Poughkeepsie City School District Reviews
I've been a student in the Poughkeepsie city school district ever since I was in kindergarten. Overall I have nothing bad to say about the district or the administration. From my point of view the district does a great job at providing the students with wonderful opportunities to help the students in Poughkeepsie succeed. In the district it is a matter of whether the students use those opportunities to the best of their advantage or not, and there are a good handful of students in the district who do an amazing job at staying informed about all the good opportunities.
Very diverse,compassionate, and committed to the success of every student. Changes only needed are facility upgrades. More Parents supporting efforts of Teachers and Administration
For me, attending Poughkeepsie High School was very challenging. There are teachers that care about the students but they don't know how to successfully connect with them. Poughkeepsie is very aggressive, not only within peers but in the administration and staff. It doesn't feel as if they're on the same side as the students and that there causes unwanted conflicts. There are a lot of situations in which a students behavior improving but the authority there is just as negative. Instead of providing the proper mentoring, they establish repetitive punishment. Suspension, that some students do not deserve, that provides no school work on this suspended leave from school. Poughkeepsie High School graduation rate falls in the high 50's almost every year I can remember and that has to solely change on the education and educators.
