East Greenbush Central School District Reviews
Rating 4.38 out of 5 29 reviews
East Greenbush was a great school district. It provided me with a lot of opportunities and allowed me to push my self with many different classes to choose from. The schools are great with great teachers.
I had a positive experience in EGCSD. I wish at the high school level, that there were 9 periods instead of 8 so you could take more electives. I only had a lunch period my senior year. It was also a bummer that you basically have choose between playing an instrument or singing in chorus when you used to be able to do both. For the most part, the teachers are great.
Columbia High School and the East Greenbush Central School District is a very close and comforting community. The teachers and staff care about their students and giving them the best education. The district cares about all the students very equally and always makes sure every student is learning to the best of their abilities.
I am a senior at Columbia and my overall experience at Columbia is pretty good. The parent involvement is great and the teachers for the majority really care about the students. The safety is taken very seriously and the food is ok. There is a lot of diversity and there are many clubs, activities, and resources as well as the arts and music is very good.
East Greenbush Central School District is an amazing district! I am a student there and it's pretty great.
This school is only one of the best. I have grown so much, made amazing bonds with all my teachers, and had opportunities I wouldn't have imagined if I attended any other school. From the Administration to the Bus Drivers this is such a wonderful environment to be surrounded by and I would not trade it for anything else.
teachers were very sincere, great care and resources available for students to help their academics.
Large but very close knit school district. I only attended the highschool but enjoyed the experience very much. I have made some great friends and some very encouraging, supportive teachers.
I liked that everyone has the opportunity to take classes at the level they choose, whether that be all regents level, all AP/Honors or a mix of both.
The teachers are all very nice and want to help all the time if a student needs it. They are all very caring and hard-working
East Greenbush has excellent teachers, acitvities/clubs, an amazing selection of electives, and a welcoming school enviorment. The only slight problem was the start time of the high school. It was far too early to start a school day for harsworking, busy student athletes, like myself, who tend to stay up late finishing schoolwork after practice.
Focus more on helping kids understand finances of college. No one from my high school really had any clue how to handle that until after we were in debt.
I really have no complaints when it comes to my schooling. I have attended East Greenbush Schools all the way from kindergarten through my Senior year of High school. I spent time at Genet Elementary, Howard L. Goff Middle School, and finally Columbia High School. I was involved in sports for most of my years including Football, Lacrosse, and our Section Champion Wrestling team. I have spent time in clubs such as the NYS Mentoring Program and the school paper as well as being a member of the East Greenbush branch of the National Honors Society. I have nothing negative to say about my time there and can never remember not wanting to go to school. I was always excited to be going another week, and I'm sad that my time is coming to a close. I would tell any families looking to enroll in the best of the best to come to East Greenbush and truly experience the best education there is to offer.
I wouldn’t be where I am today with out the amazing teachers and friends I’ve had over the 13 years I’ve been in the district. The town and school will always be home and used for guidance and reassurance as I go on to college. Our school has helped me win awards and be my best self and I’m eternally greatful to live in such a great town and to have gone to have gone to schools like these.
I like the atmosphere. This is a very good learning environment for students. They prepare us well for college too. I loved my four years here.
Most of the teachers are absolutely amazing, and they are always making the students think and expand their minds. EGCSD is recognized as one of the top schools in the area, with some of the best test scores in the nation.
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.
