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!

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 years spent at George W.Hewlett High School were rather bittersweet, honestly I was not so impressed with this institution and the professionalism of their staff.

I believe the weakest things about this school are the administration and quality of teachers/faculty.

Overall students are well prepared for secondary education upon graduating from G.W. Hewlett High School.

But there are definitely gaps in whether all students are treated fairly, and if the staff is professional when dealing with various student related problems.
