I loved my time at Manhasset High School! I now attend a highly competitive college, and I felt adequately prepared graduating from Manhasset. The teachers were extremely helpful, welcoming of questions, approachable, and wanted to work with you to make sure that you preformed well. Some of my favorite teachers to this day as a college senior are from Manhasset High School.

As a native US citizen whose parents are immigrants that came from overseas, I would love to see some more diversity in the student and teacher population. This may naturally take place over time, however, in the meantime there could be substantial progress in the departments of the celebration of diverse backgrounds as well as the general school spirit. Students' attitudes, as they are at most schools, are extremely negative towards school. The fact that this is an issue in schools across the board is no excuse for its prescence, and the administration must take appropriate actions. It may be considered naive of me, but I truly believe that school can be an enjoyable experience for all under the right circumstances. Learning new knowledge can be highly rewarding when students' mentalities are properly catered to. On a lighter note, the food is comparably better in quality and nutrition than most schools.
Most teachers are very educated and were top of their own class in college. Everyone uses technology in their lesson plans: smart board, google classroom, etc. Manhasset is a blue ribbon school district in New York State so teachers take pride in being a faculty member and claim they fought hard to get the job at the school. However, teachers commonly fall into what parents call the "tenure cushion"... After receiving tenure, teachers lose motivation to help struggling students and to go above and beyond. They no longer care about whether a student receives an A or a C on exams and finals. Teachers verbalize to their classes that they are protected under tenure and will be unaffected with our general satisfaction of the class. Teachers almost completely lose interest in classes with seniors. They basically beg the students to care about the course and to be attentive in class, yet most teachers don't even have set lesson plans for students. Also, I have found that some teachers make personal opinions about students based on stereotypes! Teachers will decide if they like or dislike a student based on what they look like and what they "seem" like.
