Poughkeepsie High School Reviews

By a Former Student on

This school is not bad at all.  Like every school, there are soe students in which are troubled and do not want to attend, but you can not judge a whole school based on a few students.  The teachers there are very knowledgeable and are truly concerned about the education of their students.  This school may not be the best, but it is a good school.

The students are hateful, disrespectful, and violent towards each other and everyone else in the building. A great deal of time is wasted each day dealing with people who don't want to be there. Can we streamline the process of expulsion, please?

The school is not bad, not at all. I just came here my junior year and i was nervous from what everyone was saying on this site, but no, its no different than any other ordinary highschool. So parents, its not the school you should be worried about, because its fine and the teachers are more than adequate, its worrying if you can trust YOUR child to stay in the books and out of trouble. Because I've been to other highschools, and there are narcotics and fights there too. It all comes down to if your child falls into peer preassure and does something idiotic. Us good kids are here in Poughkeepsie Highschool, and they're alot of us, WE WANT TO BE HEARD.

This school needs support from the community. The students have good teachers and great potential. All they need is that extra support to succeed here. It's a good school that offers students a good education if they are willing to learn.

I think it is a very good school...just need a lot of financial help...the teachers and administrators are great, the security system is great, and they make learning easy.
