Schenectady City School District Reviews

I love how diverse this school district is especially comparing it to a nearby one where there is little to no diversity. I would change how some teachers approach teaching students who are less motivated (because of personal reasons) because there have been complaints from some students that there is a lot of favoritism. On the other hand, I do believe that the administrators mean well and that there are resources to be taken advantage of.

From Kindergarten up to 12th grade, I was in the Schenectady City School District. I believe that this is a district that is always up to change. At my time at Schenectady High School I saw staff that were willing to support and help students at every step of the way. One of the most impressive moments being the Schenectady High School walk out in the year of 2018.
Growing up in a household where the adults were dissatisfied with the neighborhood and the expiranece of family members at Schenectady high school, I expected nothong short of hell once there. Surprisingly I was meet woth an expirenace that I had not been prepared for. Rather than a low education, this school offers IB one of the most rigorous and rising prgrams that give you a taste of the world ourside thw US. With the amount of programs available and the emphasise placed on being a well rounded student by the insturctors and other faculty, you cant help but be helping to open a show while having over 4 things due by the end of the week--- the results? A very prepares college student who has learnt the misy important skill...time management.
