This is the ideal school for any kid who likes to have fun participating in afterschool activities, such as board game clubs, movie clubs, etc. This is a fantastic school, and provides a safe, healthy learning environment for students.

GN South Middle School is an absolutely incredible school! I remember the first day our daughter started 6th grade there, I actually came up to the Principal and ask if I could join!!! Their classrooms are all equipped with the latest technology, teachers are all like out of Hollywood (actors, comedians) while simultaneously extremely knowledgeable and professional. Very good resources; solid after-school programs and so much more! I am so thrilled our kids are going there.

I think the school is great but the students are so competitive. They want to beat you at everything. After my classmates get their projects/tests back they immediately turn to their friends and ask them what they got. The students also pressure you to get good grades. If you don't, they'll think you're not smart enough to be their friend. One thing that isn't fair is that 6th graders don't get to do after school sports. They can only go to clubs after school and they won't get a chance to compete in sports until next year. The teachers are great, but some of them are a bit strict and mean. The classrooms aren't that great. During the summer, one side of the hall is airconditioned and the other side isn't. If your class is in the one's that aren't airconditioned, you'll feel all hot and stuffy. The classes are great and they challenge you. We barely have school wide activities. Everyday it's the same schedule, doing the same thing. It can get VERY boring.

I am a student at South, and it is a great school. The principal, vice principal, and deans are all great. They have a morning broadcast every morning live, by student. I have been in the studio and it is so cool! It is a professional studio with kids working in it! I love South, it is THE BEST SCHOOL ever!

Love it there. We have a morning television broadcast, one of the best swim teams in the district, how can you not be impressed? Also, the majority of the population there is really smart. I should know. I hang out with them. I don't understand why all of these reviews are 3 stars.

I just moved to Great Neck from Delray Beach, Florida. I came here to get a good education. I have been a student at Great Neck South Middle School for a few weeks now, and I love it. The teachers are magnificent. The kids are kind, and polite, and nice. You can always get help if you think you are behind in a subject. The teachers are kind, and i've allready learned so much in just a few weeks. Probably three months of learning here is the equivilent to a year of learning at my school in Florida. They have a wonderful afterschool program. I know understand math and I rised from a D to a B. this school is the greatest.
