Super high taxes for nothing in return! My son is a good student, he tries hard, goes to class does own work, studies and makes the high honor roll every quarter. However non of this stops the fact that, that for the past three years he has been bullied non-stoo by the same three kids and nothing has been done! Countless, useless talks with both assistant principals and principals in both PACA and now the High School, still a blind eye. Apparently on their time my child is not a priority to protect. Yet I am expected to keep paying their salaries with my tax dollars and putting my child in their hand everyday.
Not to mention this new level of indoctrination that seems to take place in the classroom. Apparently it is "Okay" for the Spanish teacher to spout politics on a daily basis. She rants about leaving the country, "not her president" and other such nonsence in a Spanish class for 9th graders. My political views are not Republican and I find this appauling! Her job is not is to be a political commentator.
My 3 children all graduated from the High School with High Honor Roll. Don't blame the school blame the parents. Teachers are not babysitters there to teach if don't control you children its not the teachers job. Get involved. Live here 28 years good and bad everywhere and I graduated Sachem High School no better there. Great Job William Floyd. Oh yeah 2700 students compare to the little schools Like Shoreham Wading River. Thanks Again
The William Floyd School district claims to have a zero tolerance policy toward fighting. My son has been terribly bullied at that school for a few years now. He has been beaten up four times. The only discipline that the bullies ever receive is a five day suspension. That is NOT zero tolerance. A genuine zero tolerance policy is....First one to throw a punch is expelled! Save the suspension for the name callers....kick out the ones who start fights and the fights would stop or at least they would not have repeat offenders. They claim to "have a system in place" The system is NOT WORKING. It needs to change.
I am trying to find out if this district offers summer school. My step daughter just moved up from Florida and was failing there. She is already 2 years behind because her mother let her drop out of school while in Florida. I don't want her to be 3 years behind. She told me there is no summer school.
Get rid of that high school principal Barbara Butler. She is the worst thing that has happened to ,what once was a terrific high school. She is rude, crass and curses. She has ,single handed , ruined the entire atmosphere of the high school. She should be fired.
William Floyd is a wonderful school. Last year a graduate was accepted to every Ivy League and a different student was accepted to every military academy. It's the kind of school that gives it's students every opportunity to achieve. The neighborhoods around the school are quiet and it's near the beach! I think the people writing negative things here just don't want anyone to know what a terrific place this is. It's their best kept secret and they want to keep it that way.
I have a daughter, I must say the school and neighborhood has taken a nose dive since i graduated in the 90's. After one visit to the school I pulled my child out and sent her to private Christian school. Being a police officer I was horrified at the amount of gang activity and general drug dealing going on in plain view. Children attending school wearing gang garb and flashing signs. The only reason this school gets 3 stars is because the teachers encourage the students to post on here and give it five stars. Don't take my word for it see for your self.
Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere! William Floyd is a horrendous school district! Had to pull my two children out after 8 years within the district because it just gets worse and worse as they get older and move up through the grades. Now I pay for private/ Catholic school tuition for two kids and still have to pay insanely high school taxes every year for a district that will never measure up! The neighborhoods in the district are getting worse and worse also... Save yourself! Don't even look at this area! Your children deserve better!!!
