Shenendehowa High School
#2 Best High Schools for STEM in Saratoga County
- Shenendehowa Central School District, NY
- Rating 3.6 out of 5 269 reviews
Senior: Shenendehowa High School has a great school environment! Faculty is generally good and extremely helpful. Teachers at Shenendehowa are always looking for ways to help students learn and succeed individually. That means extra help hours, personalized lessons or offering tutoring. I love the school spirit everyone shares at Shen. Students and staff always sport their merchandise and sports apparel which really brings everyone together. Shen offers tons of clubs and activities where students can connect with those who share the same interests. One of the coolest aspects of Shen in my opinion is the dark room. We are one of the last schools with a dark room used for black and white film photography. I had such an amazing experience in that class that I would have never gotten the chance to have if I didn't go to Shen. It's a great school with a lot of great opportunities!

Ballston Spa Senior High School
#3 Best High Schools for STEM in Saratoga County
- Ballston Spa Central School District, NY
- Rating 3.7 out of 5 256 reviews
Senior: My high school experience has been honestly one of the best experiences in my entire life. I've learned so much from the amazing teachers and staff that put their best interest forward. The community with the school is also amazing! Everyone is so kind hearted and nice. My education and knowledge wouldn't ever be where it was without the school.
The unique teaching styles of each teacher is what helped me learn any subject, with hands-on learning activity or virtual seminars with the covid-world we're living in. They've taken online learning very seriously and are even trying to plan safe and fun events for the seniors that are soon to be leaving. This school has been wonderful in growing my knowledge and making me the best student I can be.

Schuylerville Junior/Senior High School
#5 Best High Schools for STEM in Saratoga County
- Schuylerville Central School District, NY
- Rating 3.84 out of 5 69 reviews
Senior: Schuylerville High School is a very inclusive campus. There's a lack of discrimination among the students and staff, and you are always welcome to speak loud and proud. All students are encouraged to participate in sports, clubs, and even tutoring opportunities. However, I've noticed in the past few years that student involvement in school activities has declined. Although many of the kids willingly participate in various clubs, those who don't lack recognition in the school system. To further encourage kids to get involved with various programs, and to stand out of the crowd, perhaps extra credit could be given every time a student actively involves themselves in a new club or sport. This practice could also help high school kids be pushed out of their comfort zone, which in turn can boost their confidence.

South Glens Falls Senior High School
#7 Best High Schools for STEM in Saratoga County
- South Glens Falls Central School District, NY
- Rating 3.46 out of 5 125 reviews
Senior: My experience at South High has been very positive. Along with a strong focus on academics, character and preparation for the future are also regarded highly. Many programs are offered in sports and the arts to help students further their skills and abilities and take part in something they are passionate about. Teachers at South High care deeply about their students and do all they can to help them become the best they can be. If a student is struggling with something, the teachers will try to help and let them know that they always have someone to turn to if they are struggling or just need someone to talk to. The South High Marathon Dance is a dance held every year that raises money for people in need in the community. Students dance for 28 hours in support of the recipients and the community comes together to support this special cause. These are some of the reasons why South Glens Falls High School is a highly commendable school and I would recommend it to anyone.
