23 Parent Reviews for Syosset Senior High School

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.

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 ...  Read more

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 ...  Read more

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.

I agree with both the positive and negative responses. I have graduated from Syosset High School and have become successful. The education is decent. But definitely yes, many of the negative aspects are well hidden by the faculty. The faculty strongly and obviously favors the 'elite ivy league bound' ...  Read more

Syosset is an amazing school. The standards are put extremely high for students. For example, every student in the high school takes certain Math courses a year earlier than other schools. My son is in 10th grade, and is taking Math 11 B2, a course that most Juniors take in other districts like Plainview. ...  Read more
