Ichabod Crane Senior High School Reviews

65 reviews

I can say that Ichabod crane has prepared me for the real world in many different ways. The professors spend plenty of time staying after school and even letting students come in during their lunch to help them out with extra questions or needed help. As long as you show interest there will always be room for success inside Ichabod Crane. A big complaint at Ichabod is that the Professors are very quick to write referrals or send you out of class. I would like to see is Professors to take the time to talk to students or just hear out what they're dealing with instead of just turn them out of the classroom when a cloud is in the teachers sunlight. A big negative about Ichabod Crane though is the diversity. Being the only African American student in my graduating class, I did deal with some racist situations while attending Ichabod Crane but many of the children welcomed me with open arms. - Keone A.

I attended this school district from grades k-12. I was part of the class of 2013 and I can honestly say this school shaped the person I am today. The main purpose of this school district is to ensure learning in all of its students. It prepared me for college through the many of the AP and college courses that it provided. The administration's top priority is that each and every student is treated respectfully, and works of to his or her own potential. Although it is in a rural area, it is located right in the middle of two larger cities; Albany and Hudson. Both of these places allow for many volunteer experiences and jobs in which this school district is able to set its students up with. The sports teams are very successful, and the coaches are very school-work oriented. School before sports. If you are looking for a good school to bring up your children, Ichabod Crane is the perfect school district.
There are some good teachers if you're in higher level classes, but otherwise most of them couldn't care less. The school lacks diversity and many of the students are racist. The water contained lead so there was no drinkable water for a while. There is also an officer on campus now. The school, like many others, has drug issues. Hoping to resolve the drug issues, the administration took away the ability to carry book bags. It has not helped. As for college readiness, I attended a community college for my senior year and I was not prepared for it at all. Even though I took all AP and honors classes, I was not even close to being ready for college.
