I'm a student at CCHS and i absolutely HATE it. The only up in my day is Orchestra and that's about it. Even my dad agree's that Cornwall is a Sports town. It will always be Sports > Arts. I don't even know who the new principal even is. The teachers who have a tenure could care less, yes there are teachers ...  Read more

I'm going to tell you a little bit about us Dragons. A lot of people say we are overrated, rich, white kids who only care about sports and like to party A LOT. For all the haters drinking hatorade, let me remind you.... We have the best quarterback in New York state. We love sports here in Cornwall ...  Read more

Hello, My daughter is in seventh grade and is an honors student. I am debating sending her to Cornwall versus a private school. Certainly Cornwall would be much easier. Can any of you comment on the AP courses and the college placement for the last 2 years. I have heard that over the last few years ...  Read more

This school is for the average student. If you or your child is an over-achiever, then I would suggest a private school. This is one of the best public schools in the area, however, the grades for AP classes are not as weighted as much as other schools. This means that you or your child would have a ...  Read more

I agree with the last comment. This school is over rated. They don't challlenge the students. Their way of teaching is based on memorization. The teachers don't seem to care as they have tenure. The College guidance counselor could not care less. This is very lamentable given the amazing campus they ...  Read more

I am unfortunately stuck in a school too preoccupied with sports to care about academics. If you are not an overachiever and are an average student, you'll fit right in. I have been told that this school does not cater to the higher end of the student spectrum (aka, those who are preoccupied with actually ...  Read more

Teachers are stuck in the 80s. Not very modern ways to teach. It's all about memorization. Creativity is not encouraged. Einstein would end up in the special ed wing would he attend Cornwall schools ! I see smart kids being neglected because they don't fit in their unique model. too bad.

Very average school. teachers not supportive. a big disappointment given the taxes. The sciences program is low quality. only the language / history and art were satisfying.

I disagree ,to a great degree ,with previous reviewers. My child experienced significant personal issues during the past two school years. The child is not involved in theatre or sports. She is a bright but not top student. Cornwall Central High School couldn't have been more supportive both academically ...  Read more

It is quite unfortunate but my daughter did exceptionally well at this school due to her being in advanced classes and interest in extra curricular activities they have. My son who is not in advanced classes so I am finding out why others have said and plenty I know took their kids out to send to private ...  Read more
