I went to North Rockland High School and I wish I could relive those 4 years over and over again. The amount of support the North Rockland community has for one another is incomparable. There are so many different ethnicities and cultures, but it's as if we are all a family. We fundraise for families/people in need like it's a second nature and our after school activities are endless. There is something for everyone!

Throughout the 4 Years in High school, I met 1 teacher that changes my life forever, a class that talks about school safety and really bring 3 school board members to our classroom and talk about school shooting and how we should prevent it, have a plan and backup plan and to prepare ourselves for that certain situation. The school is really great but, the only downfall here is the food. The food needs to be changed and upgraded as it doesn’t look nutritious or healthy (with the exception of the salads which massively improved).
Other then that I give this a 4.5/5 stars, just improve on the food and it would have been a 5/5.
I liked how many classes were available with AP and college credit. I went into college with 48 credits and since it was a SUNY, all of them were accepted. I really loved the teachers who wouldn't quit when it came to struggling students. They always wanted people to learn and I became close with many of the teachers due to how inspirational they were and how determined they were to change the lives of their students. I loved that school and I have so many wonderful memories there. The classes and the teachers made it an exceptional high school to be at.
