This is a safe place to share your honest opinions of a school, whether good or bad.

Its a good old boys and girls club . Home owners are scared to speak out against this nonsense in fear of declining property values Teachers are not accounted for by the top heavy number of administrators, and do what they want . The guidance department does not advocate for the best interest of the kids . The school is mediocre at best
This school WAS awesome and still does have some great teachers but the administration is destroying the school. Layers and layers of non teaching administrative positions with no accountability and a principal who "does not meet with parents" too bad.
The school was great up until 2013 when we lost Mr. Santana and Mr. Hueber who were then replaced by Dr. Gold and Mr. Coletti. Since the change in principals I've noticed a lack of after school activities keeping us students busy. At least they've kept traditions like annual volleyball/badminton tournaments and rec night, but what ever happened to pasta and pops? As far as I'm concerned, I'm happy to attend the school which (in my opinion) remains the premier middle school on Long Island, and I wouldnt have it any other way.
