Syosset Senior High School Reviews

Syosset, for the most part, is a good school—it has all the clubs you could possibly imagine (over 100 I believe), & classes ranging from music theory to AP Physics C. It wasn't hard to distinguish the classes I liked & was willing to pursue, from the ones that I wasn't so keen on taking (sorry Ap Spanish!) For the purposes of a holistic review though, I have to take into consideration the things I didn't like about Syosset: the changes in the middle of the year & seemingly unnecessary renovations. Two years ago, the school implemented a new bell that came out of nowhere (along with a new security system & attendance policy); It took a while to get used to these new changes. This summer, the school took on some costly renovations: a new hallway at the front of the school & new weight room for gym classes. Besides construction taking over 5 months, I feel like the money could have gone into better things, such as air conditioning or heating. All in all, Syosset HS is a great school.

I must say that most of the teachers at Syosset HS are amazing. I've really felt that so many of them are dedicated to making their students motivated about learning. That being said, I do think that there are many teachers who don't understand that their class isn't the only class that their students are taking. The environment can be very pressure-filled. My sophomore year was quite intense, but my senior year has been a lot more enjoyable. Regardless of the aspects I think can be improved about my high school, I'll definitely miss this place next year.
Syosset is a great school with a myriad of educational opportunities. A big problem, nonetheless, is the entitlement and privilege that plagues the halls. Catering to upper-middle-class families, Syosset is no stranger to the snobby and arrogant attitudes of its students.

Also, my guidance counselor sucks.
