Most of the teachers are good at their jobs, although some aren’t. They offer many AP courses for students interested and they have a large selection of electives to choose from.

It's a fantastic school! The school has many opportunities for students to excel. It is well rounded in academics, music/theatre, and sports! The teachers are great and always there to help with student needs!
Nyack High School is a great place for free expression and individuality but some departments staff could use some upgrading. Teachers gossip like a fellow classmate would providing for a immature and non-professional environment. Although the staff isn't necessarily the most mature, there are a few stellar teachers among the bunch such as Mrs. Kleinman, Mr. Allen, and Mrs. Derrick.
