Academics   2014-07-01
This school offers many classes for those who want to go ahead in their learning and achieve college credit while in high school.


Academics   2014-03-01
As an AP and honors student, I have had amazing, inspiring, passionate teachers that go above and beyond to teach about the subjects they love.


Academics   2013-07-01
The academics offered at my school include Regents-level and AP/Honors classes. The teachers are all fantastic; they actually take an interest in how the students learn. They can relate to the students, and try to make it easy for all of us to take an interest in what we do in class. The curriculums are planned ahead of time and we never have a class where we just do absolutely nothing. The scheduling process is always on-time; it rarely is not delayed. The workload is decent, not too much homework and not too less. The middle of the year is around where we have the most amount of work to do, but in the beginning and in the end, we have very small amounts of work. The end mostly consists of studying for our final testing. Special study options include peer tutoring, which is run by the National Honor Society. They try to help anyone who is in need of help in a class. Popular classes include Anatomy & Physiology, Computer Science, and Accounting. These classes probably have the most students in each class.


Academics   2013-08-01
my school strives to have every student reach our goals. we are offered many ap/ honors courses. and many sports and clubs to enter giving us students the best learning experience we can


Academics   2013-08-01
The academics offered include general classes and AP/honors classes. Students can take everything from Art to Band to AP Calculus or even AP Physics. Some AP/honors classes require certain prerequisites for entry, such as AP Chemistry before AP Biology and both AP Chem and AP Bio before AP Physics. The workload for advanced classes can be intense at times, but is well worth it.


Educational Outcomes   2014-08-01
I chose to take the best, most challenging classes that this school offered me. In college, I am doing the same. William Floyd High School gave me the confidence to take on whatever obstacles I had met and gave me the right amount of preparation for any situation. It taught me that college was essential in life for what I wanted to do, so I did my best and am now a successful college student.


Overall Experience   2016-01-01
I am receiving an amazing education here. There are a myriad of clubs and activities to get involved with. These organizations have amazing opportunities and experiences. Floyd gives me more than any school in my area could ever give me.


Overall Experience   2015-11-01
I would have to say that I enjoyed my high school experience here at, William Floyd High School, and I am very sad it will be ending soon as i approach graduation. Since junior year, I have been lucky enough to participate on our girls track and field team. Everyone at this school is unique and there are just so many events that go on throughout our school, but we all stay together have share our pride that we have with our school. This school is filled with different people and all sorts of different cultures. It is very interesting to see how we all come together as a family. If I had the chance, I would definitely choose this school and do my high school career all over again. Overall, after i graduate, my experience at William Floyd High School will be sadly missed.


Overall Experience   2014-07-01
I have loved my experience in this school and it has impacted me as a person tremendously. There might be some issues that arise with the students, but we all come together when we need to support our school.


Student Culture & Diversity   2013-08-01
Student involvement is pretty large here; the Student Government and various other organizations and clubs play a pretty vital role in the functioning of the school. There is almost no peer pressure, and most of us are pretty accepting of others. Although you have your average, standard amount of challenges that ethnic/racial diversity and sexual orientation bring, it is not something that is blatantly obvious. We are unified and rarely discriminate.


Teachers   2016-04-01
I personally, have never experienced a teacher who failed to do their job adequately. All of my teachers throughout high school have given me ample amounts of help, both outside and inside of the classroom. They go above and beyond to make sure their students are where they need to be.


Teachers   2015-02-01
The teachers are really nice and approachable with easy to follow lessons


Teachers   2014-10-01
Teachers are fantastic with all the students.


Teachers   2014-06-01
As I was an honors student, all of my teachers were very involved with the students and were interested in communicating with us


Teachers   2014-03-01
The teachers I have had are amazing. They are passionate, knowlageable and go above and beyond. They are always willing to help, even with things outside the classroom.


Overall Experience   2013-09-01
This school has a great sense of pride in sports, mainly the champion football team. Going to the LIC game was a great experience. I met many great friends and the school is easy to get used to. I would like to go back if i could.


Overall Experience   2013-08-01
I love my school. The people are friendly, the teachers are truly informative, and the courses offer a wide variety of information. My favorite experiences include being a part of the Quiz Bowl/The Challenge Academic Competition Club, being a leader of the National Honor Society, and many others. I would choose this school again if I could do it all over, because I do not at all regret the paths I have taken. The people I have met and the experiences that I have had, are what make me who I am today. As such, I would do it all over again if I could.


