School Reviews

  • Recommended January 03, 2011 - I have to say this school is the worst school in Long Island . The Principal & all staff claim that there concern is for the students far from it. They pride on giving detention and discipling kids but show no concern for caring or educating.This is probably why they have a low attendance rate. Living a nightmare in Oyster Bay School. - Posted by Parent
