Senior: Somers High School offered me excellent opportunities during my time as a student there! With a plethora of AP, IB, Honors, Regents, and elective courses, my education has been very diverse and adequately prepared me for college. Every department at Somers High School is very strong, well-staffed, and well-funded. Every student has the chance to excel in every program, and teachers are very invested in their students and want them to learn and grow. The only downside is that the student body is very exclusive, and oftentimes any discussions on real-world events/politics are met with hostility if students disagree with you. A small portion of our student body is very intolerant towards people of color and varying faiths, but generally people are as accepting as a school with a mostly white student body really can be-we aren’t well-prepared to enter more diverse environments despite our school’s efforts to promote tolerance.

Parent: I live in a blue ribbon public school district, but decided to send my children to Kennedy for the specialized attention and holistic approach they take towards not only education, but personal growth of the student as well. My daughter and son could not be more different in interests and personalities. My daughter is outgoing, skilled in science and math and enjoys playing sports, while my son tends to be more quiet and reserved, excelling in arts and humanities. We had the pleasure of watching them build on their interests and blossom during their time at Kennedy in very different ways. Even though their paths were quite different, they both made excellent friends, strengthened healthy core values, and went on to be accepted at some of the most prestigious universities on the East coast thanks to the rigorous academics they became accustomed to at Kennedy. As parents, we could not be happier with the choice we made in sending our children to this excellent school. 5 Stars!

Senior: Lakeland is a place for growth, adaption, and, most importantly, love. Over my 12 years as a student in this district, I have met a fantastic group of friends, and I have had teachers that I all wish could win the lottery. The teachers at Lakeland care about you, they want to see you succeed in life, and they do everything in their power to help you. I was always an outgoing child, almost to outgoing, and Lakeland is a place where you are accepted as you are, loud Italian voice and all. Three weeks into my freshman year, my father passed away. The days following my father's passing, families, and sports teams in the district filled my home with love and support. All of the sports teams, including coaches, all came together and comforted my mother; it is because of them, three years later, I am writing this. My major in college will be education, and one day I hope to come back to Lakeland and teach. Lakeland is the district I would pick in a heartbeat to raise my future children.
