Francis Lewis is an amazing school. I am exceedingly proud of myself for doing so hard to get to this high school. The math and science program is extremely competitive but its definitely worth it! Many graduates of Francis Lewis have gone to amazing colleges!!! You have no idea how AMAZING this school is! If you have anything above 85 in math, science, ela, and social studies; your good to go!!! DEFINITELY GO TO FRANCIS LEWIS BECAUSE ITS THE RIGHT SCHOOL FOR YOU!!
I personally like the school program particularly science research program. Students learn a lot about science research. I lkie Dr. Blackwell very much for her encouragement to yhe students doing their resesrch. They read very nice science article and are uptodate with recent sciemtific research.
Francis Lewis High School, is one of the best schools in new york. I am now a junior in franny and i love it, the teachers are great they really get to know there students as if they are there own children. Every one in this school from a older student or a teacher or guidance even the principle make sure you do your best. If a teacher sees you are slaking they will make sure they lend you a hand and asin you a tutor to make sure you can do the best you can. The teachers prepare you in life but not only showing you the path to greatness but preparing you for the regents. This is one school i wish everyone could go to. I will 100% miss Francis Lewis when i graduate in 2 years.
I am a former alum of Francis Lewis. I attribute much of my success in life to the teachers I met at Francis Lewis. I immigrated to the US in Junior High and Francis Lewis was my first public school. The school is very diverse and is one of the best public High Schools in the area. I was given the opportunity to take AP (Advanced Placement) classes in my Senior year and as a result I was able to skip an entire semester in college. The College prep classes and counseling is also very good and I commend the school for offering classes that cater to a wide array of student types. One of my favorite classes "Genetic Engineering".
My children have attended Bayside Highschool from Sept. to Jan. I made a HUGE mistake taking them out from Bayside and putting them into Francis Lewis Highschool. This highschool is completely disorganized and the staff members are very rude. Francis Lewis is only focused on extracurricular activities not an academic education. Please DO NOT send your child here.
Francis Lewis is the best school ever!!! I am currently a freshmen and I am so happy that I got accepted here. The halllways arent as crowded as people say that they are, sure there is a little traffic here and there but it is not bad.
The best school in queens! The new principal, Mr.Shama has been doing great and has changed the school in a great way. The teachers are great, now if it wasn't so crowded....
which school do you think can support almost 5000 students which was made only for 2000?!
this school is great my daughter graduated with honors. im glad she got accepted there.
Francis Lewis is the best school ever i have to take a bus for three hours to get there and back, and it is the best because of the jrotc program and if it wasn't for that program and the school that keeps it there i probably wouldn't come
The JROTC program is one of the best, if not the best, on the east coast. The school is also known for it's overcrowdedness which isn't a joy. The teachers and the many foreign languages at the school make up for the extremely crowded hallways :]
