I attended Great Neck South High for my Junior and Senior year, it was great! I love the atmosphere here, and I had a lot of fun! Of course high school is stressful, but I got a lot of help when I could not do well in my classes. There's a study center tutors are available to all students, and teachers of most subjects offer extra help. A lot of clubs and activities are going on every single day! I had a really nice experience with school musicals and operas, and my talented classmates and teachers did a musical Mama Mia! within 3 months! There are performances by students almost every month as well. GNSHS also offers A LOT OF AP courses like art history and music theory while other schools don't. 10-ish teachers are doctors of different fields and they guide students to science competitions and DECA. Teachers, counselors, and administration officers are so nice and friendly! My math teacher and I became lifelong friends, which I am so happy about. The school is overall great!

Great Neck South has a lot of opportunities given to students, just like any other high school. But, what makes them different is the environment. Our teachers are all very nice, open to students wants and needs, etc. One thing I hear my friends complain about is a lot of their teachers. Some don't teach well, while others have homework everyday and tests every week. It is stressful. Especially when us(students) have SAT tutoring, sports, and outside sports. We don't need that extra stress of being afraid to ask a teacher a question.
If you want a great education it's here. Good/great teachers and friends. I took advantage of the photography clubs and the band. Those are 2 of my favorite activities.
I also learned about a great teen program outside of school. Its called BBYO.
They are teen leadership, volunteer, organize and have lots of fun with great friends organization.
I am very involved with this organization.

Thank you
