Waterford Halfmoon schools may not be the biggest school that offers the same variety of courses as other schools, but the experience of attending school in a small town with a great community with teachers that genuinely care is amazing. My teachers are invested in my success and I have enjoyed my educational experience at Waterford Halfmoon schools.

I’ve been to three high schools. Out of all of them this high school was the one that felt more like elementary school to me. I feel as if the kids are to babied and unprepared for the world. Having more freedom and responsibilities at the other high schools made me grow up more and realize what the real world is like. I like the class sizes but the way its run isn’t very world preparing.
Waterford-Halfmoon is your typical small public high school. Located about twenty minutes from Albany, it is in a suburban community. Though not very diverse, racially or economically, the quality of what is offered there is above average.
