    "I went to SHS around 10 years ago and I can honestly say that the education I received was superb. There were so many things in college that I found easy while my classmates struggled - and it was because I was exposed to the academic rigor of college before I even started. I am now in my late 20's and very accomplished - did very well in college, attended graduate school, and landed a great high-paying job that I've been working at now for 4 years. I'm now looking to buy a house and I hope I can find something located in the SCSD!"

    "It is a shame that this school has such promise academically but suffers from an overly competitive student body that is cliquey and mean. So many of the students come from privileged backgrounds, which in itself is not a problem, however the attitudes of many of the parents and students is snobby and superficial. There is no dress code and many girls wear next to nothing to school. The teachers are hit or miss, mostly miss. The best part of going here is the extensive course offerings and the after school activities. This school needs to stop pushing honors and AP classes on their students and spend more time creating a more congenial atmosphere where students are not bullied and mistreated by other students. If you have a nice, sweet child....do not move to this district!"

    "I'm a 1999 alumni of this school and I definitely received a top notch education at Syosset HS (I'm now a pediatrician). But as anyone knows it takes more than just academics to make a great school - and the extracurricular activities and the staff involvement are what make SHS stand out. In fact the extracurricular activities I participated in at SHS are what made me stand out when I applied to college. These extracurricular activities helped shape my character and are also where I made friendships that have lasted through the years."

    "I graduated from Syosset about a decade ago. There is absolutely NO DOUBT in my mind that I received a top-notch education. The curriculum is diverse. About 90% of my teachers went above and beyond regardless of the student and truly care about the success of the students. I always strived to reach my full potential mainly because of the highly competitive nature of the school. This can either be a positive or negative depending on the type of student your child is. This brings me to the second point. This was not a very nurturing environment. While I received the best ACADEMIC education, social and emotional character development was never really addressed. Like I said previous, students are extremely competitive with academics, social groups, cliques, and extra curricular activities. Although its a highly rated school because of academics, I would not want my child to grow up in this environment where respect, loyalty, tolerance for others and general kindness isn't being fostered through the curriculum."

    "Syosset HS is a great school because it offers excellent classes for students of all abilities. It is also a very generous school, where the students continuously raise funds and plan activities to help others. The giving spirit is what sets Syosset HS apart from the rest."
