Horace Greeley High School Reviews
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.
Horace Greeley was a toxic and hostile environment. Academics were always cut-throat and incredibly competitive, where students were motivated to do better than everyone else for pride and satisfaction, NOT because of altruistic intelligence or desire to learn.
