open about everything, which has put me into some good and tricky situations in Columbia High. I am a senior, I’m in National Honor Society, I have played three sports in high school, and I’ve had a job since the beginning of junior year. I have been a member of the Drama department and Chorus since 9th grade. Columbia has taught me that some people are mean and deceitful, but if you carry yourself the correct way, you can conquer anything.
