    This is my first year at SBS, but i already love it here. All of those bad reviewed are bogus.
    1- The food is GREAT!
    2- The faculty is amazing!
    3- There is nothing to hate about the wonderful, diverse community at The Stony Brook School.
    Come join us and have the best school years ever. You will be prepared for college, and may even get into Ivy League schools! I know a graduate who is going to Stanford from SBS. You are always successful after going to this amazing school. You don’t have to be Christian, I’m not, it’s a great thing to have cultural appropriation, and to learn about other religions. :)

    World-class education. Kids leave the school ready to take on the rigors of the top universities in the U.S and around the world. The community is diverse and richly international. Kids are safe in an environment that has a zero-tolerance policy towards alcohol or drug use. Culture is rooted in ethics and faith. Although historically a conservative-leaning school it has made huge inroads embracing more open-minded and progressive ideals. Could not be happier as to the quality of academics and character education that is made possible at this incredible institution with talented and dedicated educators. Keep an eye out for their top athletics, jaw-dropping competitive choir and a theater program that always delivers impressive dramatic and musical productions.
    The academics are challenging but rewarding for those that are looking for a challenge. There are AP and college-level classes that certainly help students prepare for college. The teachers are very competent, responsible and try to develop deep relationships with their students. The student body is very diverse, with some coming from Asia, Africa, Europe and South America. The teachers are quite diverse too, most of which are not from Long Island! The food, made by Sage Dining, can be hit-or-miss. Some foods can be questionable, but it is mostly decent. The school is making an emphasis on improving the facilities of the school but need to fix some dorms.
