I have had a great experience with the Great Neck Public Schools over the 13 years I have been attending schools in the district. For kindergarten, I went to Parkville, for elementary school I went to E.M. Baker, for middle school I went to Great Neck North Middle School, and for high school I have been in Great Neck North High School. Let me just say that everything is amazing in these schools. I loved all of my teachers over the years, as they have really prepared me for my next step in life. I love the clubs and activities offered at the schools, as there are so many of them that the schools offer. Lastly, I love the schools’ environments, as they all have such a positive and supporting environment and help each student get through every day. As a result of these aspects of the district, I would highly recommend any Great Neck Public School for any family that is look for a new place to send their kids to school!

I would like to commend the GNSD on their investment in our children's education, facilities and staff. I am a product of this school district. Graduated, moved on, started a family, and moved back to raise our children. I specifically would like to commend their school safety and security program. My husband and I work in Law Enforcement, so we look to make sure our kids are safe when they enter the school buildings. We noticed one day Mr. Castro out there overseeing the morning arrivals. My husband introduced himself and shared some concerns with him. We started talking and walked away with a sense of calm. Mr. Castro explained to us the districts proactive security measures in place to help protect students and staff. He stressed that everyone must play a role as part of the security team, including our children. If you see something, say something !!!! Thank you GNSD!
Great Neck Public Schools is a very kind district. As a student there, the teachers are very encouraging and so are the administrators. At Great Neck Public Schools, everyone has a place here. We are all treated equally by our teachers and friends. The teachers make sure you are not struggling with your grades and try to help you if you are. If you get a email saying you didn’t do your homework the teachers send it because they want you to grow into a more responsible person and help you to complete your homework. Great Neck Public Schools is such a great school because if you cannot afford to pay for your child’s field trip the school will help you get the money together. Not only do they treat kids with kindness but they also soothe you financial stress.
