Is Yonkers high better than Saunders high school?

Asked by Kayla.mcspeden, Mount Vernon, NY Wed Sep 11, 2013

I want to go to Saunders, because I've heard it's so much better than Yonkers High. It looks like Saunders is in a better area, it looks bigger, and it looks like its treated well.

I graduated from Yonkers High 5 years ago and if the quality of teachers, course materials, etc is still about the same level then I can tell you it is an excellent school. Saunders is also a great school and offers a lot of programs for specific career paths that allow student hands-on experience in fields such as cooking, HVAC and carpentry.

You should definitely look at the websites linked from previous replies because they provide a lot of statistical information such as performance of both students and teachers.

Visit and/or call any school you're considering; I'm sure there are staff available to give you any information you may need to make an informed decision and to better answer your questions. Good luck!

As a real estate professional, I am at risk of losing my license if I answer that question.

However there are many websites in the "Great Out There" that can give you insight. Just google Yonkers schools, and you will get all the answers you need.

Kayla,

Realtors are not allowed to provide opinions on school districts or neighborhoods.

Do consider going to websites such as SchoolReports.com or my website, http://GladstoneGroupRealty.com, which has links to school reports, and do your searches there.

Research on your own as "better" is really a matter of personal preferences...
