I enjoy the fact that Massapequa High School has so many opportunities when it comes to field trips. I also like that Massapequa treats their music and art programs equal to their sport teams. There truly is a place for everybody at Massapequa. The relationships that students have and share with the teachers and faculty members is indescribable. The school does a great job making kids feel comfortable and safe. The privilege of having open campus is extremely nice. Massapequa is truly a great school to attend. The staff is always there to help their students and help prepare us to have successful futures. In the future I would love to see more involvement between students and more activities that connect the students on a personal level rather than a school student level.
Being a senior, I have loved my experience so far. I met my best friends and have created the best memories. Everyone in this school is very kind to one another and everyone really bonds when it come to sports or any other school organizations. This school has great resources, a new library, helpful and caring teachers, and the freedom to go out for lunch and be seen as a young adult.
