Minisink Valley High School properly prepares students with the necessary hands-on experience and the guidance and support to be able to discover their academic interests and desires in their post-high school careers. The teachers and staff are always putting their students first in all of their efforts, and they go above and beyond in the line of duty to offer outside help to aid those students who might be struggling in the classroom and who might need that extra time to fine-tune their intellectual skills. I have yet to meet a teacher or staff member that does not genuinely care about the success and progression of their students, and especially during this year (with the current extenuating circumstances), the teachers have truly stepped up in making themselves available to be the best resource possible for the student body. They are the driving force behind the academic growth of the Minisink community and have demonstrated incredible strength and character in everything they do.
Minisink Valley is definitely one of the best schools in the Hudson Valley. They have a ton of resources for studying, such as the extensive library subscribed to top notch online databases and it’s productive atmosphere. Counselors are fairly accessible and work for you if students are persistent. The office needs work though. The majority of the office staff are ill mannered and oftentimes doesn’t make students feel good about asking for help. Minisink’s diversity is getting better, but it should push for minorities to enter honors or AP classes because the majority of students enrolled in those classes are white. Overall, well-equipped school, with its only flaw being that it’s not a good socially diverse atmosphere.
Minisink may look small, but it has a whole lot to offer. Our sports department is the most funded activity. We have a variety of sports - from football to swimming. Each of the clubs has the proper equipment and staff to coach. However, don't let this deter you from our art and music programs. On the smaller side, but music&arts directors make it enjoyable. We have a marching band with proper uniforms and four different musical levels of bands and choruses. We have different art programs that intertwine with clubs. If you're not an academic learner, Minisink is linked with BOCES. A program that links students to specific majors like culinary, engineering, cosmetics, etc. It fills have your schedule, and you would only take non-honors classes. It's great for hands on experience, and a lot of students get real-world jobs - skipping the college process. My school offers a lot of college credits and honor classes as well. I believe there are things for everyone at Minisink.
