Horseheads Central School District Reviews

I have attended Horseheads School District since 5th grade. I have thoroughly enjoyed my school experiences. They offer a wide variety of extra-curricular activities as well as unending academic opportunities. I am a high achieving student who likes a challenge and Horseheads offers that. I have had to work hard because they maintain high standards for all students. I have been involved in the Jr High, JV and Varsity basketball programs, the modified and JV baseball programs, Varsity tennis and Varsity track as well as the National Honor Society. As the curriculum became more intense, teachers are always willing to go the extra mile and work with you before school, during study periods and after school to make sure you understand the content. The staff and administration have always put students first. I am proud to call myself a Blue Raider!

Horseheads has great access to teachers. The guidance counselors are the BEST! There are other districts in the area whose guidance counselors are just going thru the motions and offer little to no help to their students. I can text my guidance counselor at night or on the weekend when I'm working on my college applications with questions or for help. My mom and my counselor also text frequently to stay updated on my progress towards graduation and within my individual classes.
Certain teachers are definitely the basic teachers you see all around. Not to mention it's my senior year and we are eating lunch in the south gym due to construction, when we literally had 6 months of school off. Other than that it is enjoyable. I wish there was more excitement at times, like just more fun events to do. Most of the teachers are very nice and good at being there for you, on the other hand, I feel as though some couldn't really care less, but that's only a small handful. I personally found the teachers I got along best with and enjoyed being around. Good district overall, very good experience!!
