Sewanhaka Central High School District was great! Everyone is friendly, it's very diverse, and the teachers do what they can to ensure that your child does well. Something I would like to see change is non-collaborative classrooms. I would like to see Special Education students and non-special education students interact and collaborate with each other in integrated classrooms.

Sewanhaka High School was the perfect blend of diversity, academics and student support. There were ample resources available to help students with classes such as after school tutors as well as advisement for college and mock interviews to help students with their future goals.This school provided me with a safe, inclusive environment to do my best. They offer Advanced placement courses that challenge students and prepare them for college courses. These AP courses allowed me to transfer credits worth about a semester of college saving me money and allowing me to graduate on time. Overall I had amazing teachers who inspired and educated me about the real-world and respected me as a future participating citizen. This school was amazing and I'm so proud of the person they helped mold.
There are many things to love about the Sewanhaka Central High School District that I've personally learned a lot from in my 4 years of being there. For instance, in the athletics department there are some teams that are district teams rather than school teams. I used to go to Sewanhaka High School but the district riflery team was at New Hyde Park High School so there i made quite a lot of friends that i would not have met otherwise. Academics-wise I loved the motivation that the teachers took on their work. Specifically Ms. Sherwood, my earth science teacher in the 9th grade and Mr. Sexton, my physics teacher senior year! However, there are some downsides to SCHSD. For instance, I feel that there is a lack of interaction between all the schools in the district. This is because in the different schools there is a great difference in their demographics. Therefore, I think that getting everyone involved and open to eachother overall would give the alumni a more diverse experience.
