Pine Bush Senior High School
#329 Best Public High Schools in New York
- Pine Bush Central School District, NY
Senior: I like the diversity within the school, how involved the teachers are with getting students to do their best to succeed, and they genuinely care about each student. I dislike the security guards, they are always questioning where you are going even when you literally just walk out the classroom.

The Town School
- Private School
- New York, NY
- PK, K-8
Alum: I went to Town from Kindergarten through Eighth grade. I so loved my experience that I've stayed involved with the school twenty-plus years later, and I have maintained life-long friendships. I work in the writing world now due in no small part to Ms. Siegel's fifth grade English class. I still remember Bridge to Terabithia! Ms. Siegel opened my eyes to reading. It was first time I stopped looking at the page numbers.
Having no high schoolers really allows for Town students to grow into leaders and to take on active roles in the community. In the upper school, fifth through eighth grades, I served multiple terms in student senate (sadly I lost in my eighth-grade presidential bid). Playing ten-plus competitive soccer and basketball games starting in fifth grade not only helped improve my skills on the field, it gave me a head start on learning to be a teammate and a leader. These experiences served me well later when I would be captain of multiple varsity teams at Dalton.

Middletown High School
#496 Best Public High Schools in New York
- Middletown City School District, NY
Senior: My highschool experience was great. Everyone is friendly, of course you have people who aren't but if you get into something you like whether it is sports or music like me that creates a foundation for you. A second home, you get to go on cool trips and compete! The school also provides college courses completely free which gives you a head start on college. Most SUNY schools take and accept the credits. I think the only thing Middletown Highschool has to correct is their choice of words towards specific things. Like for black history month they gave us watermelons and fried chicken which is really just a stereotype. Overall though, the teachers are really good they care so if you are struggling in anyway they help they stay after and it's a great way to actually get some alone time other than being in a classroom where you feel intimidated to speak up.
