this is my first two weeks at sachem east and it has already impacted my life. The teachers in the school are very nice........ well most of them....... but they all actually know how to teach well. The amount of electives that are there are fantastic and very interesting. I happen to be in the AP World History program and even though I've only been in it for two weeks, all you need to do is stay on task and get reports finished in an organized manner. I am also in Science Research and it is also a great class that lets you do research on about anything you can think of. (from studying split hair ends to giving fruit flies anesthesia) I hope this has helped.
