I really enjoy Minisink Valley. I will never ever forget my time there. They had amazing teachers who inspired me to learn and to be the best person I could be. I learned so much information that will help me later in life. The friendships I made from minisink are friendships that will last a life time. My only complaint is to treat all sports equally and to make sure the music programs get as much attention as the sports team. Everyone in a sport, band, chorus, or in a club are very important. I learned that everyone is their own person and they all are different and amazing in their own way. I learned to love and respect other because of Minisink. I hope to be a teacher one day because my teachers in Minisink inspired me to teach and possibly come back and teach at Minisink!

I’ve been part of Minisink for about 4 years. I came from the Bronx to Otisville in November of 2014. It was a drastic change, everything was different. Being that the school was bigger, it wasn’t as diverse as being in the city. I had to accommodate to what was now “home.” I had some amazing teachers along the way that helped me throughout my years.
I had a wonderful experience at Minisink Valley High School. I was given an excellent education and had every opportunity I had hoped for. The institution is clean and professional and extremely respectable. The staff is incredible as well!
