This school district is average at best. They push children through because they don't want the expense of a good special education program. If your child needs extra help they offer nothing compared to other so called bad school districts. They spend zero dollars on special education and they have no special education teachers for these children. I have three kids in this district and I wish I didn't move here.

Teacher effectiveness: Neutral

Need more training to teach common core. These teachers did not know how to teach math in 5th and the 6th grades. Most kids failed these common core tests.


Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
Too much homework especially in the middle grades. They do not work on projects at school they send them home to finish everything.

Develops character: Disagree

They care about their reputation and thats about it. They push through their students and don't care what happens to them once they graduate.

This post is in response to the "parent" who stated that there is no chemistry offered in the high school. There must be some very astute teenagers in that high school, 86% of whom are able to pass the regents exam for chemistry in 2013, without having chemistry being taught to them. I want my child to be that proactive and intelligent!

Mount Sinai is a great school as long as your child does not require special education. The children who really need the help do not receive it. Mount Sinai only offers the basics and pushes the children through the system. The school district has a great reputation for high grades but that is because the district includes gym, music and art to their GPAs. In elementary school the children are not taught critical thinking skills, they were not prepared for common core at all and the low scores district wide proved it. The district states they are "working on it" when questioned about common core and how they are going to improve the scores. They now want the children to learn critical thinking skills over night. The majority of graduates go to private schools because their children can not get into SUNY schools because they do not have chemistry in high school. They cannot get into chem. because they do not have critical thinking skills. The teachers are good and want to help but also need to listen to the district leadership to keep their positions.

To all you that actually complain about Mt Sinai, try those other schools like Middle Country or Wyndanch and see what it is like-Mt Sinai is an exception school with exceptional caring teachers!! It is also a very safe school for your child with before and after school programs. So before you bash the school's teachings, investigate how well this school actually is-BLUE RIBBON!

There is great community spirit and support. The teachers love the children and the parents involvement is welcomed. The principal truly is 'gentle to the core' and guides the students with positive guidelines rather than fear. The elementary school participates in homecoming for the district and the participation is wonderful. The school has been featured in Newsday's Futurecorp numerous times for above and beyond community service,
