I loved Suffern High School! They prepared me for college and are the reason I am where I am today! The facility is great, students are amazing! The athletics program is amazing. The AVID program within Suffern High School is the best thing that students can be involved in and it truly helps the students be the best they can be.

I love going to Suffern High School. It's been an amazing 4 years. I've made amazing friends. The people I have met and the connections I've made. You will always find someone that you can connect with. It's been a great experience. The teachers here are very helping and kind. There are many things to do here. You can join clubs, extra curricular activities, sports and many other opportunities that Suffern high has to offer. I would honestly not switch to another school even if I got the opportunity because I really do love this place. The community is very welcoming and you would not ever feel judged going here.
I had a really great time at Suffern High School. They offer a lot of different courses in a variety of subjects and topics, which made it easy to find an elective that was interesting. Many of the teachers are knowledgeable and fair, and always pushed me to try my hardest. There is always opportunities to challenge yourself at Suffern High School, through college level courses or AP classes. One unique thing about SHS is that everyone eats lunch together, at the same time. This creates a welcoming environment as well as a sense of community. Someone will always help you find a class if you are lost, and are just overall nice people. In my 4 years there, I never felt that I was unsafe or in a dangerous place.
