    South Woods Middle School

    Blue checkmark.

    Syosset Central School District, NY,

    6-8,

    4 Niche users give it an average review of 4.5 stars.

    Featured Review: Middle School Student says I love SW almost about everything! Except its food and um, my peers. Some of my male and girl peers are a bit snobby and mean to me, just a few. Some girls there have cliques that do Tik-Tok when there are phone rules and also bully people.The diversity is really good when comparing to race, but not so good during lunch, especially when there's a North and South cafeteria. South has more cliques and "male peers".I believe the curriculum is above average, and that could be because it's in a suburb.Safety is a bit of an issue on the school bus, but it's typical in every middle school.There are 33 clubs this year but I never make it because they begin an hour before my bus comes.The food is okay, but there isn't a lot of choices.That's about it..
