George W. Hewlett High School Reviews
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!
My time at Hewlett was very interesting because I transferred half way through my high school career. But what I can say about my short time there was that it provided so many opportunities for me. I really learned what I wanted to do with my life due to the access of college classes. The teachers were amazing and really were a positive aid for me. Many of the teachers at the time I consider early mentors. The only downside was the lack of diversity that existed. But the teachers defiantly tried to make those who were 'outsiders,' feel more included in the school. If you are a parent wanting to open up opportunities for your child's future, I would definitely consider going there.
The chances of growing academically are huge with the plethora of AP and advanced courses. However, there is a clear demonstration of a lack of diversity in upper-level courses (which may be in part due to the demographics of the school). There is also not a huge amount of school spirit since there are no dances or people too ectastic about school events.
