Farmingdale Senior High School Reviews

This is a great district as you get great teachers who always have time to help you. We have great sports but we know academics are first and we take pride in that. There are so many activities you can do after school whether it is being in the show, playing sports or being in a club there is always things to do after school. The teachers are great you can always go to them for help and whether it is about that class or other issues they will gladly help to make you feel comfortable. Now this year they did add a lot of security measures and some might say it is to much but it is good to know you are safe when you are in school as well as the parents knowing their kid is good. All in all I am happy that I went to Farmingdale it was a great experience and I will always remember the memories.

Overall, my four years at Farmingdale High School have been good. Most teachers are very good at what they do, substitute teachers are often times rude to students, and plenty of faculty members are disrespectful towards students. However, events held by the school are great. Spirit week is a lot of fun for everyone who participates and ends with our mini fair in the commons, which is a major highlight of the year, and our homecoming football game. The Junior year Prom is usually done very well. There are also a lot of Senior only events which are a great way to end your time at the school. As for school lunches, I think the price is very high for some not so good food and the school in general definitely needs some repairs. Other than that, the district now gives every student a free chromebook which is very helpful for students who didn’t have access to a computer at home. For the most part, the school is average/good, and most people have good experiences.
Farmingdale high school was like a second home to me. It was a place where I made everlasting memories and friends. Seeing the school change throughout my years of attending it is heartwarming. I started out in my freshman year as a small fish in a large sea, I was in a strange new place that accepted and incorporated me into its family. Throughout the years, I made bonds that I never thought possible thanks to the schools classes.
