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.

As a former student at Scarsdale Middle School and High School, I felt very prepared in college. Many of the teachers provide a decent amount of challenging work. Starting your junior year, it is possible to test for Advanced Topic (AT) courses that are taught at the level of Advanced Placement (AP) courses. The fact that one has to take a test to be placed in a class assures that the student will succeed in every class. However, I wish it was possible to study for AP tests outside of class to help take fewer GenEds in college. Aside from academics, there are a decent number of clubs and sports to join. I played sports all throughout middle school and high school, which was the best way to make friends for me.
A highly stressful and competitive environment, but excellent schools and great preparation for college and life after.
