District is impossible to work with. Our sons attended from Pre-K to the last one who will graduate in 2019. There has not been a time that the administration or staff have ever helped us or our sons when they needed help. It`s the worst example of government employees managing to keep their jobs despite gross incompetence. We don`t recommend this district for any reason. There is no area in which they are competent as a district.

An excellent school in the finger lakes. The teachers were always engaged with students and local colleges prefer students with good academic standing from this school over most other local schools. Administration has always been difficult for parents, students, and teachers to work with.
