Onteora High School Reviews

99 reviews
All Categories
Even though Onteora is a small rural school in upstate New York,--its graduating class has less than one hundred students--the staff and administration provide an great work environment for all students. Onteora High School has a multitude of Advanced Placement courses with dedicated teachers that make time outside of the classroom for extra help. The students, however varied they may be, are all respectful of one another and offer a safe community for all clubs such as the LGBTQ+ club and the Human Rights club. Onteora students are lucky to have the variety of sports each season that all students may participate in. Onteora, due to its location, does not have much ethnic diversity in the student body; political diversity, however, is seen throughout the school and left wing versus right wing student discussions and debates in classes are always interesting. I am grateful I went to Onteora for my high school career and it has prepared me well for many years to come.

Everyone is nice, some staff have old-school views but everyone is very accepting and positive. When some student's are being bullied they are quick to act, but too blunt in their actions. Teachers are fun to be around and are willing and able to help.
Onteora is a nice school. There's only a few things that I could think to change. The food isn't bad (there's a salad bar!), the water's good, and if you like sports you'll absolutely love it here. Our music program is also really good, but I may be biased.
