Our school has a very wide area of academics to offer our students from the usual to vocational to instrumentation and automation instruction. Our students are accepted into the best of colleges including Harvard, Princeton, Vassar, Brown, MIT,etc. Our student population is diverse and the campus is beautiful.
I currently go to Sewanhaka and im trying to get out. I hate the school because as i have noticed the school is getting worse by the year and i think some of the teachers are rascist from my point of view, since i am African American.
This school is absolutely the best school in the district by far, hosting the advanced Instrumentation and Automation (Pre-Engineering class) and providing rare courses such as Physics C, and other great programs with over 62+ Varsity sports, this is the best school. I've been here since 7th grade. And i can honestly tell you that I've had no problems with no bullies or teachers. Do your work and have fun. It has alot of fun activities such as school talent show Follies, and other great activities for each kind of person.
I go to Sewanhaka right now and there are bullies and the teaching is not that great. I really hate it.
I currently attend sewanahaka high school.This school is great! Some people might think we are a bad school.But let me tell you.They are completely wrong! Shs is one of the most diverse schools on L.I& that just sums it up how great our school is. I love sewanhaka!
I feel that this high school is A+. My cousins went there and now my child goes to the JR high school/High School! Still Great.
Satisfactory school with a satisfactory academic record in regents testing.
This is a great school with plenty of academic options such as talented and gifted programs. To challenge each child based on there learning level from remedial to college level courses. There extracurricular programs have produced everything from cop to doctors to nba and nfl players.
This school is ok. I am very disappointed with their sports department.
Great high school. Has been around for about 80 years now and has had graduates that now excel at their best. Many whom now serve in the United States Army and etc. Also they have big fields to accomdate 'field sport' such as lacrosse, soccer, and track. Their district even has been awarded the Blue Ribbon for one of the Best Districts in New York State from the New York State. My son loves going their.
Sewanahak High School, I have three kids in the school and one soon to go to Sewanhaka. All three are doing exceptionally well in school. The teachers don't seem to lack in anything, they give a sufficient amount of homework, not a little, enough to keep the kids busy and not too much too overwork them. The school is very diverse so kids can get to know other people, cultures and how other people live. The school also has a very good business department. I have three kids in this school and one soon to come. I suggest to send your kids here instead of any other school, it is a school that all parents will be satisfied with when they know their kids are learning at Sewanhaka High School.
I am a student of Sewanhaka and I loved my years here everyone has some bad times through there life, I feel that these were my best years. My teachers always made sure I was staying out of trouble inside and out of school. If it wasn't for Sewanhaka I wouldn't be where I am today. I want to say thank you to Mrs. Driver-Churick, and Ms. Amadi. They have affected me a great deal!
I went to this HS a few years back when Mr. Kreutz was the principal. He was the only man who was able to 'tame' students. After he left, the administration was in for a complete surprise. The following year, it was as if the students were in charge, and it continues to be this way. They hire new teachers with very little experience which enable the children to have 'control' over the classroom. Also, the 'modified' classes have been eliminated so now the 'average' student has to be in the same class as a modified student, inhibiting their learning experience. If you have a choice, send your child to a different school. Attend at your own risk.
This school is divided into two groups: Those that are able to fit into the small 'advanced' classes and everyone else. Therefore, if your child is not in an advanced class they are in classes with the worse that the school has to offer. There is no middle group. This means that the majority of the school is not being given adequate instruction as the teachers are instucted to teach to the lowest functioning in order to include everyone in the lesson. That's fine for the lowest functioning, but what about the others? This is not serving the education of the community.
I am a former student of Sewanhaka. I did survive high school, but I firmly believe my high school experience would have been greatly improved if I hadn't attended this school. Students run the school while teachers struggle to maintain some control and in turn lose focus on what a school is supposed to achieve, EDUCATION. Even if a student is highly motivated and eager to learn it is difficult with all of problem students who hinder the learning process because of teachers who have either become frustrated and given up or don't realize that focusing too much on these types of students detracts from the experience of others. Lots of other not so great stuff going on there as well, I'm pretty sure you can figure out what I'm talking about. And they call themselves a school of EXCELLENCE?!?!
Academically, students have either very high or very low GPAs. Motivated students do very well, while the system tends to pass on students who do poorly. There is a relatively small amount of students in between. This school tends to lose a lot of teachers to higher-paying districts because of low parent involvement and the sheer amount of discplinary work the teachers have to do with their students. If it were solely a high school rather than a combination junior high and high school, I believe there would be a vast improvement in a Sewanhaka education. This would also relieve some of the overcrowding that this building suffers from.
