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

White Students are Now the Minority in U.S. Public Schools
Increasing birth rates among immigrant families from Asia and Central and South America, combined with lower birth rates among white families, means that for the first time in history, public school students in the United States are majority-minority. This shift in demographics poses difficulties for schools as they work to accommodate children of varying language abilities and socio-economic backgrounds.