Overall Experience   2013-03-01
My school has flaws but it's improved my life.


Teachers   2013-08-01
all of the teachers go 1000 miles to make sure we succeed, from kindergarten to highschool we are pushed to shoot for our dreams.


Student Culture & Diversity   2013-10-01
its pretty diverse although theres mostly Italians and African americans


Teachers   2013-06-01
Every teacher I had was excellent at what they do. It was very rare to find a teacher that didn't belong teaching. The teachers were always passionate about their jobs, finding new ways each year to teach the material to students in a refreshing way.


Teachers   2013-03-01
AP teachers are phenomenal and have helped a lot.


Teachers   2013-08-01
Like most public schools anywhere, there are teachers both above and below par.


Teachers   2013-08-01
The teachers are what makes the school great. The majority of teachers go above and beyond the standard. They stay way past extra help willing to help any student in need, even if the student isn't one of their own. The teachers are constantly asking the students for feedback on lessons and new ideas for the future, making the students feel included and important. The teachers are willing to help on any topic, including that not involved with school. The teachers are also very understanding of the importance of other classes, sports, and clubs and are willing to move deadlines if needed.


Teachers   2013-08-01
The overall quality of teachers is very good, as the teachers are very willing to help their students after school and whenever they are available. The teaching styles vary; some teachers are very active, while others give Powerpoint presentations from their desks. Their knowledge is very high, as these teachers have been teaching for years. They try their best to help students succeed, out of a normal desire to help them. The teachers' communication skills are also very good; they have their own styles of reaching out to students and others. In addition, their grading style also varies, but each teacher usually sticks to his or her own way of grading. Many are very strict in grading, but this is just to help us overall. The teachers are awesome here.


Teachers   2013-06-01
The teachers that I've had, have been very knowledgeable in their areas of study. They are very helpful and caring. They frequently stay after school and help when a person is struggling. Overall, I believe the teachers are great.


Student Culture & Diversity   2014-03-01
The students at this school are incredibly diverse and accepting of students of different sexual orientation.


Student Culture & Diversity   2014-01-01
For the most part, my high school was very accepting. There was little to no peer pressure regarding drugs and alcohol and no one was ever ridiculed for their beliefs, race, or sexuality.


Student Culture & Diversity   2013-11-01
Due to the fact that my school is so large, the different cliques rarely intermix, so bullying because of differences, like sexual orientation, or personal choices, is something I have never seen. This bullying also does not occur because the people at my school seem to accept each other's choices very easily. I have made it seem like cliques never associate with others, but they do. I personally have a large variety of friends because I enjoy the company of people who are nice. Different cliques all have their positives and negatives, and the negative people just ignore those they don't like due to the fact that they would be ostracized by a majority of the school, including their own friends. That is why I think my school is quite accepting.


Overall Experience   2013-03-01
I loved my school. It is such a diverse place that no matter what your hobbies or interest are, you can find a group to be friends with.


Overall Experience   2013-09-01
The teachers and friends I've made in this high school have been great. However there are still flaws such as the amount of students in the hallways traveling from class to class and the distance from one class to another. With about 3,000 students in the building, many expansions have been made to the school to make it even larger. On a positive note, I don't think I could've made it through my past few years at William Floyd without the great friends I've made and how they've supported me through everything. Some clubs have been eliminated due to budget cuts but I still manage to keep myself occupied with the wonderful youth and government group and by joining the track team. I think one of my favorite memories is how I pushed myself harder in every race to try to PR.


Student Culture & Diversity   2014-06-01
im more of the fun creative person


Overall Experience   2013-06-01
Every teacher I have come across at my school was amazing. You can't find a better quality of teacher. However, the student body is filled with kids who are just a burden on those who try to succeed in school. Also, the administration makes the job tough for teachers to do properly.


Overall Experience   2013-06-01
I love my school. I have made so many great friends and the teachers are amazing. I have a pretty large school that is still expanding. There are so many courses to choose from such as culinary arts, cosmetology, carpentry, a variety of sciences, and many other electives and music courses. I would definitely choose to go to this school again.


Overall Experience   2013-08-01
Our school isn't bad and I do enjoy going there.


Overall Experience   2013-08-01
The experiences I've had people I've met and opportunitys I've been given I don't belive I would have received in any other school.


