Uniondale Union Free School District Reviews
Uniondale High School has given me the best high school experience. I met a lot of different people and I was invoked in the art community. National Art Honor Society as well as Art Club. These two clubs made me feel like I had a place to learn and grow. Uniondale High School had many different variety of clubs, the teachers really are amazing, and there’s a diversity in the school. This school helped me become who I am today, I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Although there is quite a bit of amazing faculty, there are plenty of unpleasant staff as well. It's a large school, yet still overcrowded. The library is wonderful, and in my opinion, not utilized enough. Most days, there is at least one not working projector, computer, or the entire system is just botched in at least one of my classes. The security guards treat the kids a bit roughly, and there are underlying bullies. Most teachers are good except for a few, who will give bad grades just for spite and because they don't like you. Most teachers are very good, although most of the substitutes are okay. There should be a larger variety of language classes. 3 and a half stars.
Most people here have lineage from Latin America and the Caribbean. The academics at the school need improvement. Test scores are similar to the state average, but still below many schools in New York . And albeit a majority of attendees do graduate, it doesn't mean much if students graduate sans test scores necessary to compete with students from other districts. You definitely have to work hard - through attending after school sessions + Saturday review sessions - to grasp the concepts taught during regular class time. Student disruption interferes with learning as well. Despite the assertion they've a "zero tolerance policy" for bullying & fighting, the rate at which it transpires is baffling, and has only gotten worse to the point where it is mundane. Staff & faculty can do a better job at handling disruptive students. Overall, this school is not the worst of public high schools, but an abundance of issues need to be dealt with in order for the administration to see improvement.
