Sachem North is a very good school, providing students with many opportunities to succeed. I have met some great people in this school and was taught by some of the most amazing teachers. The only complaint I have is that as a senior, personally I felt unprepared when it was time to apply to colleges. I wish this school focused on students future more!

I think overall Sachem Central School district prepares their students for college and genuinely cares about the students enrolled at their schools in order for them to succeed. I feel as though they should emphasize the arts in the school more, rather than focusing all on sports. An equal balance should be achieved. I think that the district should take a different approach with their budget ensuring that there is no cuts to education/clubs that students value. I do commend how Sachem will create groups to welcome people of all race and sexual orientation, as well as have a mentoring club where seniors will help
Guide freshman on their high school journey. Overall sachem is a great district who has the students success at heart.
Sachem helped me with a lot! They offered so many different and vast opportunities that allowed me to excel in everything. They truly care about education and making sure everyone is achieving their goals with all the necessary resources.
