10 Parent Reviews for Pocantico Hills Central School

My daughter attends this school. The school is very tight knit and all of the kids from pre-k though 8th grade get to know one anothers names. My daughter is excelling here and they have a lot to offer in terms of the camp, pool and aftercare program. I wish the school offered more in terms of diversity ...  Read more

I've been doing my research about this school and have heard and read many good things about it!

While the administrative staff is excellent and the art/music programs are outstanding as noted, there are problems at this school. An anti-bullying program was instigated by the school for good reason.

The classroom sizes are small and the atmosphere is that of an expensive, private school. I have had my children in schools on both coasts, public and ...  Read more
