Review Nyack Senior High School
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.
Nyack High School has provided me with a wonderful education and has undoubtedly improved em as a person. Many of the teachers genuinely care about providing students with a wholesome education and make class both informative and enjoyable. A wide variety of courses are available, and almost any type of student would be able to meet their intellectual desires here. Nyack also has a strong sense of school community and I have made many close friends in my four years here.
