My time at Saugerties High School was decent. It was full of your average groups such as the jocks or the nerdy people. Plus, an athletic director that only cares for sports such as football, wrestling, and baseball. Being an athlete of none of those sports, I know. However, majority of the teachers there care about helping the students. One thing to be aware of is that there is only one of the four guidance counselors that actually care. On a plus side, the band, art, technology, and business departments are great!

The variety and availability of Advanced Placement classes is excellent because I felt enrolling in these does help students prepare for college, especially if those classes are related to your intended major. I would like to see changes in the expression of diversity. Also, more dual credit classes for those who are seniors. Those classes really help us not only to know what to expect in college, but give us a leg up in terms of credits we are bringing in as freshmen.
At SHS, I'd say my experience was decent. There were times where teachers would get involved in students' drama, escalating the issue. Secondly, honors students have witnessed teachers discouraging kids with potential to work harder in class, and instead advise them to drop out. But there have been other teachers that have always supported their students, so associating them with those instances wouldn't be fair. Also, the student body is your everyday HS cliques somewhat. The athletes are the only people (gym) coaches really pay any mind to, coming from an athlete. Bullying is an issue that isn't focused on enough. Depending on who you go to, the authority figure might do something about it. Going to any teacher or staff should be a dependable source of seeking help, in my opinion. So, the school needs to lower their tolerance of bullying to none, and inform teachers of appropriate roles they should hold in students' lives for a start to a better school community.
