    "This school was excellent. I graduated in 05, one of my sisters in 10, and another sister in 13. We all loved it. I was a solid B student and was well prepared for Hofstra's Mechanical Engineering program. Now I'm making big bucks working for Amazon. Both of my sisters and I were multi sport athletes, were involved in several clubs/extracurriculars, and won several awards. The teachers really care about you. They don't let you slack, and are genuinely happy to see you every day. They were always willing to stay late if you needed help. Coaches are likable and motivational. We're not winning any state championships, but we have respectable teams. The school offers AP programs, art, band, orchestra, choir, sports, clubs, theater, a tv show (Falcon Report)...I'm sure I'm leaving out many things. The school is diverse also. We used to have football dinners where everyone brought in a dish, and there were so many different kinds of great food. The diversity is perfectly balanced; i haven't taken an official head count, but it feels like no group is truly a minority. Bottom line, my family's experience here was perfect. So happy I went to VSS. If I have kids, I hope they get to go here."

    "Horrible. Went so far downhill in the past few years since my two older children graduated that my youngest child now attends another school. The teachers are mostly nice, however the current/newish principal needs to go and many of the kids attending now are disrespectful and unruly in class, oftentimes making it impossible for the rest of the class to learn. Now that my child is no longer attending South, his grades have improved by over 30% and is making honor roll!"

    "Long Island has changed. I used to live in Long Island as a child. I moved to the city after getting married. After my children were born I decided to move back to Long Island,so that they could get a quality education. Instead, I got high taxes and an ongoing battle with the school district over what "quality education" really is. The standards here have sunk so low that my children felt more challenged in the city. There is smut being read in the classroom to "peak children's interest", I was told by administration. Reading about weed smoking parents and risque sexual encounters fosters my children's growth how? It's a shame when I have to suggest them reading "the classics". I have to put my children in extra classes outside of school for them to have access to challenging and age appropriate materials. It's no wonder why we are so behind other countries."

    "Horrible setting with very little structure. It's a shame, because I thought that we would have a good experience at South. Administrator is not involved enough and a lot of nonsense is going on. Many people are sending their children there from Queens, and unfortunately our tax dollars are rising every year. After 1 year, I pulled my daughter out and now have to spend additional money on private schooling. I would suggest to anyone moving into the area to find a private school or a new area."
