Alum: The Manhasset school district will grant you a solid high school experience. The teachers are great and it's safe. Some of the sports teams are top in the state too. Manhasset is a very prestigious district with lots of academics being much harder than other schools. The school prioritizes on the students who do the best. More students in a graduating class will end up going to an Ivy rather than the local community college. That is because the district almost expects you to go to an Ivy league college. There will be no awareness in your entire experience of getting into a trade for a career, it almost creates a stigma that going into a trade career is looked down upon. Even the students who are very "average" for the district, usually aren't shown much support by the district, and it makes it harder for those students with the academics being so hard. This ends up leaving them very confused in the college process and onward in their lives.

Alum: Throughout High School, I was highly challenged by the classes I took which included some honors and some AP classes. I think this is beneficial because once I reached college, I realized not everyone had been challenged as I was. In addition, it made the courses I was taking somewhat easier. However, I believe if there are different teachers for different courses, the course should be relatively similar. For example, I took Regents Physics and one of my friends did as well, but she had a different teacher. When we compared our tests, we noticed they both required different skills in physics, one was harder than the other. Teachers throughout the school are very helpful and flexible with their availability.
