I really like that Farmingdale HS has so many different classes to get every one interested in Something! I also like that they really challenge the students. The more you want to learn a subject, they have really high level courses. Also, their music program is incredible! They have such hard working teachers and kids that you’d swear you were listening to an All college level orchestra / band.

Proud Farmingdale mom of a HS senior and a fourth grader! Can’t think of ever living anywhere else. Administration listens carefully to parent concerns, especially for special needs children. The special education services are beyond my expectations.
Personally, I love the violin so farmingdale was a great school for me. The music education department is absolutely fantastic. All of the music staff is outstanding and I look up to most of them. I also love the humanities teachers at the school. All of them care so deeply about the students and they make you feel comfortable and at home. I have never felt anything but safe in that school which I know is a blessing. many girls would die to be able to have an education and I am luck enough to have one. I found my passion in farmingdale school district and I have nothing but gradatude. Of course there was some bad apples but they will be everywhere in life. In addition the school has impeccable school spirit and everyone feels welcomed. I know farmingdale is not the best school district in the world but the experiences it has provided for me are incomprehensible. Thank you farmingdale for guiding me and showing me to my passion, music.
