Port Jefferson Union Free School District Reviews
The district is a very well funded one. It uses its assets to properly educate its students. It is a very small district so they have a more fine-tuned focus on each individual child. Lately, their handling of the pandemic has been slightly subpar but they are trying their best.
Port Jeff School district has been a blessing for me. All of the teachers are so supportive and very approachable if you have any questions. The classes are structured very well and you find yourself really well prepared academically. Since it is a small school, everyone knows everyone and its very easy to create long lasting relationships that will go well past high school.
Staff complains @ being overworked, unappreciative of $alery, perks & small district. Staff:student ratio ridiculously high, inc. admin. District con't to take from students & gives to staff ie. elem. foreign lang, Artists in Residence, pub. center, clubs(ie. sailing we @ harbor side) , ELA & other courses, educational field trips. They ask for mandatory "donations" for plays/clubs/supplies, & still collect 30% reimbursement from BOCES for "team building" field trips parents pay for. Parents supplement many programs. There are some good/great teachers. But some teachers either through incompetence or telling unrelated personal stories during class time fail to teach the required material, while others don't show for scheduled extra help time, yet the district prefers to push students through the system. Many parents then have no choice but to hire tutors to teach their children, if they can't do it themselves. It is the parents that should earn the Blue RIbbon Award.
