Catskill is a great school there is after school programs that help your children there is excellent teachers a strong principal. there is beyond the bell programs such as sys and ydp they help with homework and help your children stay fit with activities they spend time in classes with coaches
I had my three children attend Catskill, great teachers, but I found out that there is not much support for your children if they are 'average' to advanced their skills specially in english and math. Their classroom computers are outdated.
Catskill has hardworking teachers who care about their students. The principal is always visible on campus. They offer afterschool programs for students in need of extra help.
My granddaughter attends this semester and will not be returning next year. Granddaughter is behind overall, after school program does not apply to her age group/grade level. There has not been follow through by this administration.
As a former employee of Catskill, I saw first hand the results of a dedicated staff and top-notch administrators. The majority of staff members were continually striving to improve instruction and were extremely conscientious about their impact on the students' education. The administrators were always willing to listen to the concerns of teachers, support staff, parents, and students and took an active role in becoming involved in making a difference in the lives of the children at Catskill.
Excellent teachers who care for each student and have high expectations
My first grade daughter has been at Catskill since kindergarten. She has been very fortunate to have great teachers. Her kindergarten teacher was fantastic and my daughter really learned to school under her tutelage. Her current teacher is also great with the kids. The principal is very stern and sticks by her philosophy of allowing the kids to be independent. All in all it's a good school with good teachers but there is definitely room for improvement as it pertains to making the curriculum more challenging.
