Hicksville Union Free School District Reviews
I liked that at Hicksville we had a lot of diversity! It was a great experience getting to know all different kinds of people. I also enjoyed that for the most part everyone was pretty kind to each other. Something I think Hicksville can improve on is incorporating more activities for students to make school more enjoyable!
Overall, the staff is extremely dedicated to their students and provide a plethora of opportunities for extracurricular involvement and extra help. In addition, opportunities, such as peer tutoring and library access, are readily available. However, not enough money is allocated to successful clubs, such as the Science Olympiad, and the money is instead given to sports or used to build extravagant swimming centers that serve no foreseeable purpose in the future. Ideally, invest in the students and their opportunities over flagrantly ostentatious displays of wealth.
Teachers were subpar. School does not offer many educational after school programs such as SAT prep, College workshop, Resume and Cover letter writing workshops. In addition, the school should focus on incorporating daily life skills and activities that are essential once you graduate and go into the professional world.
