Schalmont High School Reviews

50 reviews

My attendance at Schalmont High school has been at times very invigorating and , but at other times, very frustrating for a young adult going into the adult world. Everything you expect to be a good high school indeed defines Schalmont. However, various aspects create an environment that makes it difficult for students to prosper, such as the sports programs. Some of these extracurricular activities are extremely selective and have rigorous training hours in which the student's school work is not taken into account. Another complication and the most significant one seems to be the level of college information and readiness help that is not being distributed. Going into Junior and Senior year, I wished that I was more prepared and talked to about the complicated tasks I had to endure beforehand. Schalmont is a small public school that possesses acute pride, but it fails to direct students to the best path of success.

For a small public school in Upstate New York, Schalmont provides a great education and overall high school experience. However, due to its small size there are also many different opportunities not available to students that would be offered in a larger school. For example, there are only 3 AP classes offered, there is an average amount of activities/opportunities for involvement, and there is little diversity within the school.
The teachers here are amazing, too bad the students are terrible peers. Everyone is so white and there's a really big culture of xenophobia because everyone there is a carbon-copy of each other; there isn't any room for outside voices.
