Massapequa High School is an average school, with plenty of qualified teachers and administration, along with ones that shouldn't be working here. Sports teams excel at Massapequa High School, which is a positive and a negative. All of the attention and resources on sports could outshine other clubs and activities that need assistance. Overall, this school provides decent education due to the amount of teachers that aren't qualified, but if you are lucky enough to have the ones that are professional and experienced, your education could reign supreme.

The education I recieved at MHS was exceptional. I was able to take 4 different classes through universities, and purchase college credits at an unbelievable price! These classes helped me prep for college, and I graduated with over 25 college credits already! The school's well known mock trial program is exceptional, and very sucessful. I have had the opportunity to attend two weekend-long law seminars at Harvard University with the MHS Mock Trial team.
Massapequa High School is mainly characterized by its heavy focus on sports. The problem is that the school focuses so much on sports and spends its budget on unnecessary new sports equipment instead of funding the academic programs and clubs as well as the art programs.
The school has a variety of clubs but the science olympiad and mathletes club never seem to get anywhere.
I really like the school because it is close to a lot of restaurants which gives students the opportunity to eat outside.
The school also offers a variety of AP courses and electives. Most of the teachers hold extra help and go out of their way to make sure that the students understand the material.
Another thing I dislike about Massapequa High School was the lack of diversity. However, I can not blame the school. The town itself is like 98 percent white and 2 percent minorities.
