Excellent school district!!! For upstate New York, it is incredible the education this district offers at half the cost of a district downstate. Teachers are outstanding and go above and beyond for students. Excellent music dept, language dept, sports (boys swim team was #1 in state 2019)
Kids graduate extremely prepared for college and alternate career paths.

I have been going to Niskayuna Schools for about ten years. The overall environment is great, there are multiple opportunities to improve your skills in different areas. At the High School there are over 100 clubs to be apart of, our sport teams are decent and the faculty is friendly and helpful in motivating you to continue striving. The education level here is pretty high and teachers are great in helping you to do your best. While I have been here bullying was not a big issue here because most people get along. The only downside might be diversity here, while there are different cultural clubs and students with different backgrounds it sometimes feels one sided in certain situations. Every school has it's ups and downs, but compared to my past schools I have been to Niskayuna was the best and the most fun.
The academics here are great. Lots of AP's and honors as academic options for all interests. Great music and art programs. The faculty is mostly great. Some bad experiences with teachers, but nothing extreme. Not much diversity. Niskayuna is a bubble consisting mostly of white and Asian middle class people. Barely any Hispanics or African Americans.
