Community ratings & reviews

  • (1 year ago)

    Sharon Springs Central School is a great place for kids to attend. The teachers are very caring and involved in the kids. Parents are involved in education and extra curricular activities. Community involvement is a big bonus.

  • (3 years ago)

    Sharon Springs Central School is an excellent school. The teachers always push the students to reach there max potential and there are many extracurricular activities that help students expand their max potential. The basketball teams has gone to sectionals many times and the soccer and baseball and softball teams have greatly improved over the years. For a small school they have a lot to offer and are always looking to expand on those opportunities.

  • (4 years ago)

    I found the teachers overall are very supportive of the children and concerned with their educational development. They could use some more programs educational and otherwise to further benefit the kids but I can definitely recommend the school.

  • (6 years ago)

    The school does not inform the parents of a child possibly failing until the end of the 3rd quarter. Not very informative.
