Community ratings & reviews

  • (3 years ago)

    As a previous employee who saw all aspects of the school it is very poorly run. Many kids are in controll and administration does not follow up with discipline or back their faculty. There is a lot of bullying. The students here need love and have nowhere to turn. The school promotes diversity but that is not the case.

  • (6 years ago)

    This is a great school. The Lansingburgh community is very involved with the school district. This is one of the best public schools in the Troy area.

  • (6 years ago)

    This school is very poor. The principal is very strict.
