Scarsdale High School is the perfect environment for a high achieving and highly motivated student. This school's could be much better and the school culture/spirit is lacking for the most part. However, Scarsdale High School still has many redeeming qualities. It is garunteed that if you graduate from this school you will be receiving one of the best high school educations available. There are enough students in this school for it to be possible for each student to find their crowd, even if they are not the steotypical Scarsdale student. There are many students who end up loving their SHS experience while others struggle to get through their four years, proving that this school is absolutely perfect for a specific kind of student. Oveall, a great school for college prep, and academic achievement.

Scarsdale High School is home to a very competitive student body. Unfortunately, the competition is framed in a way that isolates those who are on the regular or in-advanced tract and causes those students to be looked upon differently. The students are friendly and welcoming for the most part, but it is clear that there are some groups and cliques that have been formed from very early childhood. This can make it especially hard for a new incoming student to make friends and feel comfortable. All in all, it is a great school if you want your child to get a good education and have a chance at getting into a top school. My one advisory would be not to be surprised if he/she gets stressed out or overwhelmed at times.
The school environment is a very proficient place to study and work towards your dreams. The classes are comprehensive and the teachers are very intelligent and are very supportive. Class sizes are generally 20-25 people, and students are encouraged to seek extra help from their teachers or just to get to know them. However the amount of stress that students experience here are almost suffocating. The aura of competition for college and grades is quite overwhelming, and the workload that students receive continue for hours and hours. But other than that, there is a tight community that binds the school and the town together.
