Huntington High School Reviews

Overall, Huntington High is a great school to attend and better your education at. I believed all the teachers enjoyed their jobs, and only wanted the best for students. Huntington High offered so much to prepare for college, especially community service, scholarships, and academics. If there is one thing I could change about my school, it would probably be the school lunches. The food is not good to sight or taste and the lunch room is always crowded. However, this little flaw in the school wouldn’t want to make me go or be anywhere else. GO HIGHLANDERS!

The community is diverse in terms of staff and students. Plenty of opportunities to get involved in academics and extracurriculars. It's great to have a staff that's very interactive with students. The music department far surpasses any other school on Long Island!
Overall, the athletics and extracurriculars offered by the school are great; they certainly keep everyone occupied and busy with an activity outside of academics.
However, out academics, teachers, counselors, and administrators unfortunately must be poorly ranked. There are a handful of good teachers, but they mean nothing whenever the counselors and administrators are not encouraging students to take difficult classes or pursue a higher education beyond high school.
