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.

A wonderful school! We were going to go private but we are glad we didn't . Our oldest is now in medical school.

Excellent school, great community involvement. I know many students and they are all excellent people and speak very highly of MHS.

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.

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.
