Pelham Union Free School District Reviews

2 reviews
I have been enrolled in the Pelham Union Free School System since kindergarten. From elementary school to high school, class sizes have never exceeded 25. In fact, my high school's graduating class size is around 200 students each year. Thus, teachers are able to give individualized attention to their students without worrying about completing the curriculum in time. Further, open enrollment at Pelham gives students the opportunity to choose their own schedules, without needing a recommendation from their teachers. This is very nice considering students have autonomy over their own transcripts. With regard to extracurricular activities and sports, the administration is very passionate about student involvement, and much of the student body shares a common interest in the Pelham varsity hockey games.

Most teachers are amazing and supportive however some just don’t connect to students, need re-evaluation. The food is not good.
