Roslyn High School Reviews

Roslyn High School is a school with strong academics and an encouraging staff. I liked the self-selection option with choosing our courses and the various clubs and activities offered. This gave the students the opportunity to dabble in classes they were passionate about. Furthermore, the many courses offered at Roslyn High School reflect the abundant resources that can be utilized by its students. The teachers and the administration in general communicated frequently and well with their students and were very approachable. While I enjoyed my overall experience here, one place this school is lacking in is in the diversity of its students. There is an overwhelming amount of Caucasians, and a much smaller percentage of other ethnicities. Overall, however, this school is certainly a good one.

Many challenging courses offered, but not Latin. Seniors get priority with Guidance Counselors. Many resources are available to the students to help them succeed, like after school help with the teachers. Smart boards in many if not all classrooms. Broad range of classes, including coding and American Sign Language. There is a requirement that students do volunteer work before they graduate.
The academics at Roslyn High School are very good, the teachers are very qualified and my courses were very rigorous, however, many teachers were very susceptible to parents coercion for better grades or better positions in clubs. Also, the diversity at the school is very small and students are not encouraged to befriend students of different backgrounds. Many students were very privileged and they were not taught any better about the real world.
