In the high school it is a free for all where administration is involved. They don't support their staff and turn a blind eye to many students depending who there parents are or who they are related to.

My school is a very decent school. A lot of opprotunities such as Ulster County Boces Career Tech Center. Currently, I am a senior attending Onteora and Boces. I am taking CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) by the end of the year I will be set with clinical hours and a state certification (if I pass the test). I do believe that our sports program could be approved. Some coaches and gym teachers are extremely rude and harsh on children. Overall, as long as you aren't a bad kid and you do your part in the school you will get by with flying colors.

This is a decent school in an area that is losing population. Unfortunately, the district tore the K-6 schools apart for political reasons creating two K-3 schools and one 4-6 school and now elementary students are scattered across a very large geographic area. The result is that families may have students as little as a grade apart in two schools or may even have kids in three schools that are nowhere near each other. It is very difficult to pick children up since they are so far apart and the bus rides are long. Once they get to 7th grade it consolidates but any parent who wants easy access to their children should think long and hard about moving to this area.

My school that I go to isn't very good. The teachers can be rude and the students are very stuck up and stubborn and can be rude towards people. The students are start rumors a lot and can bring you down easily. There are a lot of pot heads as well.

I came here as a transfer student into 11th grade from a private school. At Onteora, I found so many different options, rigorous yet rewarding ap classes and guidance councilors and teachers that took the time to organize and catch me up on the classes that I had missed at private school. Of course Onteora has its flaws, as it is well underfunded, but it has an amazing staff that is so dedicated and passionate, who care about you and your academic career. This school may look dated and unsuccessful on the outside, but if apply yourself, and care about your grades you can really achieve a lot. This year, I'm graduating and going to one of the top schools in the country, and I know I couldn't have done it with the amazing teachers who inspired and helped me at Onteora.

The school offers challenging classes with excellent teachers. They have a strong art and music program and offer a wide variety of sports and extra-curricular activities. Bullying is close to non-existant and the administration is doing a lot to make a positive environment.

I graduated from Onteora and went on to major in engineering at a top-ranked university. I found, in college, that I was seriously behind other students academically because Onteora's curriculum was not rigorous enough. I think for a small country high school, they try hard, but this school simply can't compete with better national high schools. I ended up graduating from that great college but it was not without significant effort on my part to catch up to what my secondary education did not provide.

I believe this school does about the best it can, we have some ad teachers, but we have some great ones. We have good art and music programs, among other things and bullying truly isn't a huge problem.

This school needs to stop the bullying and enforce it's rules better. To many students get away with too much.

This school needs better discipline. The kids get away with way too much there.

The school is ok but doesn't have enough school activities to help the kids feel a sense togetherness of belonging...

I feel this school needs more teachers and a bigger building. There isnt enough there for the students. some other schools have amaizing art and keyboarding programs yet, Onteora doesnt have those for the students. they need a bigger variety. this will also help them get into a better college if they have elective skills.
