The education I received from Potsdam High School has been very good, but the school seems to be pretty strict for a high school. Potsdam lacks diversity too. I also find myself having a difficult time applying to college because I was never taught how to do it or how long it would take to apply. There are plenty of clubs to join at Potsdam High school, no matter what you’re interested in. Overall, the education will not disappoint.
I liked the community involvement with Potsdam High School, and all of the teachers are welcoming and helpful. The environment helps you reach your full potential. I also enjoyed the sports teams and the friends I have made.
The staff is very friendly and helpful. However, the school lacks diversity and could use more clubs and advanced classes.
