I have gone to Hewlett High school for 3 years and it was the best experience of my life! I was exposed to amazing people who taught me new things everyday! All my teachers were the best and ensured that all the students understood the topics being covered. I was also able to graduate 1 year early from Hewlett High school with the help of my guidance counselor because I had enough high school credits! It is an amazing school and if I was still in high school, I would be loving it!

George W. Hewlett High School (commonly known as Hewlett High School, and replacing Woodmere High School) is a four-year public high school in Hewlett, New York, which is a part of the Five Towns area of the South Shore of Long Island. The school is the only high school in the Hewlett-Woodmere School District (District 14).

As of the 2014-15 school year, the school had an enrollment of 1,043 students and 90.3 classroom teachers (on an FTE basis), for a student–teacher ratio of 11.6:1. There were 127 students (12.2% of enrollment) eligible for free lunch and 59 (5.7% of students) eligible for reduced-cost lunch.[1]
I felt Hewlett High School was a well rounded experience. The great thing I love, is the ability to have multitudes of opportunity. My guidance counselor was an amazing help all four years of high school and is always there for support. While many other schools don't have this, these guidance counselors really do guide you to graduating in four years and taking classes that are on your level. I had so many opportunities to take AP and college courses in order to push my academics to the limit. The teachers accommodate to you an abundant amount. However, some other teachers don't baby you as much and that really got me ready for college because I got used to keeping my own calendar and following a syllabus. It was a pretty amazing experience and I made some lifelong memories and friends that will not be forgotten!
