    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.

    Overall Experience: The people I meant here are absolutely amazing. I couldn't ask for a better group of friends to have by my side in high school.

    Food: The wraps and sandwiches are the best option but have the longest lines. The hot food can either be amazing, or kinda gross. Overall it's pretty average.

    Administration & Policies: Whenever there is a conflict involving a student, the administration is there to quickly and effectively resolve it.
