James I. O'Neill High School Reviews

86 reviews
All Categories
James I. O'Neill is a school that claims excellence, however, in my experience it does not have the excellence it claims. I moved mid year and began attending O'Neill half way through my freshman year of high school. The administration in place was not helpful and my transition was quite rough, due in part to the school. Many of the teachers are average or below that. In my experience, many teachers are not compelled to teach or help their students and do not make themselves accessible to students for help. I have had a difficult time working with teachers who just don't do a good job. I feel that I have been pushed to excel, though not due to the teachers or school but rather to my own drive and competitive NY state standards. The school owes its claims of excellence and high test scores to the hard working and driven students (many coming from West Point and military families) who attend it.

What I like about James I. O'Neill Highschool is that there is a lot of diversity and you get to communicate with many other students and meet new people. The teachers are very kind and the education is free and very good. They have many clubs, sports, and after school activities that the students can participate in. The food at James I. O'Neill is very good there are many varieties and options of food for students to eat and it does taste very good. The school is very good at involving parents in the students school and academic life. If the school sees or notices any sign of bullying they will immediately take action and stop the situation in hand. I like my highschool very much and I wouldn't trade it for any other schools.
In my four years of experience at James I. O'Neill, there were things that I admired and things that I didn't agree with. Being able to go to a school where I feel safe and ready to learn was something that was important for me. Unfortunately, the school was very small, and I would have preferred a larger class size, which is something that wide variety of good technology at my school because I believe that it was beneficial to my learning experience.
