Rye City School District Reviews

The Rye City School District has an excellent academic program and amazing staff. The teachers are incredibly well educated and dedicate so much for their students. Many students are hard working and are very serious in terms of academics. The competitive environment allows students to focus more on school work and study hard and compete against one another. The district also puts in great effort into sports each year. Although the dedication for sports is incredible, there is not enough dedication towards the music department and I believe that is something the district could put more work into.

My experience at Rye City School District has been pretty good. The teachers are really motivated and hardworking and so are the students. Rye High School is pretty big into sports, especially football. They also have good art and music programs. The High School also prepares you well for the college process through a class called Managing Your Future. The students at Rye High School are definitely overachievers and will try their hardest to be the best, creating a lot of unspoken competition, which can be a good and bad thing. Overall, I have had a good experience at the Rye City School District.
I feel very lucky and appreciative to have been able to grow up in Rye. Attending the Rye City Schools is an amazing journey. All the faculty want only the best for their students and are always willing to provide extra support and help to any student that needs it. I have created strong friendships with a few of my teachers and definitely see myself keeping in contact with them beyond my years attending Rye High School. The student body also adds to the warm and welcoming social atmosphere of Rye schools. Most kids are very friendly and approachable people. I have never once felt unsafe or uncomfortable while on Rye City School District property and I thank the great guidance provided to the students on how to properly behave for that.
