Valley Stream North High School Reviews

As someone who now works at a thriving and nationally ranked NYC public school, I can now see that my educational experience at North HS was adequate, but not excellent. I graduated in 2013 so things could have changed by now, but from what I remember the extracurricular activities were lacking for those who did not wish to participate in sports. On paper, they may have a small array of non-sport extracurriculars, however after joining a few I quickly realized they were disorganized, underfunded, and in some cases ran by teachers with little passion for the club. Academically, this school excels, however I wish there were more AP class options for students. Extra help is a great program for students that are struggling with a class or just need a place to do their homework, and the advanced and regular course offerings provide students with the ability to learn at their own pace.

So far, Valley Stream North is in bad condition. Foul smells from the cafeteria to even huge leaks from the ceiling that reaches the classrooms. A huge chunk of the ceiling was missing because of the leaks in my science classroom. Furthermore, broken sinks are often overflowing with water on the lab tables. The school is in such bad condition that whenever a student or teacher sees anything of poor condition he/she would say, “welcome to valley Stream North”. the quote is meant as a joke because vsn’s facility is outdated.
My experience at Valley Stream North High School was a very positive one. I received an excellent education which has prepared me for my next educational endeavor in college. My teachers were always available to help in any way including academically and emotionally. My mother fought breast cancer twice while I have been in high school, and the teachers and guidance counselors were extremely supportive and helpful. Without their support, I would have had a much more difficult time keeping up my grades. I am extremely happy with the education that I received at Valley Stream North High School.
