Farmingdale was a great school because there were so many opportunities to take advanced classes and gain college credits before graduating. The teachers were kind and compassionate, and a huge help in the college process. Additionally, the school was very lenient toward senior students and gave them some extra freedom that other schools sometimes don't offer.

What I love about Farmingdale High School is the academic atmosphere inside and outside the classroom; teachers are always willing to assist students to strive in the classroom and in extracurricular clubs such as VEX Robotics, Mathletes, Science Olympiad, Key Club and so much more. There is an immense sense of Daler pride that is visible in the apparels of individuals and in the individuals themselves. An improvement that I desire to make Farmingdale High School more of a home for future students is increased funding for extracurricular programs since the school day doesn't end for those who strive for more outside the normal school day.
My high school is a unique place of academic excellence. The faculty and teachers push each and every student to thrive and excel in all subject matters as well as extracurricular activities. The supportive community have often banded together in times of distress in ways that no other town has done. After the tragic passing of five students in Farmingdale, the high school composed a beautiful memorial and offered help in the grieving process to all those who felt it necessary. The Daler community is one of the strongest and most supportive I have ever found.
