Briarcliff High School
#20 Best Public High School Teachers in New York
- Briarcliff Manor Union Free School District, NY
- 75 reviews
Senior: The high school is a high performing school for its intense sense of competitiveness and offers different opportunities and experiences to even the newest students. Its student body is overall fun and energetic. As for teachers and faculty, they all are great people once you get to know them and are actively helping students whenever possible. If you are a student looking for a challenge, this place is a perfect fit. However, you may need to help yourself when it comes to joining clubs as there isn't the grandest spectrum of subjects for extracurricular activities. As well as that, Briarcliff places the student in a strong role to guide themselves to reach out for help, find out information about colleges or courses, and even look for scholarships. Upon entering the high school, you think you know it all, but once you graduate, you know really understand how much more you should learn once you're off to college!

Niche User: I personally have had the honor to participate in a lot of the schools programs. I've have been a part of the Varsity Dance Team for four years and Captain for two, raising $25,000 over the past four years through our dance expositions for multiple charities. I have been involved in the Soccer and Lacrosse program at the high school. The String Orchestra and many other clubs such as SWAC (student Wellness advisory committee) and Red Ribbon (HIV/AIDS). I have also been part of the Senior mentor program which is very unique and different in our school than other school's mentor programs. As 1 out of 18 seniors chosen in the entire grade me and my partner taught a class of 24 freshmen 1st period teaching them how to adjust to high school and important life lessons and tips they would need in order to be the best and do the best they could in the next four years in high school.

Senior: Pleasantville High school is very dedicated to the individual students by giving them a home away from home. They treat you as individuals, yet, as part of a community. They view academics very highly and integrate sports and other extracurriculars into daily conversation and class discussion to get students involved.

Senior: I am a senior at Westlake High School. The best part of my 4 years here has been the Music and Arts Program. We have a thriving environment to express ourselves through school plays, music concerts and a wonderful AP Art Program. We are a public school and are fortunate to get all supplies we need including a photography dark room, a kiln for ceramics, all necessities for drawing and painting and an extremely large studio to work in.
Our Foreign Language Program however, is limited to only 2 offerings, Spanish and Italian. I would like to see this changed to include maybe French, Mandarin, Latin and Arabic.
