As a previous student here, I find the four out of five star rating surprising. Taconic Hills was a school that gave me very little hope for a prosperous future. It was full of students whose family's had lives in the area for generations, and as a result I could often feel a very distinct difference between myself and the other students, even though I had been going to the school since kindergarten. This was not helped by the fact that I was one of the only Jewish students in the school, something I was ostracized for not only by the students, but by the teachers. There are intelligent students at Taconic Hills, but they're greatly outnumbered by kids who don't care about school, including many students that are far older than they should be (I had a twenty year old in my sophomore class). In the end, I ended up dropping out after my sophomore year, and starting at Bard College at Simon's Rock. I've never been happier, nor felt any desire to go back.

Taconic Hills has excellent test scores and dedicated teachers who are always going the extra mile. It makes a parent very pleased to see that each teacher will take the extra time to help students understand a concept, even if they are not technically their student. There are residency program opportunities for students to explore their world. For instance, professional directors come to the school to produce a Shakespeare play in the fall. Dollars for Scholars of Taconic Hills has reached the $1 million mark in scholarships for graduating TH seniors. This is the place to be!
