Saranac High School Reviews

I have had a successful high school career here. The teachers at Saranac High School are exceptional. They dedicate extra time and effort to ensuring that their students understand the material taught in the classroom. In addition, they care about the well-being of the student. They give guidance and reassurance. Also, Saranac High School offers several opportunities. I have participated in three sports throughout high school, National Honor Society, Key Club, College for Every Student, and I am a class officer. There is also a drama club, outdoors club, art club, multicultural club, and so much more. The one thing that I would like to see improve in this school is the sense of community. Although the faculty and staff attempts to reinforce this idea, it goes unnoticed.

I like how caring most of the teachers are, but some are not understanding of students who need extra assistance or have extenuating circumstances or have moved from another state. I had issues with the administration following my 504 and with catching up on Regents from years that I was out-of-state because I transferred. However, some teachers are the best of my life and put their all in.
The high school was a very friendly and homelike environment. Some of the best people in the world worked at the school. No matter how who you were or how you acted everyone got a long very well. The teachers were so dedicated to their work and helping students achieve their goals. While the school isn't very diverse with the programs available to us (especially AP classes) the ones that were conducted at our school were very good and they helped us a lot within the year for our exams.