Overall Experience   2013-08-01
all the teachers and faculty make this school the best it can be i love my school.


Teachers   2014-01-01
The overall quality of teachers is good. I have had a few great teachers who really taught well and had an interest in me.


Teachers   2014-09-01
Most of the teachers I've had are great. They are able to teach in a way that I'm able to comprehend and learn


Teachers   2014-08-01
My teachers have all been great.


Teachers   2014-07-01
I feel like the teachers are really friendly and connect with the students very well.


Teachers   2014-07-01
The teachers are always available to help students in need and they care about getting the students to pass.


Teachers   2014-07-01
The teachers at this school are fantastic. They are interested in their jobs and are usually nice to be around. They know what they are talking about and teach in the most comprehensive way possible. They are consistent in grading and don't play favorites, which is important. The teachers are interested in their students and care about their well being and personal lives, and if a student needs to talk, they listen and offer their best advice. They vary their teaching styles based on how the students respond, which provides for successful learning.


Teachers   2014-06-01
i have alot of fav.teachers because they really care and wants us to pass


Teachers   2013-10-01
there pretty good teachers they try to help us sometimes they do have favoritism though


Overall Experience   2013-12-01
I feel as a school overall it's actually pretty decent. There are a lot of diversities in the school which is great. Some of the teachers are pretty OK and are actually wanting t help a lt of students and do whatever it takes to help them through a course. I feel like that is great because me as a student sometimes it takes me a little longer to understand a concept. For some it may take a day, but times I may need to spend a week or so just to understand it fully. I also love that our sports teams are really great and how we have a great music program and so many different types of clubs. If I had to I might would go back to the school and do it all over again, but mainly because I would want t do sports again.


Overall Experience   2013-11-01
This school is definitely unique because of the people in it. Many people at other schools call my school "ghetto" and it is far from it compared to city schools. It has a bad reputation, but that is only from certain things that have occurred at my school; for example gang violence, fights, drug usage, but these things do not occur all the time and how often they occur has been exaggerated. Also, the many "cliques" stick to themselves, such as the people involved in gangs, the smart/ nerdy kids (me), the ones who would rather spend their time at a party than at home, the music kids, etc. I think this is a good thing because people of other cliques rarely get into fights with or bully one another. My schools diversity is only negative if you hang around a negative clique.


Overall Experience   2013-10-01
I love my music department and i do believe i am getting a good education. I feel like my highschool experience is a typical experience fo any highschooler and that i am involved in just the right amount of activities.


Overall Experience   2013-10-01
it was fun but I feel as though it could of been a lot better


Teachers   2014-12-01
Each teacher at my school has a different style of teaching. Though some stick to the traditional classroom expectations and techniques, others incorporate modern technology, opinion, and self expression into their lesson plans.


Teachers   2015-03-01
I had some great teachers that helped throughout high school.


Student Culture & Diversity   2013-07-01
The cultural diversity at William Floyd is apparent. We are filled with all different races just the same as the melting pot America has turned into. Acceptance I'd say has been a big issue at our school especially for the minority kids. But the minority population at Floyd is growing strong and these students might not be the minority for long. Since this is happening, the acceptance rate i'd say is looking better every day.


Student Culture & Diversity   2013-03-01
This school is very diverse and we rarely see any bullying.


Teachers   2016-05-01
Many of the teachers are incredibly knowledgeable and care about the academic success of their students.


Teachers   2016-01-01
They truly love what they do and they truly care.


Teachers   2016-01-01
In the humanities (e.g. social studies and English), the teachers are high quality. However, in the sciences, there are several teachers who are lacking in knowledge, efficiency, and character.


Teachers   2015-05-01
I believe the teachers at William Floyd High School are very well engaged in daily lessons. They push us to strive and take that extra foot forward to do what we need to do, which is very inspirational.


Overall Experience   2015-06-01
My favorite experience was participating in Key Club and being the club's Editor. I would go back to this school because most people would agree that you find your niche somewhere and it feels like home away from home. I found mine through the music department.


Overall Experience   2014-01-01
My experience at my high school was amazing. By staying involved in various extracurricular activities, such as Mock Trial, Youth and Government, Jazz Ensemble and Pit Orchestra, I was able to avoid any problems and create the best environment possible at a public school.


Overall Experience   2014-01-01
Despite a number of clubs being cut my freshman year due to budgetary issues, I was still able to have a great experience and join life shaping clubs that helped me decide what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.


