H.B. Thompson's academic staff are of the highest calibre. My child absolutely loves this middle school, where her love of learning has deepened and has been nurtured by the most qualified professionals--staff and administration alike. A most wonderful place.

I transferred to Syosset and am currently putting my second child through this school. The academics program is pretty good- but not great as many would like to believe. And the extra curricular acivities are available just like other schools. I do believe though that the school is more focused on providing activities that make the school look/rate high in National scores rather than actually focusing on the children. The sports program was very good for my first child, my second child focused more on the arts. The teachers seemed consumed with drama children that take private lessons - lucky for my daughter, rather than actually teaching drama to the eager children that could benefit from theatrical instruction- which according to my daughter was litle to none.
