    "My son was bullied beyond words at this school to the point he was suicidal and the principal or teachers did nothing. If your child is not into sports or struggles academically they will be completely dismissed by staff. I do not recommend this school. I took my son out of this school, changed districts and he thrived, making the honor roll each semester. They do not care about students with any type of learning disability!"

    "I am about to enter 11th grade here at Massapequa High School. With this being said, I greatly appreciate the academic and extracurricular outlets offered to me and really do enjoy some of the unique offerings such as my broadcasting, forensics, and astronomy classes along with my more challenging classes such as AP English, AP American History, AP World History, and countless other AP classes (They offer almost every AP there is). After school, I love our drama club which puts on smaller, more intimate productions, as well as performing in our annual musical which becomes a very extravagant and exciting production. With all of this being said, I simply must give my school a 3 (well more like 3.5, but half stars aren't allowed) due to the extreme focus on athletics. Normally I would not have an issue with this as long as all other activities were funded just as well as our athletics program, however this is not the case. The musical gets a large enough budget each year, yes, but other clubs and organizations, ie: the drama club, are forced to start at $0.00 every year and really struggle to stay afloat despite these programs being the highlight of a lot of students' schooling."

    "Some of these posts, are submitted by a parent who has children that can do no wrong?...Most of the posts here of sour grapes. I have one son who went through and achieved great succesess academically over the sports that he played. My daughter currently attends and is often asked if she needs help in subjects to bring up grades with success and my youngest has no problem playing sports and keeping a high honor role grade in excellerated classes from 1st through junior high school. I did not have the opportunity to attend such schools growing up in Brooklyn and Queens. Suck it up. Although not perfect, our children have a damn good school system, if your parenting in the right way."

    "Massapequa High School is severely underrated as to it's academics. The Administration has done a great deal in the last several years to up the ante, so to speak, academically. It's paying off - the students are enrolled in higher level courses and the graduates are getting into schools which for years were closed to Massapequa kids. Are there drugs at Massapequa? Yes but someone tell me a school where there aren't drugs? Is it rampant or out of control? NO WAY! Unfortunately when you find a community where the kids have money the kids will use drugs. The teaching staf is excellent and I feel lucky that my kids have had and will continue to have the benefits of an excellent staff!"
