Port Washington Union Free School District Reviews

The Port Washington Union Free School District has provided me with an all-accepting educational community for the past 12 years, and I have been fortunate enough to have such a strong support system working alongside me in my studies. Although more recently the athletic rankings may have been on a decline, the spirit/ camaraderie seen between the huge crowd of students/ staff who come out to supPORT has definitely not. Students are encouraged to take an active role in the school community, making new clubs and social media accounts for clubs/ teams, and entertainment events afterschool at Paul D. Schreiber High School. These include a musical and play, orchestrated by the exceptional theatre/ arts program, and an event entirely unique to Schreiber... Schreiber Slam. It is held to raise money for childhood cancer research after a student passed away due to brain cancer, and it features Schreiber teachers competing in stagged UFC style fighting matches.

Wonderful faculty that actually tries to help students achieve better grades. The classes, or at least some of them, are fun and informative and are enriching. I just wish that there was more school spirit, as most of the students just want the day to end. High school is the last chance to have fun, but many people are just wishing for it to pass by. You have to take advantage of high school and have fun before you go off into the real world!
Growing up in Port Washington and attending an elementary school, middle school, and high school in this town has shown me the real meaning of community. Members of Port Washington are always coming together to find solutions to help better improve our schools. No matter how high or low one may be on the board of education or if they're not on the board at all, everyone's opinion is shared and heard. The Port Washington Union Free School District has helped my education journey be a smooth one. I have never had any problems at any of the schools nor have my siblings. The schools in Port Washington should continued to be noticed for all the outstanding activities and programs they offer.
