Garden City Union Free School District Reviews

I graduated from the Garden City public school systems a few years ago, and I truly feel my experiences prepared me for a successful and well-rounded life. Each school, from 1st grade through high school, offered more than alternative options my parents had considered. I appreciated the encouragement of music, art, VOLUNTEERING, and sports elementary school enforced, the continuation of that and addition of language options in early middle school, and the vast amount of alternative subject matters that the high school offered (which the private schools could not compete with) paired with the excellent sports and music programs, and community service requirements. I could not be more thankful for my education.

Overall, although the academics are good, the administration doesn't seem to care about students, especially in the middle school. Relatively organized in the way it's run. Students are generally unhappy but successful in their grades.
This school was ok. The food was horrible, as was the diversity. Academics is good, but most people dont get into great college's after going here. The staff is friendly, but do not do much about bullying. Homework is rarely assigned, and is very easy if there is any.
