Rensselaer Junior Senior High School 5

My son is in the 10th grade Questar Program. He is diagnosed Autism (high functioning) and is on the principles list for the 2nd year working in mainstream classes at Renselaer High School. However, most of all, I love his Questar teacher, Mrs. Silvernail. She is a great part of my sons success. She is very white/black which is very good for children on the spectrum. She keeps my son focused and works with the mainstream teachers to ashore a good fit for her students. If your child has great potential but has difficulty with sensory issues, then you need to consider the Questar Program at Renselaer High School.

Terrible experience! Teachers give no extra help to special needs students and push them ahead in grade when they clearly are not ready! The administration lies, the teachers are verbally abusive, the Principal does not effectively resolve bullying incidents and the food/beverages served in the cafeteria may be sold to students even tho past the use by date! All this school cares about is receiving aid funds. They don't care about the students.

There is nothing like Rensseleaer. The teachers are fantastic, the students are pretty fair and the atmosphere is something that is comfortable. I feel that as a Senior Rensselaer is something I am proud to be from. In fact it is so superb that I myself wish to one day teach there
