Schaghticoke is a nice small town community. Everyone is very supportive of the school, the children, and the sports. Everyone knows everyone, and growing up in a small town, I loved that. I would always recommend Schaghticoke to anyone looking for a nice community with a great school education and sports wise.
The Mechanicville/ Schaghticoke area is a great place to live, the vivacious people and the community events held daily are the staple of the area. We have a great family atmosphere in this town where everyone looks out for each other. The people in our school district have known each other for 13 years, creating a great atmosphere within the school. I see a bright future for this town, things are leaning towards the better and I can't wait to see what it holds.
