New Hyde Park is a great school, filled with ethically diverse students and caring staff. Though at times it seems that the school spends its money on Inness IPads as opposed to air conditioning, it is hard to complain about the quality of teaching students receive. Being in the Advanced and AP Program, New Hyde Park allows me to surround myself with other smart and competitive individuals. It really is a great community for any student, boy or girl, Black or White, smart or not. This school has given me the tools and help I need to become successful in college and beyond, I really couldn’t be any happier!

There are many unique courses offered at NHP Memorial that other colleges don't offer, such as Anatomy and Physiology. Many staff members are kind to the students and are genuinely interested in how well the students are performing academically. They persist in offering extra help to make sure the students are prepared for their exams and the future. The guidance counselors offer many resources to students for college readiness. However, there is a small group of teachers that seem to not care about helping students or maintaining a professional relationship with their classes. But overall, my experience at this school has been very memorable and I have taken many life lessons from the staff, faculty, and students at this school.
New Hyde Park Memorial High School is a good school, but not great. The school has many wonderful teachers and facilities as many other schools do. The main issue with the school is that they don't make use of the school budget. The government has given us Ipads, but our school just really needs repairs. New York winters are really brittle and the heat is never turned on in many of the classrooms, and the bathrooms are leaking. The teachers are getting new Ipads almost every year and the Ipads the students get have no use. More than half the teachers don't use the devices and we, the students, are forced to lug the devices plus all the binders. The school lunches are horrific. The chicken is grey, the pizza is purely disgusting and sometimes just burned, and most of the food is just "fake." The sandwich line is one of the better ones there. Sometimes they have a bad attitude if you ask them to cut the sandwich. In the end, we're there to study.
