Remsen Junior/Senior High School Reviews
Rating 3 out of 5 23 reviews
I like how the parents, the student body and community got so involved in sports, clubs, and other activities. I want like to see the education rate go up and having more opportunities to learn how to do with things in the way they learn best.
I love the teachers and facility. The students are very nice and it is very appreciative about other students.
Bullying is prevalent and the student rarely focus on education.
Teachers are far better than students at this school.
Our principal doesn't often get involved unless he needs to. If theres a fight either him, or the guidance counselor will break it up. Many students approach the guidance counselor with their problems or issues. He is often helpful with that.
Our school offers some pretty decent classes. This year i'm taking a math course thats called, Elementary Statistics. It's a college course so that I can earn college credits early. We also offer Physics, Psychology, Pre Calculous, and regular Calculous.
The sports programs at Remsen High School are very good. They provide the essentials that we need to succeed and beyond. Our varsity soccer field is located in the middle of our track. We don't have try outs at our school, our class sizes only consist of 20 to 30 kids max. So who ever goes out for the team, plays. Were not exactly the best, but we try our best and put fourth full effort. We also have a lot of school spirt. So many people paint their faces our school colors (orange and black) during basketball games and soccer games.
The teachers in Remsen are pretty good. They all have a different style of teaching. They are all knowledgable in the subjects that they teach.
Our school building is okay. There is this one spot in the band room where the roof leaks pretty decent every time it rains, and the janitors hallway is pretty banged up. Theres holes in the walls and the tile floor is pretty torn up, but during the day students are not allowed down there because of the condition. But in general, its a pretty decent school. The main halls and classrooms are always very clean, and everything is organized. There is a media center with 25 desktop computers, and a computer lab above that with 40 desktop computers. All are equip with Microsoft Word, Powerpoint, and Microsoft Excel. Also there is one Guidance Counselor and his secretary.
The enforcement of rules and policies is horrible, the principal will see an athlete student with a cell phone out and say nothing to them, but if a non-athlete student has a cell phone out, then he will take the cell phone immediately and typically assign detention to that non-athlete student.
The last 5-6 years the sports funding has been cut down, and the equipment is not up-to-date.
The last five years, sports have been losing funding really badly, the equipment is not as up-to-date as it should be.
The entire curriculum is based on what is being taught in other area schools.
The computers provided for student use more often than not are infected with viruses and do not work, the buses used for transporting students are more likely to have issues than those at surrounding schools.
We don't have a diverse school it all. Everyone was born and raised in America.
We have lots of school cuts and not a good budget. We don't get a lot offered to us because the money we can spend and this is a big down fall.
The guidance counselor is known not to send in student i information to the collegs they are interested in. The athletic director is very organized and knows what he's doing.
