Gananda School District is a great district. R A Cirillo High School is not only safe but a great place to learn. The teachers are very involved and care for each and every student. The music and art programs are fantastic. Fifth grade on up all have the opportunity to join the school band. Gananda overall is great!

Curriculum is driven and limited by NYS standards. Overall academic programs good but math department weak for general population. Student academic apathy is a concern. Teacher quality is generally strong but high faculty turnover a concern. Guidance department works very hard for students. Various music/band and art classes available as electives. Both are quality with vocal music superior. Physical Ed. required by state and is also quality. Extracurricular act. available as buget allows. Yearly budget issues threaten sports and extras. Parent involvement limited to booster clubs for sports and music/theatre. School leadership has been viewed as narrow minded and too sheltering. This small community has many strong opinions. As a whole good students will do very well. Troubled students may not fair as well.
This school has a high student failure rate. The principal is not supportive of the students or parents. The students with disabilites tend to 'get lost in the system'.
My opinion is that this is a small school student-teacher ratio is good and with the size of the school its easy for kids to seek help teachers are there after school( middle school) for any student to seek extra help. Disipline is pretty strict but important in keeping the students accountable for their actions. Parents can be as involved as they want to be.
This school - although much effort is put into the development - focuses all too often on the disciplinary actions. Also the administration under which it is controlled is itself a dictatorship in which no student or parent has any individual rights. The academic life at Gananda is remedial at best. Not only does this school not prepare one for the 'real world' by its sheltered surroundings but it also lacks the one-on-one student to teacher ratio. The administration at Gananda is much too worried about the image it portrays than they are about the students that attend.
