Rye Neck Senior High School Reviews

Over all this a really good school. The teachers really try hard to help students understand the curriculum and sometimes over study us so state exams do not seem as difficult. There are several ways to get involved as a student like joining clubs and doing sports. There are also multiple electives to choose from in all the STEAM fields. Even though this school isn’t big, students are capable of bonding together in ways bigger schools wouldn’t be able to do. Overall this is a great place to attend :).

I graduated from Rye Neck High School and Middle School many moons ago. In retrospect Rye Neck was the foundation that helped me succeed in life. The teachers in high school were far better, far more caring, and just more likable than most college professors while getting paid far less and dealing with much more difficult students. Rye Neck is a really small school, and at the end of the day, this ended up being a good thing. In high school we all got along and we all had fun together. This was before facebook, smart phones, or any of the electronics and on-demand internet that is frankly, destroying all of us.

Were there problems...of course. Far too many marijuana users, far too many students without a purpose in life; but that's the case in most places. If you put in the effort, Rye Neck's teachers will put in the effort for you.

My review has to be less than 1000 characters...great.
RNHS is a small school in which many can get a well-rounded education. Within the district, everyone knows one another and news travel fast. The school provides a diverse range of courses that help students get experience and learn about themselves during their high school years.
