Rensselaer Central High School Reviews
RCHS is a small town school. My children experienced problems with bullying over the years. The current principal did absolutely nothing. In my daughter's case I was forced to go to the local police to report the matter. Since then there have been fewer incidents but I suspect that is because the kids know I will go to the police.
There are several excellent teachers and other teachers who could not teach my dog to sit. The administration is obsessed with sports, especially football. Too much funding is spent on sports and too liittle is spent on the arts.
As long as you are a parent who is willing to fight every step of the way for your child, this school is as good as any other. All parents, especially today, need to be advocates for their children.
