Whitesboro High School
#334 Best Public High Schools in New York
- Whitesboro Central School District, NY
- Rating 3.78 out of 5 140 reviews
Sophomore: Whitesboro has something for every type of student. Everything was honestly great until COVID hit, but now some of the teachers don’t know how to use technology which is a nuisance for students. Most of my teachers have been making a decent effort to keep students engaged during hybrid learning. The football team is really good but leads to other sports getting overlooked. My advice to anyone looking at Whitesboro is to get involved in clubs music and sports. The music program has so many electives and extra curricular activities and all of the teachers are helpful.

Holland Patent Central High School
#509 Best Public High Schools in New York
- Holland Patent Central School District, NY
- Rating 3.05 out of 5 58 reviews
Senior: Holland Patent High School creates a tight-knit community, especially during times of tradition, like homecoming. Academically, we've added new programs, such as SUPA for English among many other AP and dual credit classes. A variety of classes are offered in maths, the sciences, social studies, and finance, yet a variety is lacking regarding the language department, where only Spanish and French give credit, as ASL does not. Racial diversity is lacking, as the high school is within a small rural town, which often inspires previously sheltered students to branch out, attending college or traveling to larger, more diverse cities. Teachers at the high school, for the most part, care deeply about the students and want to help them succeed as much as they can. The school hosts some strong sports team. Overall, Holland Patent High School provides a sound academic foundation for college, yet not necessarily a social one.

Poland Junior/Senior High School
- Poland Central School District, NY
- Rating 3.67 out of 5 33 reviews
Alum: What a really enjoyed at Poland is the close, tight knit family we had even with our school being a small rural school. Whether it was in the classroom, playing sports, engaging in the fine arts or enjoying activities in clubs and organizations. When going to Poland you could always count on someone which could be fellow student, teachers or higher faculty. As students at Poland we always knew there was someone that would always having our back. Parents were also a big component of Poland by participating in many activities. Our community was known for hanging balls on the light poles in the village to show our pride for the sports teams. Parents were proud and the players were excited to see their names mentioned.
One thing I would like to see is more higher level courses. If you were someone that was an honor student by the time you reached your junior and senior years your options were small for those individuals. Overall my experience was one to remember.
