Overall Commack High School has given me countless amazing academic opportunities such as being part of honor societies or taking IB/college level classes. Along with outstanding academics, there are also tons of clubs and sports to join so that everyone can fit in somewhere! staff is super helpful and involved with students and parents. My only critique is that there are often problems with the bathrooms, such as flooding. But, it is always taken care of within 24 hours.

Generaly speaking, as a member of the most recent graduates my experience at Commack High School was better then average. Furthermore, I say this because I have encountered amazing experiences with some teachers. Yet, I have also lacked some experiences with other teachers. In terms of administration, there decisions are predominantly indecisive and last minute. Specifically, the administration is indecisive in school closings and delays. However, it's clear that the administration has got better throughout the years. As for academics, Commack High School excels at them. My class (2018) is attending many paramount colleges such as John Hopkins, Cornell University, and Harvard University. Being that Commack offers many IB and AP classes these students can excel at there selected colleges. Although, the classes may be challenging they are worth it in the long run, and even can help finacially. Thus being, that Commack offers college credit for these classes at a beyond reduced rate.
Commack High School is an excellent school. It has a variety of classes to choose from, has something for everyone! The teachers are approachable, dedicated and caring. You can't ask for more helpful Deans and Guidance Counselors. There are a plethora of after school activities to choose from. It is a Gold Medal School, with APP and Baccalaureate classes. Inclusion classes as well. It is their goal to give every student the education they deserve.
