Horseheads Central School District Reviews

My overall experience with Horseheads High School was a mix of poor and some positive experiences. Some teachers are very helpful and do all that they can to make you feel like your success actually matters whereas others neglect those who struggle to receive the proper education they deserve for college readiness. The funding towards the school is inefficient as well. With the amount of school taxes paid, one would think that basic needs like having an adequate supply of hand soap and toilet paper would be met but that is clearly not the case for this high school. The most negative aspect of this school is its inflexible scheduling system. HHDS utilizes a block schedule system that prevents high-achieving students to take a multitude of upper classes in the same semester. This conflict and limitations make it quite difficult to be a competitive application among those who attend schools offering IB, Honors, and a wide range of AP classes that are not limited to just social studies.

i will miss the Horseheads High School when I go off to college. The teachers were so enthusiastic about their work and were always searching for new ways to help the students, including myself, learn and understand the material better. The students always came first. There was a passion for teaching which made students enjoy classes in various areas that they never thought they would. Everyone is also very involved with school functions and groups and it brings people from all backgrounds and experiences together. The facilities were always kept clean and the teachers and administrators made it a priority that students are aware of what to do in several dangerous situations.
As a senior who attended Horseheads Schools beginning with Middle School, I cannot emphasize how much the district has worked on improving its academic performance levels, facility maintenance, extracurricular activity engagements, and any other aspect of the district that would benefit the students as well as the community. The new superintendent has taken on the challenge of producing a plan to further expand what our district has to offer to current, as well as prospective students, and everything that he has come up with has wowed everyone. I would definitely look forward to coming back to visit this district and see what changes have been produced in order to improve the well-being and education received by all students.
