This high school school has a wonderful teaching staff. The highlights are music (both band and chorus), ceramics and photography, Science Research, and the math department. I think the school is very successful judging by student achievement. The principal is lacking in communication skills, leadership, and discipline. enforcement.

This school seems to approach a more do-it-yourself attitude, the students are lest to for the most part teach themselves, and also fend for themselves against the gang violence that has plauged the school for a while now. The failure rate is above state average, but the ones that excell are very intelligent capable at being the next person to find the cure for AIDS or athletes foot or something to that effect. The school has a cheap administration that believes that money is best left unused unless it's for something like hiring the occasional security detail of local thugs.

As in any school the instructors are uneven. There are some great teachers but incompetence is the norm. There is a wide range in the motivation and abilities of the students which is to be expected in a public school, but the administration has really chosen to strive for mediocracy. Great music program.

I went to rondout valley high and the staff were well educated and very good at their profession. The principals are currently quite inneficient and uninformed about their school but all in all the school is a good institution of learning.

I LOVE RONDOUT VALLEY MIDDLE SCHOOL!!!! Since i am soon becoming a new addition to the high school, i look forward to a great 4 years. Its a good school if you pay attention in class but if you dont its just going to make things worse for you. Although some kids and parents dislike this school but it's really not that bad. The staff and teachers are amazing in the middle school and i'm pretty sure the high school staff is too. ~Ashley

My daughter's life was in danger when she attended Rondout Valley High School because of a gang there after her and all I got from them was the run around. That school district definitely favors certain students while others get treated like they're nothing. I was lied to often by those working there and they were serious matters too.

I am a dissapointed parent of a Rondout Student. In my opinion, I feel the following statements: The teachers seem for the most part disinterested, there are a few that excel. The principles have not taken an active role. There is a lot of favoritism in this school. My son was dyslexic and the teachers never picked up any difficulty. I had him tested in 4th grade, up until that time I was assured by the teachers he was just a lazy student.
