I love living in Syosset. Not only are the schools great but the community is absolutely wonderful. I enjoy giving school tours to prospective students as I can talk auspiciously about my school since I'm so proud of it. We have so much diversity among our students and classes. From molding clay into pots in Ceramics to studying cinema in literature classes, we truly have something for everyone. The neighborhoods are safe and there are so many great things to see in the town and towns around it. Not to mention, we can visit the city using our flexible train system.
The schools are in Syosset are great education wise. However, Syosset is overly expensive, and can create many children to grow up spoiled. Everything you pay for in Syosset will be overpriced. Although living here will hurt your wallet, it is definitely a good place to educate your children.
