The Castle Program, essentially a mini-school within Syosset High School, is designed for non-special education students who need a different environment in order to succeed. These students, who are "at risk" because of a history of poor class and school attendance and achievement below their capabilities, meet in a separate setting of small-sized classes. Instruction and support is provided by a closely knit team of teachers who focus on realistic expectations. Participation in the program is voluntary and requires written agreement from the student and his/her parents. Any student who wishes to be considered should see his/her guidance counselor. Sophomores, juniors, and seniors will be enrolled for the program.
