My experience with Sachem High School North has been very good. I think the teachers and staff are excellent and they provide a lot of opportunity academically to be successful. I think the guidance counselors could be a little more helpful with the college application process and is a little behind the times with the transcript request process. Completing a paper form and then submitting it to the assistant in the guidance office is not efficient, especially with the technology of today. Overall, our experience has been great!

Sachem North HS is the second largest HS in NY state. There are over 2000 students in the graduating class! There are several AP classes, honors and a variety of BOCES programs for students that want to enter a vocational tract. Great place, great teachers, lots of opportunities! Take advantage!
Sachem North is a very average school that provides widely varied experiences for it’s students. The teachers in this school tend to be either horrible, both as teachers and as people, or amazing, enriching educators/role models. There are many extracurriculars for students to be involved in and express creativity, as well as many honor societies that encourage students to do well. The amazing teachers in the school tend to lie among the music, science, and english departments and have taught myself and others both how to enjoy learning and how to enjoy life. The life lessons I learned in those classes will stay with me for a life time. Overall, I’d give this school 3 stars. While some of those in administration, and the facilities could be better, the experience provided my some key teachers throughout the school made attending this school an experience that was worth it.
