The teachers are great at what they do, the location of the school is awesome. You could not feel any safer when attending school there. They practice fire drills, lock down drills, etc, just to make sure everybody is on the same page and knows exactly what to do if an emergency does come about. Skaneateles varsity sports have shown their great potential by winning multiple state championships and then more league and regional championships; such as football, boys ice hockey, girls ice hockey, girls basketball, etc. The music and drama programs are outstanding, every play and concert I attended, I was astonished on how well every person was, individually and as a whole. Skaneateles also has quite a few students who have disabilities. The program is incredible, for sure the best in the area.

The teachers and staff here are very involved, and they truly seem to have their students best interests at heart; be it academically or personally. Moving here my junior year was difficult, but it would have been infinitely harder without the resources I had for help. The guidance office makes applying to colleges so simple, they have answers for everything. The students truly have a voice in what happens at this school - our opinion matters.
The teachers were thoughtful, and always put in extra hours to spend time with their students. The school system was very competitive, and had members from the athletics department, education department, and musical department excel above and beyond many of the surrounding area's schools.
