St. Dominic High School

Saint Dominic High School offers a student-centered, Catholic education to young women and men on Long Island. The key to Saint Dominic`s perennial attractiveness and success is this: the administration, faculty and staff respond to each student in a personal and caring manner, treating her or him as an individual with unique needs, aspirations, and potential. Very simply, here "You are a name, not a number!"With an average class size of twenty-two and a student to faculty ratio of 13:1, Saint Dominic students excel in a curriculum designed to challenge the learning potential of each student. While offering a NYS Board of Regents Curriculum, students are able to go beyond state standards by taking college level, advanced placement, and honors courses, as well as our newly designed STEM program. One-hundred percent of the Class of 2017 was accepted to some of the world`s finest colleges and universities and secured over $23 million in academic, athletic and merit-based scholarships. Saint Dominic campus features a Science and Communications Center, which consists of five state-of-the-art labs. We have built and maintained research partnerships with Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and The Oyster Bay Waterfront Center. In addition, we have created a state-of-the-art World Language Lab for the Spanish and Italian curricula. The lab utilizes technology so students can learn interactively by speaking with and listening to native speakers and teachers can exposes students to college-level curriculum.We are excited for the launch of our 1:1 Chromebook initiative. The availability of one-to-one learning in our classrooms on a daily basis will offer many new learning opportunities to our students.Saint Dominic offers diverse programs in fine arts and athletics, allowing students to participate at a level consistent with their interests and abilities. The Charles B. Wang Saint Dominic Playing Fields, just 2.4 miles away from our main campus, is comprised of two baseball, two softball, two lacrosse/soccer fields, four tennis courts, and a retreat house, making it one of the finest comprehensive facilities on Long Island.

School Reviews

I attended this House of Horrors in the 1970's. I was bullied, physically beaten, traumatized, mentally and emotionally abused, ignored, laughed at, beaten again and again and again and the school did nothing. The jocks even threatened to rape my girlfriend in 12th grade who attended Oyster Bay High School. To this day I have nightmares and have recently been diagnosed with PTSD as a result of the treatment and neglect I endured in the Hell that is this place of education. To all my former classmates, Timmy, Dave, James, Dennis, John, Brian, Ray, Todd, I hope you remember "Bloody Tuesday" and know scars never heal. Remember Smitty???From my upcoming book;"Suddenly without warning Smitty, along with the rest of the football jocks surrounded me. He picked me up and slammed me against the wall of the gym, holding me over him, staring up at me and laughing. I knew I was in serious trouble. He proceeded to beat the living Removed out of me. After smacking me around, he threw me through the double doors of the gym out into the hallway as classes were changing. I was lying on the floor as kids walked all around me and Smitty kept kicking me. He and the rest of his henchmen, Timmy, Dennis, John, etc...picked me up and threw me into a fifty-gallon plastic garbage can filled with lunch trash, shoving my face in the thrown out food, milk and filth. Then, in his rage, Smitty picked the can up with me in it. Students gathered around for the fun. He then stuffed me still in the can into a wooden and glass framed public phone booth and tipped it over; glass from the door breaking and cutting into me as it smashed to the floor. They left me there, humiliated, bleeding and alone. I felt ashamed, frightened, hurting more inside than out. Every time you`re bullied you die a little bit. The school did nothing!" "It has been said, 'time heals all wounds.' I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone." Rose Fitzgerald KennedyHope you've all had a happy and productive life!
