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!

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.
