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.

The teachers are very easygoing and friendly, and the atmosphere is incredible to work in if you're easily focused! There are very few teachers who have issues teaching their source material.
My experience at elmont memorial high schools was very eye opening, and helpful to my outside life. The teachers cared about you, and helped you on their free time in order for you to get the right grades, and thrive as a student. There are many mentoring programs as well the help with adult leadership, and maturity growth in order to become a young adult male, or female. All in all elmont memorial high has helped become the man I am today through not only the faculty, and staff but has also helped me mentally prepare myself for the real world, and college. I have very much enjoyed my 6 year experience at elmont memorial high and I will now begin my journey to become a doctor at St. John’s university for the next four years.
