6 mos in st the HS level with three students and 1 in grammar school. (after the local private school closed)We started out in the district with students in Riley Ave 12 years ago. It was a decent district then albeit terrible for our IEP student ( hence the private school jump) been in this district for 20 years as residents. It’s now a failed district though NYS changed the labeling if you read up on its stars you’ll see it’s no place you want current students if you can help it.

Diversity is a strength. AP classes are available and well taught. Latin program is excellent. The school orchestra string program, jazz band and choir are all excellent. You might have to know the guidance counselor to get into smart physics in 9 th grade, don’t let the counselor intimidate you if you know your kid is smart. Make sure to have them put your kid in smart physics, great opportunity for kids.

Within our wonderful Riverhead High School, there is a club that has a great group of students involved in a leadership program called Key Club. These students work in all areas if the community to provide volunteer hours where needed; from raising finds for homeless programs by sleeping outside themselves to face painting at school carnivals. At the present time, trey are collecting prom dresses and other items to provide for anyone who needs a dress. These funds would be added to help any one who needed assistance on the school.

When we move out to Riverhead we had concerns simply based on what other people were telling us. What we found and have experieced is the complete opposite! The Riverhead District is by far one of the best on the east end. The smaller districts don't compare with the programs that are offered. The community recently step up and approved over 80 million in renovations. I assume it gets a bad rap due to the diversity but that provides a real world learning environment for the students. The kids will all benefit in the long run both academically and character. It's sad how some parents are closed minded and only look for schools with no diversity. I don't understand why this site only gives it 3 stars when the majority reviews are 4 and 5. The couple 1 and 2s are over 10 yrs ago.

My kids love thier schools and teachers. The Riverhead District is negatively perceived by folks outside the town who know very little about the town and District. The facts are the district has great programs in both sports and academics. Our student population is a class act where most excell in all areas. It's great to see all our sports team mentor elementary kids across the district. Are their some bad apples...of course....like any other district. Many folks perceive it negatively simply because it's not all white. It's sad but true. The truth is the district is comparable (and in some areas better) than neighboring districts.
