Henry Snyder High School Reviews


By a Current Student on

Snyder high school is given a very bad rep. The truth is that unless you attend or visit Snyder then you wouldn't  know that its better then what the public opinion on it is. Snyder has respectful students, sure maybe two or three students may be disrespectful but you can always have them removed from the classroom. This year almost all 2014 juniors of Henry Snyder high school passed the HSPA. Did anyone come down here and give us recognition, no, however, we don't need someone else approval to tell us that we are one of the best.
The teachers in Snyder can take your students knowledge from 50% to 80% or higher unlike other schools that choose the top kids to attend there. The high schools that choose the top kids only take that child from a 85% to 90%. I would rather be taught 30% then 5%. Snyder is a really cool school

I attended Snyder HS and graduated in 1973. I had many inspirational teachers that provided the motivation to succeed.

I was scared to attend this school at first due to the reputation that it has. Ironically, I felt I was home during my four years . I was in the science magnet  program and it was the best thing that ever happened in my life. I graduated college with an associate in applied science fr. UMDNJ and I have a career as registered dental hygienist. Thanks Ms. Watson for the inspiration.

Snyder is a very wonderful school because the teachers treat like your their children. They make sure that you get proper learning skills that you will need for college and basic life skills. Of course they have their problems just like any other school but they do their best to resolve any conflict that have among their students.

Snyder High school doesn't get enough credit. i'm a freashman. I mat not know mach but what i do know is  i love it that snyder . i toll my friends that i was going to snyder they frecked out. Snyder is not that bad .But i can see why parents are worried for ther kids. But the parents need to learn that there son or daugther might be bad in school but good at home . The lessons are good for the child's mind.The principal is nice. So, all i'm to say, parents and student, is the school don't make its bad, name the students do.
