Hastings-on-Hudson Union Free School District Reviews
Moved here my junior year, now a senior. The school itself is amazing, there are so many more granted freedoms then other high schools I've been to in the past. I participated in a sport when I came in, so making friends was easy. The teachers are always available to help students understand their work. The town itself is also great, a perfect high school experience. Had a great time!
It's sad to see that the school district is on the decline. As the middle child of 3, I'm witness to the state of the schools before, during, and after my time in the district. Good teachers used to be plentiful, now they are few and far between. Naturally gifted students can flourish in this environment, but students that struggle tend to get forgotten and ignored. Tensions between administration and students is quite high. The student community has always been a bit cut throat, with students looking out for themselves and their grades instead of working collaboratively. Out of concern for their college prospects the students that can afford it (the majority can given the district is in an affluent neighborhood) just pay for tutors to make up for the fact that many of the teachers don't teach much. I'm pretty sure that this (along with major unchecked grade inflation) is the reason the school looks the way it does on paper.
I was enrolled in the Hastings-on-Hudson Union Free School District from K-12, and had an extremely positive experience in all three schools. I best remember the high school. All of my teachers were impressively knowledgeable of their subjects and dedicated to their students. The school offers a huge variety of courses and extra-curricular activities considering the small size of the school.
