    Taconic Hills Central School District is the worst school ever. The food in the lunch line has plastic in it. and most of the food is not real. DON'T SEND YOUR CHILD THERE!

    I know there are some extremely challenging students at this school. If anyone spent the day with these teachers like I did they would come to see what a terrific job is being done. I wouldn't take it on for anything!

    As a former student and the parent of a current student this school is wonderful. My son will gradute from this school just as I did. Many of the teachers have taught for over 30 years in the school and are terrific.
