East Meadow High School Reviews

Some teachers really care about you as an individual and for your future, but most guidance counselors don't actually help at all. Most teachers are understanding and prepared to teach every day. They're organized and clearly have everything organized for the students. For the most part, the students are welcoming and friendly, but this year, we've had problems with vaping in the bathrooms. In addition, there are no air conditioners in some classrooms, which makes it extremely difficult to learn in the summer when you're sweating buckets and overheating.

I love East Meadow High School! Most of the teachers are great and I really feel prepared for high school. Some improvements that the school needs are mainly superficial, like better heating/air conditioning, fixing leaky roofs, getting better classroom technology (the class laptops are pretty bad and the iPads are not much better).
I went to east meadow high school for four years. My experience there was overall positive. The atmosphere is welcoming and the people there are very kind and caring. There are also many opportunities there as well, like sports, clubs and honor societies. There is always something to do! And when at times I struggled in a certain subject, there was always someone there to help. There is nothing that I would change about east meadow high school except for maybe moving the prison that is right across from it!
