Pittsford Sutherland is known for its high success level and for the high percentage of students that go on to receive a higher level of education. Furthermore, it offers a variety of elective classes and programs that allow students to explore their interests in an in depth setting with others that share the same passion as them. While this school does an excellent job of preparing its students for college, it often fails to teach them and emphasize the importance of simple things, such as empathy and the ability to recognize how fortunate they are.

A nice small nit community with teachers who are highly involved. Teachers are amazing here and are very interested in our well being. Students can feel safe and comfortable at Sutherland. There is a wide variety of electives to choose from and no one is denied the opportunity to find their path. The sports teams are decent and being on one is very fun, and teaches hard work and dedication. Students are held to high standards which makes the transition to college, and getting accepted into colleges a lot easier.
My experience with pittsford sutherland has been rocky. As a school with lots of expectations, pressure is high to get good grades, take hard classes, and be in all clubs and honor societies possible. For kids like me who have anxiety, this is not a good match. I am someone who pushed themselves academically on my own, and the stress of the school makes my will to do that low.
