I am currently a senior attending Plattsburgh Senior High School. Through out my high school career, I have felt the education at this school is very thorough and a step in the direction for college readiness. The teachers are very suite for there jobs and care about there students and want them to succeed. I’ve enjoyed the classes they offered such as graphic design as a computer class. AP and CAP courses are offered for different subjects allowing students who would like to have a step up on preparing for college a chance to do so. I think if there should be change, it should revolve around activities and making budget increases for necessary classes.

This school is okay I guess. They offer many advanced classes including honors, AP, and CAP courses. The teaching staff is great!
Overall I had a pretty good experience, however there are a few things that could be fixed around the building and there are teachers that can be rude and condescending(very few) but besides that it's pretty decent and considered the best in this area.
