    "If you're living in the area, then I certainly suggest attending this school due to it's fantastic community events such as the homecoming parade, spirit week, plays and athletic events open to the community. What makes Sewanahaka unique is the diversity of its student population, which allows for an intermingling of perspectives and student initiatives that are effective in achieving their goals in the 5-district community (one of only 2 left in the Long Island area). I would choose to attend this school again due to a combination of the academic experience as well as the range of extracurricular activities the school invested efforts into."

    "Overall the teachers represent a diverse and dedicated faculty, committed to the educational goals of the American Secondary Education system. A student at this school can feel comfortable with the idea that they are receiving a strong foundation for secondary education and can proceed to higher prospects confidently with an expectation for continued success."

    "I loved most of my teachers at this school! I really had no problems with any of them. Some teachers were tough but it was only to better us as students."

    "Depending of the kind of teacher you get because there are different teachers for same subjects. All teachers have different styles in which they teach but that is not necessarily a bad thing, you can gain different informations from different teachers which increase your knowledge of that particular subject. But with the years I've been here I've gotten teachers with wonderful communication skills although they all have different grading types and are all not consistent with the way they grade they are easily approachable with good knowledge of what they are teaching and are want the best for their students."

    "Overall, the workload is not horrendous. In fact, it is very manageable, even if you are an extreme procrastinator. However, if you take Physics or a lot of AP classes, managing your time takes off a boatload of stress. Most teachers here are very willing to work with you so, so if you come to them with an issue and are willing to put in some effort, you should do well, even excel. The converse is also true- if you put in little effort, skip class and your attitude is very lackadaisical, don't expect to get anywhere; the teachers simply haven't the time or energy. As for the scheduling process, it is an inefficient mess. If you spend enough time in the guidance office, you can get things done... most of the time. Your counselors are willing to help but they are definitely overworked so do not expect over-night results for really anything. Leave them notes, visit them every so often (especially in your junior and senior years), leave emails and be responsible. The onus of making sure things get done is mostly on you."
