New Paltz Central School District Reviews
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!
I've lived in New Paltz since first grade, and my experience here has been overall wonderful. Although the demographic ratio in the school district is highly skewed and is dominated by the white American population, being a minority has so far not been an issue when attending school at New Paltz. The faculty here are very wonderful people and I've enjoyed interacting with them both inside and outside of a classroom setting, mostly through after school clubs.
Many former New York City as well as Long Islanders make the migration to New Paltz for many reasons; The top reason is the district's uncanny academic reputation. The reason people do this is because the New Paltz Central School District boasts about their school ranking in an academic scale. The rank does not necessarily reflect the student GPAs, it reflects the extent to which the district pushes students to load their schedules with Advanced Placement courses. Subsequently, many students feel an unhealthy pressure from the school guidance to go overboard with the hard classes. For some people, this however helps some people to succeed.,
