  • This school is a joke. The teachers are sub standard and over paid. The teachers treat these young adults like children and rather give them free test points for following instructions like having a parent sign a form. Also the child that is in my care and attending Onteora High has special learning needs as well as a 5

  • after walking around the school i notice quite a number of areas that need attention,some are still there from last year and prior.it appears that a lot of work needs to be done both inside and out.

  • I don't agree with a lot of the principals the hall moniters go by. They have no lives and they never went to college and they take this anger out on the students. Also the ninth grade English teachers are both incredibly rude and lie to get themselves out of trouble. The girl's locker rooms are dirty and disgusting. The high school one has even had the same lockers since the 70's and the janitors never clean them. Several of the janitors are very unruly towards the students.

  • I think that Onteora needs to get a life. The hall monitors don't do anything other than eat donuts and roll around. The teachers have yet to discover the use of deodorant. The lockers need 2 be able to fit more than a cat, or a slice of paper. Therefor i give this school a F! (aka failing)

  • I think that Onteora is an OK school. Its teachers are not of the highest standards, but it does offer a lot of extra help for students if need be.
