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!

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.,
For the most part, the New Paltz town is very friendly and open-minded. Its reputation for being liberal remains true, and I appreciate it's uniqueness. I have encountered some judgemental professors, but other than that, my experience has been great!
