I love going to school here! The staff constantly tries to improve themselves everyday! Teachers always try their best to ensure every student gets the help they need. Unfortunately they are lacking in language, I loved taking German one, but I can't continue with the program because it was cancelled. They also offer every sport their division allows and encourages students to get involved.

I am currently in my second year at Suffolk County Community College but I graduated from Commack High School in 2016. I truly enjoyed my years at this high school. Attending this high school is something I will never forget. It was overall such a great experience to attend. The staff and administration was beyond exceptional. The teachers always made the classes as exciting as could be possible, making each class interesting. The administrators never hesitated to help or listen when in need of assistance. They were also extremely welcoming and personable. They were people who truly made an effort to remember your name and face, despite the big amount of students who attended. Overall, the experience I had at Commack High School is truly an experience I'll never forget.
I had a generally positive experience throughout my years at Commack High. Many of the courses I have taken were rewarding, challenging, and generally well-taught. The staff is very helpful and happy to address any needs that I may have. Commack also has an excellent music program and student-musicians are provided with plenty of opportunities, such as ensembles and plays. There is a strong emphasis on the IB Diploma program and at times, it seems as if many of the students who want to take more academically rigorous courses are given no other alternative.
