Alum: Wellsville is a close knit community, which transfers to the school. The school spirit is overwhelming and one of the greatest experiences of the school. Last names often help to gain leverage within the school, as some students are punished unfairly. Overall, the school has great academics but prepping for college could be improved.

Andover Central School District

- Andover, NY
Senior: Andover Central School is extremely unique. Our school definitely has many advantages and many disadvantages but I wouldn't have changed where I go to school for the world.
Our school is extremely small with a graduating class of about 27 kids, this to me is a huge advantage because this gives us a close relationship with our peers and our teachers. Our teachers care about their students they want us all to succeed in our own ways. When we have questions we go to them and ask for help and they know exactly who we are and how we learn and are completely willing to help.
Some of our disadvantages are that having such a small school leaves little room for diversity and choices of which teachers you would rather work with. This leaves little room for more than the standard courses. We don't have the opportunities bigger schools are able to offer but I believe that this is made up in the quality of the courses we do have.

The Beekman School
- Private School
- New York, NY
Parent: Our teen took two 2018 summer school courses (English and math) at The Beekman School. Toward the end of the summer our student told us she would take any class offered by either of her instructors. That is high praise coming from a teen.
In addition, two of our teen’s summer school friends said that the number one draw of The Beekman School is their gifted instructors. One student attends The Beekman during the regular school year and the other was pressuring their parents to remain in the States in order to attend during the year.
The Beekman School summer and tutoring programs are worth every penny. I don’t know how they manage to make exceptional instructors the norm rather than the exception, but they do.
