Syosset High School is an incredible place to learn. The teachers are friendly, caring, and determined to help their students be the best they possibly can. Almost every teacher I have had is extremely approachable and easy to communicate with. The education is unmatched, but what goes unknown is our great principal. Dr. Durante is one of if not the best principal's in the nation. He cleaned up Syosset High School beautifully and welcomes students every morning at the front door of the school. He cares for every one of his students, and shows it with great enthusiasm every morning!
Review Syosset Senior High School
I am proud to be a student of Syosset High School and I express this through every tour I give. SHS is not only diverse in its students and faculty but also in its curriculum. Whether you're painting ceiling tiles in AP art classes or learning to save lives in Lifeguarding, there are endless opportunities for each and every student. SHS's teachers are truly special too. They are always willing to help students in need; extra help is available every week and its open to any students regardless of their teacher. For math classes, the school set up an assist program where students can attend an extra help session during their lunch periods. SHS makes sure to offer whatever necessary to enhance their students' intellect and passion. It is a special school, one that I'm fortunate to be in.
Syosset Senior High School is a rigorous school that offers a variety of classes. There is definitely an elective that exists that interests every kid - and even if your interest is not shown through a class, the interest is shown through clubs, groups and research opportunities. All the teachers prepare you well for exams and for college - and the information that is being taught is never brushed over. Additionally, there are many extra help dates and times for students to utilize if they need extra assistance.
