New Paltz central schools were a great place to get an education. We had many amazing teachers who would go out of their way to make sure we learned and were prepared for state tests. The community of peers was probably the best part about growing up in New Paltz. From a young age we had diversity training and anti-bullying campaigns that really brought everyone together. To this day you can see anyone you went to school with, even if you were not close in school, and stop and smile and have a friendly conversation. One thing I really appreciated was how prepared I was for college. I remember being ahead of other kids in my classes as far as writing and math, which really helped me stand out and get better marks. It also helped with my confidence in finishing my degree. I feel grateful that I was given the opportunity to go to such a wonderful school.
Very good in all aspects of the district. The teachers are very helpful and care about each and every student. They try their best to make each student have the ability and resources to be as successful as they possibly can be. The sports programs are also good, and the coaches really take time as well to care for their players. The AP courses are plentiful and there are so many to choose from . They help students for their college readiness and prepare them very well for what is to come in the college life. The school is diverse and the academics are rigorous. The clubs and activities are enough for each type of student and there is literally something for everyone. They love them and want to be a part of everything!
