as a lifetime resident of this community i am compelled to review where i can the behaviors of the decision makers of this district.. when you pay taxes you should not and it should not even be considered that you pay a private firm fees to pay a taxed fee....they have a ethics review board for the teachers yet they are the ones in need of review....so here it is..yes if you plan on moving to cohoes....eeks...think twice....warning poor education....poor standards of behavior on decision makers.....thus the trick is on you....as it always trickles down THE CITY OF COHOES HAS REMOVED OUR RIGHT TO PAY OUR TAXES VIA INTERNET WITHOUT A MASSIVE FEE TO A PRIVATE FIRM....this conduct is unacceptable ....they do not understand the ramifications of their actions in this time of change.

I loved this school, I wish I could go back. Most of the students were respectful. Of course you will have that few who disrupt class, but very limited here. Teachers will take their time with you if needed. Everyone I knew loved it at Cohoes High School.

Cohoes School district has been wonderful for both of my daughters. The principals, teachers and staff are all very approachable with even the most minor concerns a parent may have.

I thought that Cohoes High (as well as the entire school district) prepared me very well for NYU. I'm extremely happy with my education and wouldn't of changed a thing, the environment is friendly and fantastic. Teachers are fabulous and people should definitely check out the Science Research department, it is great!
