Junior: 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.

Alum: School itself was kind of old but safe and a nice school. Administrators were questionable, went through three administrators in four years of high school. Academics were good, not every AP class was offered but the ones that were offered were taught well. Guidance counselors really helped you understand what was required of you to prepare for college in terms of applications and paperwork. I loved it there, things could definitely be improved but it was overall a good experience.

Senior: I love Schenectady high school because the diversity and sense of community at the school. There are so many different clubs and activities to be involved with, but no one is excluded from anything. I love the fact that I can have so many different friend groups and no one cares who you are friends with. But I think the teacher-student relationships need to be better as well as with the administration. The administration cares too much about kids just graduating, because our grad rate is very low, and not enough about what comes after high school. I was lucky enough to be apart of the IB program so there were adults around me who cared about what I wanted to do after high school. It is really unfair to the students not in enriched classes and are lost in the system.
