I entered Elmont Memorial High School during the 2015-2016 school year, and it truly provides an efficient transition from middle school to high school due to its integration from 7th through 12th graders. The teachers truly seek to be at the forefront of their students’ educational prowess, and they will put in that extra effort to help them succeed. The administration help create a safe environment to foster growth for all students, and you can certainly tell from your interactions with them. There are also many extracurriculars provided to help students become well rounded individuals, ranging from sports to Model United Nations. However, if you wish to take selective classes for certain college credits, there are not many APs provided and the emphasis on taking them is rather minuscule, though it is increasing.

Walking through the doors and hallways of Elmont Memorial has allowed me to see and experience many things that have impacted me to be better. In my six years I’ve acquired great knowledge, friends, I’ve seen the sacrifice that teachers make in order to aid their students become better people and the connection between student and teacher is unshakable. The support that many peers offer to one another, the bonds that everyone hold towards one another, the different clubs and varieties of sports and extracurricular activities that Elmont Memorial has is what truly makes Elmont Memorial great.
I love Elmont Memorial High school. I saw improvements right before my eyes. As I developed and bettered myself, so did the school. When I felt as though I was alone developing into a young woman, a flyer for a women’s club called Leading Ladies popped up. Every week we shared our embarrassing stories that seemed to haunt us , cried from laughter at our stupid mistakes that we thought was the end of our life. I found a voice and sisters through Elmont’s Leading Ladies Club. This one experience from an after school club that developed two years flourished my long time growth as a woman.