Overall Experience   2014-01-01
I think William Floyd is a great school. The teachers really care about you.


Student Culture & Diversity   2013-08-01
There seems to me at least, a great divide, that exists between the honors students and the "other" students. Then again, this is probably common at public schools.


Overall Experience   2015-11-01
As a student from William Floyd High School, I am proud to say we have many great programs. Wether it's sports, clubs, or our music department William Floyd is recongized for it all. I have had the honor to be selected into the CTE Cosmetology program within my school. Culinary, automotive, nursing, etc are other of the extra classes we have to offer. These classes, help kids like myself come out of high school with life skills. Floyd always offers college credit courses. I am currently enrolled in Virtual Enterprice and Computer Applications that I will be getting college credit for from Farmingdale. We have many clubs that you can take part in. Key club, youth and government, honor society, student council, best buddies, yearbook club, and so much more. Our music groups include; symphonic orchestra, colonial band, jazz band, chorus, select choir, etc. and we have many sports also. William Floyd has something special to offer to every student, it is truly great to be part of such a giving community.


Overall Experience   2015-11-01
The school is massive so there is so much socializing and even then you wouldn't be able to know everyone in the entire building. There are numerous after school clubs and sports teams and the teachers are always there to help you.


Overall Experience   2014-12-01
I could not imagine attending a different school than William Floyd. It's a very welcoming environment, filled with positive people. Teachers and other staff are constantly offering encouragement, advice, and support. I would not be the person I am today if I had not gone to this school. Although my school consists of over 1,000 students, everyone is friendly and it is so easy to meet new people. I am going to miss this school very much when I graduate in June but I know that I have a bright and exciting future ahead of me.


Overall Experience   2016-01-01
The food is terrible, as are many of the teachers. However, there are numerous engaging classes and extra curricular activities to improve matters somewhat.


Overall Experience   2016-04-01
As a recent 2015 graduate from William Floyd High School, I have had such an incredible experience. I have had some of the best teachers across the entire Island that genuinely care for their students. I have been extensively involved with school sports and clubs which have all led to amazing friendships and great opportunities for my future. Despite the many criticisms that this school district receives, it provides its students with an exceptional, well-rounded, environment. Many students who come out of this high school don't realize the benefit from attending such a diverse school until several years after graduating. I strongly support the William Floyd School District and would recommend it to parents looking to switch schools.


Overall Experience   2016-03-01
This school offers a lot of different clubs and each has a unique experience. I've made most of my close friends through these clubs, and being in them have opened up more opportunities for me.


Educational Outcomes   2013-09-01
I felt prepared for college and the real world thanks to certain electives and guidance i received. Many options were explored by counselors.


Academics   2013-08-01
The academics are great. We have a wide variety of AP courses and a ton of electives for kids to pick from!


Academics   2014-04-01
I think they are all very good.


Educational Outcomes   2015-02-01
College is going really well, and I attend a small college, so the teachers are a lot more relatable. I always felllike I can take on the world


Academics   2014-01-01
Teachers help students through the curriculum but the school's processes can also just push kids through the system.


Academics   2014-01-01
Students are for the most part expected to take the same academic path with the exception of AP and honors classes. It would have been nice to see a wider variety of electives, AP's and maybe even add an IB program.


Academics   2013-10-01
The courses at William Floyd is beyond magnanimous. There are AP classes, honors, and regular classes. You obviously must be recommended to be in AP and honors classes.The electives are very broad, such as: Criminal Justice, psychology, forensics, sculpture, photography, painting, drawing, SAT prep, statistics, etc.


Academics   2013-10-01
William Floyd has so many classes to chose from. They even have some college-credit classes. There are the general classes but there are also more intricate classes like AP-Art or Business Law. You can take honors classes in almost every subject. Some teachers really care about their job and their student but there are others who couldn't care less. Better teacher evaluations are needed. Also, the scheduling process is based on what classes you took and not based on what classes you can achieve in based on your grades.


Academics   2013-09-01
The teachers at our school are very good at what they do and I haven't had any trouble with any of them. The courses offered include various AP and honors courses, general courses, electives, upper and lower musical performing groups, different art classes, and a CTE program (similar to Boses). The workload for honors/AP courses is a lot heavier than general courses, but this is understandable due to the fact that they are college level.


