I used to attend this school, I am now being homeschooled. I started off very well at this school, always grades of 90 and above! I have recently (1 year) been professionally diagnosed with clinical depression, GAD, social anxiety, OCD, BPD, and panic disorder. This caused my grades to suffer tremendously. Eventually, teachers began to pester me about my grades and I would say I was under a lot of stress and they would give me an extra day and I really would try my damn best to get things done I was damn proud of my grades! Unfortunately, I couldn't; I stopped doing my work and started skipping. The days when I actually went to school I had notes from either my psychologist or psychiatrist explaining that I was (and still am, honestly) going through a rough time. My #1 problem with the school is this: nobody cared about my wellbeing. I would tell teachers my actually problems, come in with notes from the doctors and they would just get pissy for me not having my work. My guidance counselor was no help either; she often criticized me and even said she felt sorry that my parents had a child like me. This school screwed me up. I wish I could write more, but character limit. Horrible.
New Dorp high school is a wonderful high school, my child is getting a wonderful education, has a group of great friends, and is happy, the principle is a caring wonderful lady, who cares for all students. teachers and staff are great, would recommend this high school
I would reccomend this school for everybody there academics got better I don't care what anybody says I recommend it for you others probably don't know what there saying but. I know this school very well has many clubs as much as the principal very nice and the student will listen
I would not recommend this school to anyone. It's so difficult to get in contact with the school. If you are lucky enough to get in contact than they still don't help to inform you on anything that you may have asked about. They are also a very over populated school which causes a lot of choas and destruction within the hallways. Since the school is overpopulated they have many teachers and staff members teaching subjects that they are unfamiliar with.
