#132 Best Public High School Teachers in New York
- Island Trees Union Free School District, NY
- Rating 3.94 out of 5 198 reviews
Parent: I am writing as a parent. My son flourished at this high school. If your child wants to succeed, he or she will get all the help that the school can offer and then some. I believe that the staff and Guidance Office really cares about the kids and wants them to achieve their goals.
My advice is, if your child attends this school or any other, then get involved. Meaning, attend the parent-teacher conferences and anything involving parents and students. Get to know their teachers and Guidance Counselor. That way, if you have to speak on behalf of your child, it is much easier to get whatever help your child needs to succeed in school.
Besides, the kids work hard to create the plays, shows and sports events that the school has every so often. Why not enjoy the moment and have some fun with your kids?
I'll finish this review with this. Thank you to the staff of Island Trees HS for working very hard to have an in-person graduation for these kids during the pandemic. Way to go!

Farmingdale Senior High School
#330 Best Public High School Teachers in New York
- Farmingdale Union Free School District, NY
- Rating 4.03 out of 5 252 reviews
Senior: My experience at Farmingdale was fantastic. My freshman year I left the Farmingdale district to attend a catholic college prep school. It was easy for me to make the decision to return back to my hometown school. Their golf program changed my life for the better. At first they only had a Boys Varsity Golf Team. When I came to the school they allowed me to play on it as a sophomore. At the time I was struggling with a newly diagnosed illness called Crohns Disease and being able to compete in high competition golf was what really helped me get through all of my hardships that I faced during my high school years. I can confidently say that I would not have been able to get the same experience at any other school because Farmingdale is the only school in our league that allows girls to play. Academically I thrived at Farmingdale, making honor roll every quarter I have been here. As for my senior year I finished 1st quarter with a 96gpa. I would only change the use of computers to iPads!
