Solvay Union Free School District Reviews

I attended Solvay schools from kindergarten all the way up until high school graduation. Solvay was a great experience where I made lasting friendships with both my peers and my teachers. My education at Solvay Highschool provided me with so many college credits, I was able to skip a year when I got to unversity. Saving money from 1 less year of college will have a huge impact on my finanical future. I am so grateful for the years I got to spend in Solvay and will never forget what a truly amazing school district it was.

I think this school district is highly underrated. The teachers are phenomenal and are willing to work with everyone. Also the school is super diverse therefore, it gives many children opportunities to learn and grow with the assistance of ESL teachers.
Solvay High School was a great experience. I met lifelong friends here and was happy with how the students treated each other. Some classes were challenging but the teachers were more than ready to help any student in need. It was fun going to sports events even though they have one of the worst football teams in NY. I always felt safe as there are officers on the school site.
