Center Moriches Reviews

Center Moriches is a small town with a great welcoming community. The school district consists of small classes of no more than 160 students. They are known for the thriving athletics such as Baseball, Softball, Track, Cross Country, Basketball, Soccer, and recently producing very talented wrestlers. Because of the small community it allows for a tight bond with people you will see in the halls everyday even if you do not have a class with them. Although some groups of sports are very successful it has lead to a smaller focus on certain sports I did not mention earlier. This can be difficult but the school always supports the teams and tries the best to get an audience at all sporting events. It is a very quiet town where not much goes wrong and is a great place to start a family, as my parents did with me and my two sisters. Center Moriches will always be a part of my identity of who I am and who I am going to be and I am proud to be forever a Red Devil.

Small town USA. . I am blessed to have grown up in the area where we are surrounded by beautiful waterfront, nature, open space, downtown shops and restaurants, where we get to enjoy many street fairs and parades. I have spent my summers kayaking, swimming and fishing in the bay, plus enjoying the ocean beaches just minutes from home.
It is a classic small town. The picturesque main street and close proximity to Long Island beaches are major perks. On the other hand, small town gossip and cliques often overtake the relaxing atmosphere.
