This school is absolutely horrible The teachers are constantly lose the students possessions faculty abuse their power The school looks tear down and nasty it is not a good learning environment for the kids and plus when it's time for a big test like the PARCC students are lost because the teachers did not teach done any of the things that are on the test. I do not recommend this School the school should shut down this is not a last resort you last resort should be homeschooled nobody should ever be go to this school because it is such a bad Learning environment and plus your Student will not learn anything

I have just viewed the Jersey City Board of Education special meeting held on March 5, 2013, The comments made at this meeting concerning Snyder School are very disturbing. I think that from these comments there should be a impartial investigation at once. I think Mr. Waterman is very concerned and will take appropriate action. I DO NOT KNOW WHY THIS SITUATION HAS BEEN PERMITTED TO GET THIS SERIOUS...VERY SERIOUS...WHERE IS THE COUNCIL AND THE MAYOR AND OTHERS WHO HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO RESPOND TO TEACHERS COMPLAINTS. IT APPEARS THAT THE SUPERINTENDENT AT THIS SCHOOL SHOULD BE PUT ON ADMINISTRATIVE LEAVE OR GO TO ANOTHER AREA. I AM NOT A TEACHER OR A PARENT. I AM JUST A VERY, VERY CONCERNED CITIZEN AND TAX PAYER...

Challenging academic programs and a great Parent Council Support! The Parent Council members work very closely with the Administration.

I am currently attending snyder high school and it is not a bad school if you do what you are suppose to do , follow instructions, do your homework and listen to your teachers. Snyder is like any other school, there's no such thing as a perfect school . The teachers are really helpful and they challenge us so therefore as students , we have to make sure that we do our part which is coming to school everyday and be ready to learn.

As a graduate of this school, I must admit that Snyder High School has prepared me for the future. The school has a history of violence, but it seems to be improving. A majority of the teachers are very nice and helpful and the administration tries its best to help the students. Distractions is common at this school, but if you ignore that, you can definitely do well in your academics. The extracurricular activities and magnet programs are not bad either. If you want to learn something and have fun at the same time, I would definitely recommend this school.

This school has great magnet programs, giving students experience in the fields of study they may be interested in after high school. The school environment is a lot safer than it used to be. The dress code is wonderful. What I like most about this school is that my children comes home on a daily basis and tells me about something new they have learned.
