James I. O'Neill High School Reviews

96 reviews
All Categories
O'Neill is ranked very highly both locally and nationally for a reason. The graduation rate, SAT and ACT scores are all significantly above the national average. O'Neill is a very small school, so most people know each other. It's easy to make friends, and bullying is not prevalent at all.

O'Neill is like any high school as far as the atmosphere is concerned; there are some cliques, there are geeks and jocks, there are "mathletes", and the academic workload is fairly lenient. As cliche as it is, you get out what you put in. Nothing can fully prepare anyone for college, but O'Neill has a vast array of AP and SUPA classes for students to take in order to get a feel for college classes.

Ultimately, I had a good experience at O'Neill. I did well academically, forged good friendships, got into the college I wanted, am gainfully employed, and am happy with my post-high school life.

There are many opportunities for extracurriculars and clubs. A very high percentage of students will go on to a four-year college; the United States Military Academy at West Point is the most popular followed by NYU, Fordham, Pace, Penn State, Cornell, Columbia, and Georgetown.
One of the most unique high school experiences in the country. Proximity to West Point allows usage of the facilities at a world renowned institution. Diversity of experiences and opinions by parents/student should/teachers, with helpful guidance department team for each grade of students.
