Posted February 23, 2004

I have one boy graduate, who had the potential to be an 'A' student and was in elementary level but his learning experience slowly went down hill due to negetive support from his peers and some teachers and adminstration. School became a safety concern, violence and drugs became a huge concern. I now have one boy in 10th grade and the same concerns exist. I also have a 7th grader who is experiencing the same experience. This school district seems to more worried about lawsuits than standing for justice for all.

Our art and music program are outrageous and the athletic programs also ranks favorably. The adminstrators are God-sent, doing an excellent job unifying a very large, very diverse school. The only complaint is on the parents behalf and their lack of involvement. The staff is doing all they can, now it is up to the parents to meet them half way.

I am in this school as a volunteer parent. I also have one graduate and one in 10th grade. There are security guards at every door. They do nothing to prevent fights or kids leaving the building. Kids come and go without a problem. Kids curse loudly and talk back to teachers and other staff without consequences. I think many of the kids are out of control. On the flip side, we have the best sports and music programs on Long Island. We have so many clubs to join there is something for every child! We have many success stories coming out of Floyd but we have an equal amount of drop outs and gangs and non-involvement of parents make a no-win situation. I know we are like most other districts only Floyd is an extreme case.

As a parent of two William Floyd Graduates I can say that William Floyd offers a good education a vast number of extra-curricular activities including an award winning debate team, award winning robotic team and a Grammy winning Music Dept.
