J Taylor Finley Middle School Ratings & Reviews
Horrendous. This school looks and feels more like a correctional facility. From the moment you pull up to the grid-lock entrance (yes, this school is so overcrowded that your child will be late if you choose to drive rather than throw them to the wolves who ride the buses) bitter, enraged security guards yelling at parents, administration and other staff never smile or say hello, “normal” kids move in and out like zombies among the bullies (primarily illegal immigrants) who regularly vape on the buses and in the locker rooms and carry knives in their pockets. Fist fights in the hallway are a regular occurrence. Majority of teachers are downright unfriendly-as miserable as they’re making the students. Huntington, you can do better with our tax dollars. Shameful.
My son has excelled while at Finley. They keep them busy & offer great clubs & activities. The Tech classes focus on topics such as robotics & hydroponics! So very unlike the school I teach in where they make bird houses!
Finley is a fantastic school! The principals are awesome, the teachers are on the ball! It's been a lot of work for my children, but they have learned a LOT! The school has great sports after school, great after school activities that are not sports oriented. They have wonderful support for the students. The building is secure, clean and cheerful. All around an amazing school. We came from the Northport school district and are so happy we made the move, the school districts just don't compare! Huntington BLOWS Northport away.
The school itself was good, with excellent and friendly teachers and an updated curriculum, but the administration is a little too scatterbrained for comfort! They put my daughter in another Spanish class and they didn't notify her for another two weeks after she was supposed to show up. I heard of a parent whose child left the school and then got a call saying that the child was not present.