Academics   2013-09-01
There is plenty of great teachers that are dedicated to helping students learn with a fair work load. The school has nice electives that students love. Plenty of honor and AP classes.


Academics   2014-06-01
i have learned alot i can use for the real world


Academics   2014-08-01
The academics are very strong at school. It offered 13 AP courses when I attended and the teachers are some of the best. The curriculum is very informative but not too tough. The scheduling process is very easy; one meeting with the guidance counselor and the schedule can be set. Workload is not very heavy, although it does tend to get busy during the middle of the year. Yet, it is not something that cannot be handled. Extra help is always available to students who wish to receive it and there are also tutoring options available for those who feel that they need it.


Academics   2014-07-01
sometimes the teachers will teach only to a certain group of people during class but after school there is alot of help given


Academics   2014-10-01
its okay for the fact of if you have a proper teacher or not


Academics   2014-08-01
This School has allowed me to use my artistic drawings and to advance in other areas of art.


Academics   2014-06-01
Many teachers wanted to help and were available after school.


Academics   2014-07-01
The teachers at this school care a lot about both their students' personal lives as well as how they perform in class. It I very obvious that they are dedicated and passionate about their jobs. The curriculum is challenging, but not so challenging as to discourage students. It pushes them to do their best. The scheduling, in past years, has been inconvenient because classes are usually far away from each other, and even the teachers complain they cannot get to where they need to be in the allotted time between classes. The workload is sometimes very heavy, but usually doable. Popular classes are usually those with the friendliest teachers who joke around but also know their area of study, which most times are the advanced courses.


Academics   2013-09-01
My school has many opportunities to expand your horizon above and beyond. They offer the library before and after school. The teachers are there till 2 everyday and they even help out on their free periods. The curriculum is decent. It's not to hard and its not too easy. They offer a lot of AP classes and art classes. The work load is pretty good, its very reasonable.


Academics   2013-12-01
There are many different types of classes that are available at my school. I have a problem with some of the teachers about how they teach. I feel like I don't understand the concept because of the way the teacher teaches us. I know in a lot of AP classes there is a lot of work for the kids but I think its a decent amount if your in a AP class.


Academics   2013-11-01
The workload varies at different grade levels and different academic levels. I personally tend to be in the more advanced classes; honors, APs, and have noticed that, being in a more advanced class, my workload is much greater than the average William Floyd High School student who takes the general or plain regents classes. I have also noticed that my workload, seeming extremely unmanageable in 9th and 10th grade, has become more manageable in 11th grade now.


Academics   2013-04-01
The teachers are good. There are some really good classes like photo and other art classes, forensics 1 and 2, culinary, business classes, nusic classes,foreign language classes- spanish 1,2,3,4, italian 1,2,3,4,ap classes. If the class isn't ap the workload isn't to bad even the italian and spanish classes are pretty easy.


Academics   2013-02-01
We have many different classes offered to us, but music and art classes are being taken away slowly.


Educational Outcomes   2015-03-01
William floyd high school prepared me academically


Educational Outcomes   2015-03-01
I feel like high school had alot of paper work that kept my grade so high while in college there isnt much so it can be challenging to keep it as high as it was in high school.


Overall Experience   2016-05-01
Overall the school was great for my academics. I did very well and made a lot of really great friends that I still talk to regularly. The social environment of the school was less than desirable, however. I'm not sure if I'd want to do it again.


Educational Outcomes   2014-06-01
I don't feel that high school adequately prepared me for college, however I suppose I was provided with enough information for me to find my way.

Dora Lo Corriere +The greatest discovery of my generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind.+ This quote by William James shows that people can change for the better just by simply changing themselves. If I become a psychologist, I will be able to help make these changes. Tragic events in lives can be psychologically damaging and alter someone+s outlook on life. The tragic events I have experienced, and the ones that I have witnessed would include friends who have become depressed, turn to drugs, or even attempted suicide. I want to help people before they can do harm to themselves. I want to make a difference by supporting those in need and distress. However, one major event that has transformed my view of life was when my friend died in a drunk driving accident. This tragic event affected me, and several others dramatically. I may not have let that cause depression for myself, but friends of mine were horribly impacted. Most of the boys who were his friends wanted to turn to violence because of the anger and rage they felt. They wanted to hurt the driver who was intoxicated while driving. This was their reaction because of their personalities. The reaction for most of the girls however was self harm. Watching how this negatively affected people that I care about made me realize that I want to help others to cope in other ways that are more positive. This death is obviously a horrible event, but we all learned a valuable lesson. We have now witnessed that it is never a good idea to get in a car with an intoxicated driver. We now understand that we must support each other and seek help if we need it. As I grow older, I realize that my passion began with a tragic event, but through it I know that I want to help others. I want to become a psychologist who is committed to helping others, but I also want to build a practice and become part of a community.


