I am a student here and i don't like the school at all. I feel that the school focuses a lot on sports. more then any of the other electives. the teachers that i have don't really teach there are a few that have a passion for it but mostly they just put on videos of other people teaching. There are defiantly favorites. The school has a tight budget. i really don't like the school. but thats my opinion. but if you like sports this is the school to go to.

I currently have two children at North Rockland. They are very happy. My son is taking a couple AP classes this year as well as a couple classes for which he can get college credit. Both my son and daughter have had a great time in the theater program. Budgets have been tight lately due to a lost law suit with the local power plant about past taxes, but not horribly drastically. I would choose North Rockland over many schools in the county due to its diversity and breadth of programs.

The school is beyond excellent. I am a graduate of the high school and I am now currently student teaching there. The parental involvement and leadership that is shown at this school goes beyond words.

Depending on the courses you take, the amount of hw can vary. But all in all, there is too much homework given. In the beginning of the year, i can keep my grades up very well. Come winter rack season, everything slips away. I barely have time to eat, sleep, or be a normal teenager. Most of my energy is put into studying and doing hw, or time at practice. When theres meets, theres times where i wont come home till 9-10:40! Mind you, I still have hw to do. And yes, you can argue and say that i could so hw at the meet, BUT what about the many times hw requires a textbook..which is at..you know..HOME. I hate this school and i cant wait to leave. So glad im a junior.

There is no question that we r an amazing. We have killer sports teams. We have so many clubs that gives people the opportunity to get involved in. We have an award winning newspaper the rambling raider. The really cool thing about NRHS is if there isn't a club for your interests then you have the ability to create your own club. So again North Rockland High School is the best school ever

Rockland High School has such a unique atmosphere- we don't really have clique problems like other schools. Almost anybody can talk to anyone about anything. You know how on TV and in movies everyone worships the cheerleaders and the 'popular kids'? Yeah. We don't have that. Plus, everyone is involved. There are few students who don't belong to a single club. We have a Gay-Straight Alliance, Aspira, Anime Club, an award-winning newspaper (The Rambling Raider), several teams, and a multitude of other things to do. If, for some bizarre reason, your interests aren't represented by a group, then you can create your own. Most of the teachers are great- helpful, informative, and kind. Classroom attitudes are usually relaxed, but not so relaxed that stuff doesn't get done.

NRHS is filled with amazing students and awesome teachers. The principal and assistant prinicpals are all so motivational to us, along with the rest of the staff at NRHS. There's no other school community I'd rather be a part of, and I'm proud to be a Red Raider!

This school really prepared me for college. I am now a college graduate with honors and a Bachelor's in Computer Science, Business, and Communications. *I highly recommend this school!*

I attended NRHS, my husband and recently our two daughters. It is one of the best schools around. My daughters loved their high shool years, and both were very involved with sports, activities and clubs. I will miss being involved with NRHS, since our youngest graduates this year ! Thanks for all of the memories NRHS..

I currently go to this school, I personally really like it..it's so diverse and there are so many programs to get involved with. Teachers here help you if you need help and there are good resources and oppurtunities here. I have seen a lot of great people graduate from here, my dad graduated from here and he's become so successful in his life.

A very big disappointment. High dropout rate and taxes, and a lot of over crowding. I will not have my other two kids go to school there, so I am moving down to North Carolina. That's all I will say.

I attended NRHS and could not have asked for a better high school career. There are a variety of honors and AP programs, endless amounts of extracurricular activities and sports, and a staff of dedicated teachers. I went on to attend college and graduate school, and this was made possible by the education and the encouragement given at NRHS.

North Rockland High has produced and will continue to produce top quality students for our next generation.The district has gotten a bad 'rep' for students that don't 'succeed' as compared to other schools, but that is so not the case. All academic programs offered parental involvment are so outstanding that other communities should follow our footsteps. Be proud North Rockland. To me your not a school with a bad 'rep' but a school filled with leaders, not followers.
