Plainview-Old Bethpage schools has great teachers and guidance couselors. I have found that I can always reach out for help in any subject and the teachers are more than willing to ensure understanding in the specific subject. The teachers are caring and helpful. My school advisor is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. When I make an appointment to see him, he shows interest and care with whatever I need advice or help with. He will spend the entire period if necessary to answer my questions. It is important to note that the High School staff have been most influential of all the schools in the district. Here is where I have received the most support. It has been my experience that the teachers truly want to see their students succeed and receive the best education possible.

My experience at POBJFKHS was amazing academically.I believe the teachers and staff were biased and inconsistent for their students. Although, this district is phenomenal, there is an abundance of bullying happening in the hallways, the cliques and friend groups intimidate and threaten other students. The academic and profession experience was amazing and really prepared me for college experiences although the emotional and social aspects were not so great.
I was truly lucky to have attended this school. I'm fully confident that few places have better teachers than POB, especially JFK high school. Every class I've taken has had some unique and enjoyable quality that another class didn't possess, but still was distinctly a pleasurable experience. My favorite class over the years has been AP World History which I took in 10th grade. No class built my confidence more as a writer and a thinker than Global. Having the best teacher in the world didn't hurt either. Furthermore, becoming the manager of my high school radio station and climbing the ranks for three years, was an immeasurably satisfying experience. Overall, the combination of learning, profound enjoyment, and relationship building has made my experience in the POB School District one to cherish and never forget.
