Both of my children graduated from Mahopac High School. They are both outstanding, productive and successful adults. I owe part of their success to this school. I would be thrilled to have my grandchildren attend this school someday.

I am now a sophmore in mhs. Because I am a Asian American in a mostly white school, I do feel some discrimination, even if its not flat out racism. I think the school doesnt address racism to minorities other than african americans enough. Many students are very ignorant of other cultures. There are many bad teachers, but that cant be helped because it's like that everywhere. Don't get me wrong, there are also some amazing teachers. I recognize that this school has many great things about it and opportunities. I hope that the school can improve.

Both my daughters attended Mahopac High School and went on to top colleges. This school district is an excellent value for the taxes you pay. Teachers were dedicated, many high-quality AP courses were offered, and the extra curricular activities offered were outstanding. I am extremely happy with the education my children received here.

A wonderful place to educate your children. Lots of opportunities for children and a close, caring community. Mahopac is a lovely town.

The Mahopac School district has been good to our family. We expect to get out of it what we have put in. My wife and I spend time with our children on a daily basis reviewing and overseeing, but we are overall happy with our results. The football and sports programs are also well run. There is a real sense of community, straight forward and at least you know what your getting.

Quality of education at the high school is nowhere near proportional to the amount of taxes paid by homeowners in Mahopac. The establishment of older teachers without proper motivation for performance keeps bringing down the quality of education there. We purchased a house here motivated in a big part by the advertised "Blue Ribbon" school system, but we are terribly disappointed by the reality...We are seriously considering moving back to Westchester before our older son goes to high school here in Mahopac.

the biggest mistake I have made is switching my children from a private school to Mahopac High School. I have had nothing but trouble in this school. my daughter is a senior and now it's tooo late to switch her back. I would not recommend this school district to anyone. They call themselves blue ribbon schools. They haven't been blue ribbon since the 90's.

This school cannot offer kids anything. They do not have enough teachers for the kids that they have. Most classes are unavailable to take because of the reduced teachers. They have 5 principles which is obviously not needed. They spend money on building a new entrance rather then hiring more teachers. I would not recommend this school.

This school offers an excellent opportunity for strong academics especially for bright students who require broad course offerings and honors classes. Much better than private school alternatives in the area.

This school is great! My kids were in private school until middle school. I see a difference. From a parent who (thought) was paying for higher quality education, I almost did an injustice to my children by not moving to Mahopac sooner. No school is perfect. The complainers and haters should be more involved with their child s education. School is not a form of babysitting. I m a fulltime working parent. If your child wants to learn, the achievement and possibilities are endless. In addition to regular classes, AP and college courses are available. Extra help in every subject is available if needed. The teachers and the principal are open to suggestions and appreciate parental involvement. The school and the neighborhood is very very safe. I am proud to announce my child will be going to a top college in New York in the fall.

I've found the high school to have great math teachers and social studies teachers..the science seems weak..I think parent involvement is great compared to my other school district (Lakeland). As for environment, the school is very large, almost the size of a small college...there is relatively no violence for this size school. As for cliques, all high schools have this problem and luckily we all live through it and get to college where it is so different. My overall review is great!

i've gone to school here, it has a good academic program and i have had some excellent teachers and learning experiences, however the other students here are outright nasty and unwelcoming especially if you are a new student. there are also many cliques in the school which result in a fair amount of social problems. in my opinion if i could restart my high school career elsewhere, in another school, i would have.

-Academic programs are fair, however their is wasteful spending on technology and useless electives. -art and music are also fair, no longer a top tier orchestra program. -too much youth violence for a suburban school. -parent involvement is non-existant

The academics at Mahopac High School are fantastic. I had some of the best teachers of my life there. I felt that the science and math at this school was the strongest, but they also have great english, history, foreign language programs as well as many other special interest classes. They also offer more AP classes than most high schools for more advanced students. The music and drama programs are excellent, as are the sports.

I like it so far, but it is school. The after school activities are very fun and our marching band pwns.
