I know two kids who recently graduated from New Rochelle. One is going to the University of Chicago, and one is going to Wesleyan. Enough said.

Default the only nrhs review you will need from a actual student from class of 09..

ok so i just graduated form nrhs last month and wow what a trip.... the school is what you make of it all (4,000 students way over crowded by the way))....first off let me give you the racial break down ( from a school newsletter) 40% hispanic 35% black 20% white 5% other.... that was my graduating class... now what i mean is if you are focused you can do well ... if you mess up for just 2 days of laziness you will end up in the wrong direction for your high school carrier ..... my biggest concern is safety. it is a issue ....everything is very hush though so you will never know you have to be a student to really know. in the past 4 years i have seen days were there is 7 serious fights during lunch periods, i have seen security guards taken out by ambulance because of " thugs" i have walked into the bathroom and seen kids laying on the floor from strong acid ect and who can forget about the 4 stabbing after school that actually made the news?...if you want to get a feel for the school stand on north Ave. by chicken joes around 3:10 .... that is the real nrhs (new Rochelle High School ).... now another thing is night school ( when you get kicked out of day school) i was forced to go to this terrible experience because of a councilor who "couldnt make my schedule work") these are the worst group of kids i have ever encountered... they are all legal adults ( 18+) who dont care.. they come to class with there babys and drink in the back of the class room... now Imo originally from queensbridge queens just to put this all in perspective.... and i know for a fact my high school experience was not supposed to be like this.... o yea one more thing... the principle openly admits that the school doesnt have mettle detectors because the school has 32 exits/ entrences...well i hope this helps.....good luck

this is update i know i wrote on this before but this is my opinion after graduating... and one more thing. how dare people write about the school with out experiencing it first had? you are writing about what you have herd from someone else or writing about the way things used to be. don't post if you have not walked thru the hallways, taught at the school, or if your not a student your self because you have no idea what its like. thank you

My two older children graduated NRHS in '03 & '07. They are the least racist or homophobic kids I've ever seen in my life. Much of that is due to my wife's influence demanding respect for others, but it's also due to the diverse multi-ethnic influences at NRHS.

But, they had to survive a grueling high school experience. Crime and violence are a terrible problem at NRHS. Kids don't dare use the bathrooms without someone watching their back. Fights are common-place and you better quickly figure out what gang has what turf staked out and stay away.

IMHO, no one is honest about what goes on at NRHS. ubc91 is right, everything is hushed up, and I don't know how the school gets away with it. It never makes the papers or the news.

Donnnnnnn't buy in NR. Buy in Larchmont, Bronxville or anywhere other than White Plains, Yonkers or Mount Vernon.

Sorry, darlin, but your syntax says more about the education you received than anything any one of us can say.
Thank you.

I'm sorry but like your wrong. New Rochelle was voted one of the best places to raise your children. I loved the diversity. I have amanzing frinends from all different clutures! Ok there is no Gang violence in New Rochelle. And if there was any we have a program called G.R.E.A.T [Gang resistance education and training] NEW RO IS GREAT I <3 it you meet life long frineds here. And the great thing bout the diversity i have friends releated to jay z and other famous people. Its either you dont like someone or you do. There arent many fights. Anywhere you go there are going to be fights.

COME TO NEW RO!
