My son graduated in 2010 and my daughter graduates this year. We have been very happy with the whole experience. They have both done super well academically and socially. It's a relatively small high school experience and everyone is together from middle school through high school. There are plenty of honors and AP classes and opportunities. I think if you are involved and don't expect the schools to raise your kids this is a really good school district. I've met teachers from other neighboring districts that say they think Nyack is better in spite on "ratings". Go see the schools and get involved!

My daughter is enrolled in Nyack High School and she loves it. The teachers are great , the principal is so involved with everything going on. Its refreshing to see. School is what your kid makes it. I have seen that not enough people post positive ratings on things, but quick to post negative , so I hope this helps. Love the district.

I not only love NHS, I love the school system. Why? The teachers have always been very responsive to my son and me. When I have a concern, qustions or need assistance, there's always a rapid response.

Great school. In-laws went there, my husband and I, and our two children. Great chances for students to take AP classes and apply to college

The education you receive here is what you make of it. On the positive end there are enough course levels for students to seek what is right for them. However, there is essentially no guidance. The counselors would prefer to send perfunctory emails than help your child. Many students here fail courses, and the issues are swept under the rug. Among the popular groups it can be cool to fail, or put little effort into assignments. If you have a choice, surrounding school districts are rated better.

Nyack High School is a social mecca for teens, with limited supervision. The 'open' policy allows the students to leave campus, which works for some students, but not all. It is a great school for motivated students that find the process easy, but there are many distractions, noisy classrooms and some outright violent actions on students. Teachers turn the other cheek, rather than reach out in many cases, allowing kids to fail. So, from my experience what is good for some is not for all. Nyack is a great town, good all around.

Both of my children went to nyack. the oldest graduated and now is a lawyer. He got intersted in it by being in mock trial club and his W.I.S.E internship at a firm. He graudated with his advance regents diploma. My daugther thats a senior this year worked hard teachers help her with any problems she has. She is also doing the W.I.S.E internship class. She passed all her regents by staying after school. She does sports and gained a relationship with teammates and coaches. People say that nyack is bad or doesnt provide the needs of the child. But it depends how the parent raises the child. If your never at home your children will run wild. If your their talking to them listening on how their day went if they have any problems that you can help with. Nyack is the best school .

I have a senior and a freshman this year. The senior has been accepted to many excellent colleges and it's because of the education he has received here at Nyack. The courses offered suit every level of learning. The list of extra curricular clubs, organizations and sports must satisfy everyone and the theater and music programs are superior. The district is working to get the administration staffing right because of the retirements. My kids have never complained about feeling unsafe or ignored. My only concern is the parents who feel they know better than the staff and administation.

Parents of freshman son. The experience has been challenging and the school year is halfway complete. There is entirely too much freedom for students in the high school or at this freshman sophomore level. Constant firmness, teacher, guidance involvement I believe would help this teen process for all.

I have two children that have graduated and one that is a sophomore at NHS. All three lack basic reading and creative writing skills. I have spent thousands on tutors and SAT preperation classes. My youngest daughter and her friends speak daily of the fights and thefts that take place in the school. Students that don't attend class are walked through the final exams by some teachers. There are math classes where the sub is better known then the teacher. This has been going on for at least three years. Athletes don't have to hand work in on time. Text books are not collected. I've handed in thirteen since my children have graduated. I've spoken with parents that have a dozen or so books at home. I feel for the good teachers.

My son is in his freshman year at NHS so we haven't had much experience. Most of his teachers seem to be great. They are strong and interesting and very open to the students. I think the honors classes allow my son to be challenged appropriately. There are plenty of activities and all the students seem to find something attractive, but I seen really felt any great sense of community among the students

Not all it is cracked up to be.The class rooms are quite noisy which makes it difficult to take tests.The math regent scores where very low compared to the other schools in the district. It is very hard to get educational improvements for the schools because the senior citizens come out in hoards to vote down the ballots. They just don't want to spend the money.Their is a lot of problems in the district with bullying and many children are continually being picked on. A lot of the discline problems could be handled up front but instead they are overlooked by the teachers and principles.
