Senior: Overall I have had a great experience at Haldane High School! I feel like they have prepared me for college in the best way possible. If it wasn’t for them, my grades would not be as good as they are now. One thing Haldane could improve on is helping us get a little more information about scholarships.

Brewster High School
#3 Best Public High Schools in Putnam County
- Brewster Central School District, NY
- 187 reviews
Senior: Like most schools, Brewster High School is full of many unique students that show passion for doing good in the world. It is an extremely safe school, to the point where the safety implementations can sometimes interfere with some freedoms that students have. There are many wonderful teachers that will guide and assist students towards being independent and begin to prepare students for real world problems. The teachers here show great tenacity and share humor and stories with students to brighten our day. The only problem I have with this school is the school lunches, as you might expect, lacking in quality. It would be nice to see the school implement more food options and improve on the quality of the lunches that are served everyday.

Mahopac High School
#5 Best Public High Schools in Putnam County

- 280 reviews
Parent: Mahopac High School is a great place to prepare your teenager for college. there are many sports and activities to get your children involved in and to build their resume. Teachers are somewhat underpaid in comparison to surrounding school districts, though well above the national and state averages. In recent years there has been a lot of turn-over in school administrative positions. NY State mandates have also made teaching in our schools ever-changing. The high school has recently updated some of its facilities. The sporting facilities are pretty good, though we do not have a pool and must use a neighboring town for swim team. There is a new lounge for high school seniors, and the food choices are pretty decent for cafeteria food. They include hot entrees each day, as well as pizza, sandwiches and a salad bar!
