The school lacks a large academic drive that other schools have. There is a narrow range of classes offered, and academic clubs are limited. Also, there are only eight periods in a day, with an optional ninth period for extra help. The food in the cafeteria is nothing special, but the environment makes it better. School spirit in Comsewogue is huge, and it helps unify all the kids. The faculty are kind and caring, the students stand up for one another, and the school lets students have fun. I'll never regret attending this school because Comsewogue knows how to create a wonderful school atmosphere.

All they do is emphasize how they are accredited, but they do not seem to have much to show for it. The administration focuses on trying to relate to the students rather than listening to them. I once spent 4 hours of my school day fighting to lessen the punishment for those who participated in the national walk out for March for Our Lives, I had other concerns but those were not solved. Their security is laughable considering students sneak in and out during the school day all the time, and their refusal to up their security is because they want to keep a "kumbaya" type of image with the community. They hire teachers that aren't passionate about what they do, and overlook the ones that are by making them teach subjects they don't specialize in or underpay them. The students have been clearly spoiled by parents, teachers, and administration all their lives. Many students in the AP program clearly don't deserve to be there. Otherwise it's pretty okay.
Overall the school is great, I had so many great teachers, the staff was always very friendly and the principle is great! The school really likes to create a warm and welcoming community and the encourage school pride. The school has great athletic programs and a variety of clubs that serve the community. My only problem with the school was the guidance counselors. Mine was never available when I needed her and for all of high school when I needed my schedule fixed I would have to go to the assistant principle. I also think they should offer more support to seniors when it comes to the college decision process, there is one woman there who is extremely nice and helpful but unfortunately she is only one person. I think guidance counselors should work more closely with students, especially during college decision time. Besides that the school is really nice.
