Center Moriches high school is a fantastic school. The teachers are all willing to help students when needed for homework and tests. There are clubs, honor societies and sports that are all great with a lot of students and teachers involved. The guidance counselors, school psychologist, school social worker, and head of disability services all helped me so much. The special education program is fantastic and is the reason I discovered my dream to become a special education teacher.

I loved the teachers, I got help when I asked and mostly all the teachers I had always stayed with me to put in the extra work and do good when I was struggling. I joined smiles (a club) and it was the best thing I’ve ever did. Our sports teams were awesome as well. I loved cross country. Although I wish there was more funding and appreciation through the school for our outstanding team. I think the cafeteria needs work. 4.15$ for a sandwich seems ridiculous for a school lunch. Maybe I’m just cheap. The food quality and vending machines really need work.
What I really loved about Center Moriches High School was the small community feel. The classes are really small; my graduating class is 155 students and that is the largest yet. Everyone knows everyone, which has both its pros and cons, but mostly it is really good. You get to make real relationships with classmates over four years. They also accommodated me really well when it came to AP classes that they may or may not have offered at the time; I can say that I was well prepared for college with the courses they offered.
