“It’s closer to home and the people are nice and fun to talk to!” -Conor Terrell
“It’s great that computer rooms are available to students. The teachers help out a lot. I’d like to see academic counseling and tutoring more often.” -Elvis Guerrero
“My entire Westchester Community College experience has been in Peekskill. Classes are fun with a balance of challenges and motivation. If I had the funds, I’d be interested in the non-credit classes. Anything creative and hands-on, like animation, art, and writing. I’d like to see clubs for things like drama, choir, art, and film.” -Jessy Gonzalez
“I made my schedule last minute and Peekskill had classes available. It’s close to home, so I don’t have to spend a lot of time driving to Valhalla. Longer tutoring hours would be helpful and clubs for math and literature which can help someone catch up.” -Carlos Garcia
