Peekskill City School District Reviews

The Peekskill School District has served me well. I started off in Kindergarten in a Dual Language program. I had a Spanish and English Teach from K - 5th Grade. From 6th grade to my current 12th grade, I have been taking Spanish and I am now officially, bi-lingual.

The Teachers and Administrators go above and beyond the duty for us. I must admit, I did not always appreciate it, because I did not always want to work as hard, especially in my Freshmen year. The times have changed and I see the importance of my education, thanks to my parents and to my "village" in the Peekskill School District. From academics, to sports to our extra-curricular activities, I could not ask for a better district. Thanks to the Peekskill City School District, I am on my way!

My experience at Peekskill High school has been a ride with ups and downs. I have learned an amplitude of things from this school. Thanks to Peekskill High School and my principle I have learned that there are no excuses when it comes to doing what you have to do. My school isn't like other schools that have a paramount of resources and large funding. Though, that hasn't held me back because I have used to a full extent the resources they do have. For the future, I hope that school offers more advanced classes in math and science.
The Peekskill City School District for me have done a good job of helping students in Peekskill peruse their education and aim for what is best. The district is also doing its best to provide different types of school programs that students in the future can enjoy like the robotics class that has been in the high school and the Peekskill Science Research program. The district and the town itself has been changing for the better in the past 17 years. The people are very friendly, there are many places to socialize with friends, quiet neighborhoods, and a positive vibe that is rarely seen today.
