Manhasset Secondary School Reviews

The Manhasset school district will grant you a solid high school experience. The teachers are great and it's safe. Some of the sports teams are top in the state too. Manhasset is a very prestigious district with lots of academics being much harder than other schools. The school prioritizes on the students who do the best. More students in a graduating class will end up going to an Ivy rather than the local community college. That is because the district almost expects you to go to an Ivy league college. There will be no awareness in your entire experience of getting into a trade for a career, it almost creates a stigma that going into a trade career is looked down upon. Even the students who are very "average" for the district, usually aren't shown much support by the district, and it makes it harder for those students with the academics being so hard. This ends up leaving them very confused in the college process and onward in their lives.

A very safe environment. Everyone works hard, so at times the atmosphere could be quite competitive. However, we know how to respect each other and therefore there is a lot of mutual understanding for one another. This does not apply if you are not in a certain friend group, which is when people can be more exclusive. Overall a great school that sends many students to Ivy Leagues and other exceptional institutions. Many young and enthusiastic teachers around, but some cranky old ladies who refuse to retire are still working.
Overall, it's a great school district. Little can be done to improve the already stellar academics. I would, however, love to see more diverse extracurricular opportunities for the students. Though sports are undeniably important to any good student and school, many students would prefer to pursue clubs and extracurriculars other than these sports.