Overall Experience   2016-01-01
The staff should be more supportive


Overall Experience   2014-12-01
always given the opportunity to succeed


Overall Experience   2014-09-01
The education system is great, the students ruin the overall experience. sports are welcoming and well known for being undefeated and many teachers show their love through teaching on a daily basis. I wouldn't join this school if given the opportunity to again because many students are not motivated and focused. however, i have managed to have an A grade throughout high school and i do thank my high school for that.


Overall Experience   2014-08-01
This School is very close to my home,and most activities are very easy to arrive at.


Overall Experience   2015-08-01
A handful of teachers were absolutely amazing! They genuinely cared for us as people, our well being and what we wanted to do in the future. However, other teachers were hard to work with and it was evident they didn't want to be bothered with questions or concerns. For the most part, other students were great and classes were fun. Only a handful of kids ruin it for everyone else. The best things about the school are the sports, the clubs and the teachers that really care for you. The worst thing about the school is the kids that wander the halls and interrupt classes, and the lack of discipline given to the delinquents.


Overall Experience   2015-07-01
My overall experience at William Floyd High School was a memorable one. My favorite experience in high school would defiantly have to be the varsity foot ball games. This school is unique because the students are diverse with different cultures and backgrounds. If I had to do my high school experience all over again at William Floyd I would just for the fact I learned a lot not only from the teachers but the students. #floydpride


Overall Experience   2014-01-01
My overall experience at this school has been pretty good. I was never bullied or picked on and all of the teachers are friendly. The school isn't dominated by one type of person either, you have the jocks, the art kids, the video game kids, the music/theatre kids and the student council/YAG kids. No matter who you are you can quickly find friends and fit in with some group. Unfortunately, there are some low-lives and just no good kids in the school. They cause trouble amongst themselves sonetimes but never really seem to bother anyone else. If I had to do the whole school experience again, I wouldn't mind going here.


Overall Experience   2015-04-01
This is a big school, has a lot of after school activities.


Overall Experience   2014-07-01
This school has a great academic system as well as music, sport, and extra curricular programs. However, I feel like security and the principal should and can work harder to make it an enjoyable experience for well-behaved students and have more effective punishments for misbehaved students. For example, the consequences of a select group of trouble makers often impacts the whole student body.


Teachers   2015-04-01
Most teachers are professional and knowledgeable. Helping students a lot. They are staying after school for extra help.


Overall Experience   2014-06-01
This school's reputation has declined over the years


Teachers   2016-03-01
Most teachers are average and do little to inspire students. Fortunately, there are a handful of great teachers and I have had some of them.


Teachers   2016-02-01
Teachers are different and it depends how they present themselves as an individual and if they take their jobs seriously and the student.


Teachers   2014-09-01
teachers try to make it as welcoming as they can


Overall Experience   2013-09-01
Although my school has not had the best ratings, I would not change a single thing. Everything I went through at my school has made me the person I am today. I've made great friends and memories that will never fade, and I've learned lessons that will help me in the long run in life. I've loved all the classes that I've taken. Virtual Enterprise is great, personally, I think its better then economics. And my culinary class is beyond words. I love everything about my high school experience. And am very grateful it all happened at William Floyd High School.


Overall Experience   2013-10-01
The teachers (except for one or two) are great! The curriculum is great. The only thing I would say is bad about the school is the administration. They are "trying", but in my opinion, not enough. They give all the bad kids way too many chances and punish all the good kids with them. Their testing/regents/class system isn't the best either. Also, there are way too many students and not to many counselors to actually care about all the students. Besides these flaws, this is a great school with great people.


Overall Experience   2013-10-01
My school tries their best but with a rude staff students often feel belittled.


Overall Experience   2013-11-01
Generally, my high school is only good if you want it to be. The building is near decrepit, a fifth of the student body needs to be monitored, and the school seems to care little for anything arts related; however, if you have the drive to do well in your studies, you can succeed well and be able to say you did at a school where fights are an everyday occurrence.


