Syosset Senior High School Reviews

Syosset High School is where I spent all four years of my high school experience. Considering that it is a blue ribbon school of excellence, classes are quite vigorous. To remain competitive with one another, it is not uncommon to see students weigh themselves down with as many AP classes as possible, as I myself am taking 6 AP classes in my senior year. The teachers that I have had in my four years have been better than average. The majority of teachers who I have had truly aim to educate their students, and create connections with their students to ensure that they understand the material that is being taught. The school culture is below average. There is almost no school spirit, and 80% of the football game spectators are the students in the marching band who do not want to be there either. The school is also not very diverse. The majority of students are either Caucasian or of Asian descent, with less than 10 African American students in each grade.

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!
As a recent high school graduate, I can attest to how well Syosset High School prepared me for college. One thing that can be changed, however, is the competitive atmosphere. Most students at the high school are extremely obsessed about getting perfect SAT scores and perfect grades, and this atmosphere is very stressful. I think there needs to be an emphasis on more collaborative work and less perfection.
