Spackenkill has provided me with a comfortable and engaging learning environment throughout all my years of schooling. The teachers and staff are always helpful and make the interests and needs of their students their top priority. In addition to strong academics, Spackenkill provides students with many extra-curricular opportunities and valuable resources for allowing students to put their best foot forward. I could not has asked for a better education than I received in Spackenkill and would highly recommend it.

I love being at Spackenkill. I love all of the teachers, they are always supportive and push students to work hard. There are tons of extracurricular opportunities for students from school sports to the math team. The school is relatively small, which gives it an almost 'private' school feel. The only issue with the school being small is the lack of flexibility in high school scheduling. I have run into situations where I wasn't able to take a certain class because it was only offered one period, while many of the larger schools nearby can offer it all the time. That's the only issue I have with the school, otherwise, I love it!
Great district in a great area! Spackenkill teachers and administrators have especially demonstrated their determination as educators during this COVID-19 pandemic.
