Bellmore-Merrick Central High School District Reviews

Starting from my kindergarten days at Old Mill Road Elementary through my High School years at Stanford H. Calhoun, I have learned so much. I have enjoyed the small class sizes which gave me hands on and personnel experience with my teachers. I have blossomed in my years through the encouragement my teachers have given to me. I have met great friends and will keep my friendship with them through my lifetime. I like the fact that teachers and principal all attend the sport games to help cheer on our athletes showing school spirit.
I feel my school district has prepared me well enough for me to peruse my dreams of going to college and becoming an engineering.

The BMCHSD offers everything a student could want to succeed. I have called it my home for the past 4 years and the staff and administration have shaped my being and mindset towards education. I have expressed and discovered myself in many realms, ranging from academically, artistically, and athletically, and much more. Between starting clubs with likeminded peers and exploring differences between those who are less likeminded to myself, all facilitated by the district, I have become a better person. The BMCHSD is a community of sharing and expression as well as intellectual curiosity and ambition towards greatness and that is something that will stay with me and all other BMCHSD students for the rest of my life.
Out of many of the high schools within the district, JFK is strong regarding academics and my guidance counselor is excellent and knowledgable. The building is secure and I feel safe, and of course this is always improving. Most teachers are supportive as a result of extra help, recommendation letters etc.
There are various clubs that the students can become involved in to better serve the community. I was able to become an officer in my club which was nice as I was recognized for my dedication and work within the club. You can find a club that you are passionate about like I did. We/the school also helps the community in a variety of ways which I find to be very rewarding. Overall, I had a nice experience at JFK.
