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.

I have been attending Center Moriches High School since I was a freshman 3 years ago. As a senior now, I feel more ready then ever to go on to bigger and better things. My high school has provided me with many opportunities and chances to work hard and put my best foot forward. I personally participate in many different out of school activities offered at the school such as Robotics, lacrosse and some of our many honor societies. I also challenge myself by taking many difficult classes and filling my schedule to the brim. There are many options at my school that have allowed me to decide my future. I will have taken a plethora of advanced courses throughout my high school career which have prepared me for college and my future major in biology. I have high hopes of attending medical school and becoming a doctor in the future, and I know because of my high school experience thus far, that this goal is not far out of sight.
All three of my children have attended CMHS. Both of my graduates have gone on to prestigious 4 year universities and finished in four years. My youngest is a junior now and doing very well academically, socially and athletically. All my children came from a feeder district (East Moriches) and had a choice to attend CM, Westhampton Beach or Eastport - South Manor HS. Without question, each of them has made a great choice.
