Plainview-Old Bethpage Central School District Reviews
Plainview-Old Bethpage John F Kennedy High School is a fantastic highschool to send your kids too in every way! The kids here are friendly, most of the time, very very smart, and talented! The academics at POB are one of the very best in the state! I prefer POB over other highly rated districts like Jericho and Syosset because although POB is very academically competitive you still feel at ease attending the highschool! The staff and guidance counseler are super sweet! The food is good for high school food especially the wraps! Additionally, it is very obvious that safety is important to the district! I have never ever felt in danger when I am in school and that is one of my favorite things! POB is amazing!
I enjoyed my High School experience because I was comfortable there. My teachers were great and easy to communicate with. My school was uniques and promoted diversity.My fellow students were incredible and many will be life long friends.POBJFK offered many opportunities and I took advantage of them so I could be ready for what is next. POBJFK was and is unique, it shaped me into who I have become. POBJFK provided me with a great high school experience!
The district has excellent STEM and Arts programs. However, they neglect to teach their students anything practical. Every kid should learn about home finances. Also, most kids with disabilities beyond mild learning issues are sent out of district. POB would rather pay for tuition and busing to other districts than invest in special educators who can handle moderately challenging cases. This goes against the recommendation of inclusion in one's own community. The lack of diversity causes many of the mostly white affluent able bodied students to lose out on social skills needed to get along with the rest of the world. Plainview has a reputation among neighboring communities as being snobbish.
