Hicksville Union Free School District Reviews
The principal and staff of Hicksville High School are genuinely amazing. Even through the COVID-19 epidemic, they continue to strive to let students still have an amazing year, especially through the Senior Parade and virtual graduation planned. They truly care about their students. Anyone attending this high school is very lucky!
Hicksville does some thing great, but some other things very poorly. First off, the diversity is amazing. As a student there I found myself learning so much from my peers not just in terms of cultural diversity, but also socioeconomic and religious diversity. The music department is great although it could be better. The science research program is awful, not due to teachers, but rather misallocation of resources. The school upgraded the bleachers twice and decided to build a pool instead of investing in proper stem laboratory equipment. Hicksville's lackluster STEM department becomes even more of a glaring issue when compared to the towns surrounding it. The guidance department improved in my time there thanks to new hires, but in terms of preparing and readying students for college applications, the school does a poor job.
My experience at this school was very plain, aside from the occasional drama. I did have a few teachers who weren’t the best or the nicest. My favorite part about this school were the lifelong friends that I have made. People I hope to stay connected with in the future. Another memorable experience were my cross country meets and practices. I made amazing memories. However, I do wish they would change how they deal with bullying and harassment. They don’t do enough. My friend was bullied relentlessly and the school didn’t report it at all.
