Yonkers City School District Reviews
My overall experience so far in the Yonkers school district has been fairly good. The teachers have been good and the learning experience has been good too! The diversity in the schools are good, you see kids from various part of the world. The part of the school districts that I would change would be the sports facilities and the amount of money distributed to varsity sports. As a current athlete, I see all these districts with better facilities for there kids. There is a lot of talent in yonkers and with better facilities and better players there is more money for college athletic scholarships
Unfortunately, the Yonkers' Board of Education has repeatedly shown over the years the lack of commitment to there students. They have repeatedly give false and delusional graduation rates. They proudly claim that their graduation rates are on the rise, but if one was to test the students in subjects such as math, science and English, there scores will show otherwise.
Like most schools, it all really depends on the teachers you get. Some teachers are horrible at teaching and are more capable of attitude than educating. Though, I have many awesome teachers as well, that can be very informative and helpful. My school is very heavy in school regulations, constant detentions for many things, and it can feel like a lockdown in lunch, making it awful.
