Bellmore-Merrick Central High School District Reviews
When I was going to St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, I had to transfer in the MIDDLE of 4th grade because of a teacher I had over at that school. Needless to say, Shore Road Elementary opened their arms wide with joy to bring me into their school district and got me on track to a better schooling system. Throughout my school years of then going to Grave Avenue Middle School, then Kennedy High, the education was great. Teachers for the most part are great too, always there to listen when in need. Besides the fact that online bullying wasn't a big concern back in the mid-late 2000's, the school did it's best to help me when I was in trouble with bullies at the time. With great honor, I received a Courage in Profiles award at JFK, and I am forever grateful for it. Overall, I may not have liked the students all that much, but the education is what I am forever most grateful for!
The school is excellent. They fully prepared my daughter for college. She is currently excelling in her studies at her University. The school stresses a strong academic environment but the teachers are friendly and approachable. There are many clubs including some that involve the student in community affairs. This helps them achieve a sense of well-being and purpose. It also helps the community. The only weaknesses are the sports teams and diversity. The sports are not strong but they are inclusive to almost all the students who are interested. The diversity could be better but the this reflects the overall neighborhood. Overall, the school did a wonderful job preparing my daughter academically and socially.
My favorite thing about the Bellmore-Merrick Central High School district is the acceptance. No matter who you are, where you come from, and what your likes/dislikes are, you will always be able to find someone or a group of people whom you can befriend. There are so many opportunities, both academic and extracurricular, for students to take and to excel at. One problem that I find with this district though, is that it is fairly difficult to communicate with teachers, as it always seems that they are busy, whether with their personal life or other students. It's difficult to get an immediate response, but overall, this is such a great environment for anyone willing to put in the effort.
