    Overall Experience: Syosset High School offers the best both academically and socially. Their graduates are extremely well rounded and well prepared for college. The work load is challenging and the teachers well qualified to assist in the success of the students. There is a great school spirit supporting the many sport teams and clubs.

    Overall Experience: Overall, I feel as though Syosset High School was great at always being up-to-date when it came to academic affairs. This was shown through all the AP and SUPA classes offered to all different kinds of students. The guidance department was somewhat of a weak point in my opinion, as they only seemed to care about the prestige of the university rather than the student's perspective.
