After my daughter in laws horrific experience where she was traumatized by the district administration, I have lost my faith in the Levittown schools. My husband and I started our teaching career in Levittown so we held it dear to our hearts. My daughter in law has moved on in her career but the experience was horrible. She taught those kids and loved them and they loved her.

This is a great school. Teachers are there to help. My daughter had a hard time with math. She spoke to her teacher, started getting extra help and before we knew it she was taking college math. Never heard of any bullying incidents, there is ZERO tolerance for it. My daughter really enjoyed this school.

This school has dedicated teachers who will do anything to the students succeed including giving up their time to give extra help. The schools administration is respected by all and the principle is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. The Honors, ACL, and AP classes are taught by great teachers who know their material and know how to present it effectively.

A great school, wonderful, dedicated and caring teachers/educators. Dedicated work staff. Outstanding extra-curricular choices for the students; superb sports department. Exceptional music department (Award-winning)...great group of students, who look out for each other and care about their community and school.

alcohol and drugs are a real problem here (as I'm sure they are in most Long Island school districts). But the school, and the community as a whole doesn't seem to be addressing this enough.

This school offers many ways to achieve, academically and socially. This schools offers a variety of books in the library and hads influnced nmy child in to reading more. Althought the smoking across the street has to end overall this school is a well maintained and displined high school.
