Scarsdale Union Free School District Reviews

I'm a rising senior and my experience in SHS was mediocre. The resources students are provided with-- from a huge library with helpful librarians, to access to dozens of databases, students have the potential to explore topics and develop a passion for learning. A lot of teachers in Scarsdale are engaging and qualified, but some take advantage of their tenure and leave their students to fend for themselves. I understand that this occurs in every school, but with the crazy high taxes that residents are paying, this shouldn't have to be the case. I am disappointed with the social climate these often over-privileged students create and the lack of diversity. Students are very competitive and conversations often consist of asking each other what grade they got on tests. An overwhelming majority of the student population is caucasian--and I have been a victim of their microagressions against my culture. I can't eat my lunch without someone commenting on its stench.

Quite simply the Scarsdale Schools have been among the very best for decades. Scarsdale High has had the highest levels of academic achievement in the country. Having worked for three of the top private research universities in the U.S. If a family has high expectations and is ready to be supportive of the schools as well as their students, I can't think of a better school system in America. Your students will do well!
I attended Scarsdale Schools k-12. The teachers were dedicated, kind, and effective. I was highly prepared for college. School culture is very classist and many students are demanding as they come from wealthy families.
