Campus history and School facilities

In 1949 the School District acquired the 124-acre (0.50 km2) South complex in Lake Success from the former estate of Henry Phipps, Jr., steelmaster and one-time partner of Andrew Carnegie.[1][10][11] His mansion and 9 acres (36,000 m2) were gifted to the district by the Phipps heirs and is now the Phipps Administration Building.[1][10][11] The rest of the property was purchased for $279,000.[1][10][11] In 1957, South High School was built on property surrounding the administration building.[12] When the estate was donated, there was a stipulation that part of it be kept in its natural state.[12] That condition was met during construction.[12]

In 1958, Great Neck Senior High School was renamed Great Neck North High School to differentiate it from the district's new Great Neck South High School.[1][10][11] Prior to 1979, Great Neck South High School included Grades 10 through 12.[13] But in 1980, Grade 9 was added to the high school.[13] Today the school has 75 classrooms.[14] In 2006, the school was renamed to honor Dr. William A. Shine for his respected status that he had to the Great Neck School District.[15]

In 1980 Great Neck South added the 9th grade. As of 1988 Great Neck South has open campus privileges. Great Neck South has more restrictions on its open campus than Great Neck North. Rona Telsey, a spokesperson for the district, said that while Great Neck North is near a major shopping center, Great Neck South is further away. In addition, she said that a student would need to use a car to go off-campus for lunch. Prior to 1980, all students had open campus. In 1980, the school decided that younger students at Great Neck needed more restrictions than older students. Beginning in 1980, only 11th and 12th graders at Great Neck South had open campus privileges.[16]

Academics

Students are provided with educational opportunities which include Regents, special education and TESL.[17] Students take major sequences in several fields of study which are required for graduation.[17] In addition, students elect many others according to their abilities, interests, and future plans.[17] The music and choral programs are well-known and students with an interest can participate.[17] Students are offered an independent study program to explore their own academic pursuits, guided by a teacher.[17] Students are offered eight languages, including Mandarin Chinese and American Sign Language, and remedial education.[17] The school operates on a 7:59 a.m. to 2:33 p.m. schedule.[18] This includes nine periods of instruction.[18]

Special education programs

Great Neck South is a comprehensive public high school. Therefore, it is required to meet the needs of students who are at-risk of failing academically. These programs listed below are designed for them. Some students who are at-risk may be asked to leave Great Neck South to attend a special education school, special class operated by another school district or other in-district special education program.[25] Parents are urged to look at these programs to determine if these are in the best interest of their child. If Great Neck South fails in providing the best interest for the child, parents are urged to use their "due process procedures" to challenge the school for not providing a "Free Appropriate Public Education" that is guaranteed by the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).[26]

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
