Horace Greeley is an amazing school in theory. I mean, my parents and I moved to Chappaqua SO I could attend. The things we learn are top notch, the technology available at our fingertips is state-of-the-art, and the teachers are phenomenal. But, the social norms here are atrocious. The habits the students practice academically is extremely unhealthy. Students brag about pulling all-nighters and taking as many AP classes as possible. This school, is basically just a machine for getting into good colleges. I remember my SECOND WEEK of freshman year people asking me what colleges I was looking at.

Horace Greeley is a great school, though it can be a bit tough to fit in as people can be somewhat cliquey. The academics are wonderful and teachers seem passionate and excited about what they’re learning. The school is quite competitive when it comes to academics which can be both a pro and a con depending on how you look at things. Greeley is well known by the top colleges and does a good job at guiding you through the application process and preparing you for the college experience. It also has lots of funding which makes for good facilities and leaves no departments lacking. Overall a great place to send your son or daughter.
Greeley is a top-notch NY public high school: the student body is incredibly smart and academically-driven, the teaching is phenomenal, and the variety of classes to take in all fields is almost overwhelming. However, because the entire student body is so focused on achieving the highest grades possible in the highest-level, most advanced courses available, the competition at Greeley between all students can certainly be felt.
