Suffern Central School District Reviews

I came to district in 1973 which was the start of my 10th grade. Prior to that I had been in CT. Some of the classes here were above my level, but I enjoyed it. My son was in the Ramapo Central School District (Now Suffern District), and he excelled wonderfully. He did three sports all four year in Suffern High. Some of his teachers had been mine as well. Which I loved. I would recommend this district due to it's diversity and it's teachers.

Ramapo Central has been my home since kindergarten. Every teacher I’ve had since I was 5 has been nothing but an experience to remember as I carry on through life. Some teachers more my style than others, but each opening new doors and opportunities for me to become the best version of myself possible. With this being said, the staff in Ramapo Central, new or old, can change anyone who comes through this school district for the better.
RCSD has been my home for all my years of schooling. K-12 has been an overall good experience, but as the years have gone on it seems to be in a bit of a decline. Though overall this is probably the best school district in the rockland county area!
