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.

Commack High School provides a welcoming environment to its students through its well trained staff. Its numerous clubs and course options allow students to have a positive and interactive experience. Regardless of what school you go to, students will encounter at least one teacher they have trouble with whether its because of their teaching style or personality. I feel that my school should have better protocol when it comes to removing a student from an ill environment in the classroom. For example, a friend of mine last year was unable to learn the material because she didn't understand the teachers teaching style and failed the midterm as a result.Unable to change teachers her transcript would now show that she dropped out of a class. I understand there is a problem with students changing teachers to be with friends, but there should be some sort of investigation of grades and the students relationship with teachers before a final answer is provided.
I only gave it a four star because, first off. They just took away some electives that are art related and some people like me need these electives such as fashion design to further experience what it’s like and an alibi for college. The school also just allows some of the rich kids to get away with detention just because they’re scared of getting sued. Other than that, commack is a great school. Most of my teachers were great and commack offers varieties of electives and clubs that some schools don’t have and they really prepare you for college.
