Roslyn High School Reviews

I attended Roslyn High School for 4 years, consecutively, and after attending Roslyn Middle School for 3 years. It fares very well for a public school, allowing students free speech in the wake of mass shootings that have affected people here at a personal level, but also moderating that speech. The people here are sometimes judgemental, sometimes eccentric, but they’re often just people, with struggles that they run from or hide from. I’m grateful for attending school here, I’m grateful for the opportunities it has provided me in the form of the humanities, but ultimately, I’m ready to leave. In some ways, the administration is manipulated by the parents in a way we consider uniquely Roslyn-esque, but likely exists in other pockets across the United States. The teachers are some of the best, and I appreciate all of them very much. Overall, a problematic, but above-average school.

As a considerably motivated student , I have found the academic resources and faculty support at Roslyn High School to be very strong. The rigor of the classes is significant and I have been very well prepared for standardized testing. Additionally, the extracurricular activities I have been involved in, primarily the DECA Business Club and Public Forum Debate Club, have offered me invaluable mentorship opportunities that have been some of the cornerstones of my high school experience. However, at times the administration of the school has not been very supportive of my endeavors, and in some cases tried to undermine the leadership of myself, and others in extracurriculars, as well as undermine some of my academic pursuits. The student body as a whole, however, is very supportive of one another, and my four years at Roslyn have been filled with growth and development socially, and academically.
Great staff members in the school. Kids are very friendly! Personally, i believe that almost all of the classes are engaging and fun. In addition, there are many clubs and sports after school for different seasons. Sports like football, basketball, soccer, and others and very popular.