Teachers   2013-10-01
The teachers aren't as cliche as you may think. They're all diverse, magnanimous, compelling, quirky, and open-minded. They all have different teaching styles so you must get used to their ways as soon as possible. The teachers I have had are beyond amazing. One teacher I had was valedictorian, another came from Italy to study physics.


Overall Experience   2013-09-01
Some teachers leave everlasting impressions on you. Every teacher is so unique. The physical appearance of the school isn't as appealing or approaching but once you get inside the faces of teachers and students make the high school amazing. There may be students who tend to roam the halls and do what they're not suppose to do, but the majority of the student population are interested in their future of becoming successful.


Student Culture & Diversity   2014-06-01
People were not as accepting to each other as they should have been. Mostly only honors kids were involved in activities.


Overall Experience   2013-05-01
i really enjoyed this school and I've had a lot of great experiences and moments in this school, plus over the years I've spent here I've made a lot of great friendships and connections that could last me a lifetime. if i could do it over again i would because i enjoyed it that well. another thing about this place i loved is that the teachers are proud to be apart of this school system and are proud to just help there students be the best they can be and help them reach their goals for life after graduation and high school.


Overall Experience   2013-03-01
I love all of the friends I have made throughout high school. We have had such great times through the years and with our teachers. I like how I have created such strong bonds with certain faculty members and students and would not change my high school experience at all.


Student Culture & Diversity   2014-12-01
Many students belong to all different types of groups and are very diverse


Student Culture & Diversity   2014-08-01
the School is very diverse,and the student body allows for you to interact with lots of different cultures.


Student Culture & Diversity   2014-07-01
The students at this school are mostly accepting of people who are different.


Student Culture & Diversity   2014-07-01
This school contains students of all different races, including people born in different countries. I do not observe much peer pressure in the groups I associate with, but I am sure it exists. A small percentage of students actually have school spirit and are involved in improving the school because I have been told that the school I already bad, which is not true. Overall, the social scene and opinions of the students vary greatly.


Student Culture & Diversity   2013-12-01
My school is very diverse and there are many people that have different religions or racial backgrounds. Lots of people are accepted for who they are whether they are black,white,Spanish, or Muslim. There is also a club at my school for gays,bi-sexual's,lesbians and transgender. I know a lot of kids that do drugs and a lot of kids who have gotten pressured into taking drugs,\.


Teachers   2013-02-01
They are usually very personable and willing to help, but some you try to keep conversations to a minimum.


Student Culture & Diversity   2013-09-01
The majority if the student population are Caucasian. There are plenty of Hispanics and African-Americans, but not enough Asians or other ethnicity. There are many racial slurs among the students against every culture, people are not that accepting and can sometimes be very patronizing. Hopefully, in the near future the school starts accepting the fact that not everyone is going to reach other people's standards and everyone has a different journey they lead.


Student Culture & Diversity   2013-04-01
There is peer pressure and a lot challenges some people have to overcome. You will meet a lot of diiferent people in your four years here. Everyday at this school is interesting.


Overall Experience   2014-06-01
they are kids that dont care anymore and just walk around


Overall Experience   2016-02-01
Its a good school but I don't like the fact that they cut off theatre and acting before I got into the high school. We only have a musical once a year and its so unfair because your either in or out. There is not that many chances. People that actually want to learn how to act and perform can't do it. I want to be someone into that kind of field like film directing and acting--even a little dance although I haven't taken any dance classes. I'm currently making a book with my special time while doing a lot of hard work in school like Ap.


Overall Experience   2016-04-01
I probably wouldn't choose this school again if I could do it all over. Some teachers are excellent. Others are not. My school resembles a prison. It is gated and even has a guard shack now. Am I a student or an inmate?


Student Culture & Diversity   2013-10-01
LOTS OF DRUGS. the blatant drug use and distribution is insane


Overall Experience   2013-05-01
If i could have started my high school career over I would have. Yes I have made good friends but I have also been bullied by many of my peers for no reason at all other than a hereditary medical condition I had. Many teachers are rude and are not willing to help you prepare for exams. The custodians in the school are rude and the security guards do nothing. There are constantly fights and students walk around the hallways in between periods and are told nothing. Do to budget cuts I am only in a few extracurricular activities. If i could start over I would have attended a better high school.
