New Rochelle High School is a great school with so many great aspects. With a huge diversity in teachers, it’s hard to not find a teacher you can’t get close to. And with so many class options from food science to their newest neurology class. Help and support in the staff is amazing with resource available to you and tutoring after hours for students who struggle, it’s great!

New Rochelle is a very diverse and fulfilling school with nearly 3,500 students. All students have access to great teachers, high level classes, and amazing athletics. New Rochelle High school does an excellent job preparing students for college. Finally, New Rochelle High School has a great community of students and teachers that all come together in tough times to come up with solutions to make the school even better!
New Rochelle High School was an interesting experience to say the least. There are many great experiences to be had, and the population is very diverse. I learned Spanish pretty quickly just by making friends, I never once sat in a Spanish class. Many AP classes are also very worthwhile and yield excellent academic results. However, there were many inconsistencies between the level of competency in teachers and staff. Some are strong, helpful teachers, others seem like they should be highschool students themselves. Furthermore, the funds are mostly looked into the Football and Cheerleading teams, meanwhile only 1/2 the toilets work and some stalls have no locks. No shade, but there is a lot of room for improvement.
