Spackenkill Union Free School District Reviews
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!
Good choice of courses. Small class sizes. Well prepared for college. Guidance counselors did a nice job of college readiness. Food was good, with choices built in and pizza from local vendors. Small school though and could be "cliques" at times.
Despite Spackenkill's small size, it has a large personality, which many different clubs, activities, and people fillings its halls. Many of the teachers will take time out of their schedule to help students, and there are many other opportunities for help as well. However, students bullying is not handled in a proper way, making it easy to bully someone and get away with it. Also, the school lunches are unhealthy and not appetizing.
