Rye High School
#16 Best Public High Schools in New York
- Rye City School District, NY
Senior: I've had an enjoyable time at Rye although I lament it's lack of diversity and wish I'd been more exposed to different perspectives. Despite the lack of diversity, however, students at RHS are on the whole very open-minded and accepting of others. I've had a pleasant experience as an openly out LGBT person without being the victim of or witnessing bullying of any sort.
Most of my teachers have been well-qualified and good at their jobs. A small few have been sub-par or just awful at teaching. The science department in particular I feel is lacking in strong teachers. Rye does have a strong and well-resourced art department for a public school, and breeds many creative students by offering an array of opportunities and encouraging artistic accomplishment. The school does a good job of preparing students for the rigor of college, yet the atmosphere is quite competitive and can be challenging to deal with at times, especially for the majority of students with such busy schedules.

Rye Neck Senior High School
#48 Best Public High Schools in New York
- Rye Neck Union Free School District, NY
Senior: Rye Neck High School is a tight knit community with great academics and a good community. Since the school is fairly small, most people are friends with each other and teachers are always free to help you out with any personal problems you are having in any classes. The school has a variety of clubs and activities and makes it easy to get involved with them or start new activities, and the administration is open to ideas. Overall, Rye Neck is a great place to spend your teenage years as you become close with many more friends and have access to top tier academics before college.

Rippowam Cisqua School
- Private School
- Bedford, NY
- PK, K-9
Parent: Rippowam is community of educators and students who care! A challenging, relevant curriculum engages students in real world conversations and challenges. We have experienced every grade, 5-9 and could not be more impressed with the outcome for each of our (very different!) children. They are challenged, encouraged to take intellectual risks, think critically and analytically and step up to take on leadership roles. All along the way, they are supported and feel known as individuals. Their teachers know their strengths, know when to push them further and know when to adjust to their specific needs in the moment.
Ripp empowers its students with confidence, empathy and critical analytical and communication skills (they become powerful writers and speakers). They are learn real leadership skills and leave poised to succeed in high school.

Harrison High School
#62 Best Public High Schools in New York
- Harrison Central School District, NY
Senior: I think that the quality of the teachers at Harrison High School are the driving force of its excellence. There are most definitely some undesirable aspects of the school, but I think that the superb quality of the teachers overrule that entirely. Aspects of the school such as the administration appearing to lack understanding of the students along with how the school budgets its construction projects disproportionately are important to think about when considering a student's livelihood at Harrison High School. With all that being said, I believe that the quality of the educators present possess the power for students to propel themselves towards their personally individualized outcomes regarding what it is that they'd like to get out of high school.
