A relatively affluent town on the North Shore of Long Island in Nassau County. The reality is that Syosset itself is not too much of a rich town (there's a trailer park off Jericho Turnpike). It is however surrounded by wealthy towns such as Muttontown, Woodbury, and Oyster Bay Cove.

It has a predominantly White population, but has recently seen a large increase in Asians and Indians due to the school district. Syosset Central School District is generally known as having one of the top 5 high schools on Long Island.

Students in Syosset High School can usually be placed into one of two categories. Honors or Regular Classes. The Honors students will take full schedules of Honors classes and later AP and college-level courses. Honors students are usually either Asian, Indian, or Jewish. Many of these kids skip lunch to take another class. These are the kids in 15 clubs and 7 sports, while juggling an internship, a side-job and hours of homework. They will do just about anything to make sure their college app is pristine, so they can get into a top university.

Then there's the Regular class students who are much more chill and don't worry as much about every little thing that happens. These are the kids that rather develop a social life. By junior and senior year they tend to take 2 or 3 free periods and chill. Many can be found before school at Stillwell smoking weed with their friends. They end up at SUNYs, local universities, and of course "NKK"

A town located on Long Island. There are lots of affluent residents and most all have a good amount of money. Houses are ridiculously expensive, with small split-level houses often running for upwards of $650k and houses rarely selling for under $1M in some areas. Taxes are also VERY high.

Syosset is one of the best school districts in the country, with Newsweek magazine ranking Syosset HS as the #42 high school in the United States. Students receive very good grades. College Day at this school is characterized by many students in sweatshirts for Ivy League and other high ranked schools.

Syosset's population is largely Jewish. The kids spend their summers at camp, located often in Pennsylvania and Upstate New York, and weekends spent at least one bar or bat mitzvah. Syosset has a lot of students falling under the "Jewish American Princess" stereotype, usually rich girls, but not all Syosset students are like this. Many are nice, smart, and driven." Syosset also has a huge Asian population, with up to 1/3rd of the student body being of East Asian ancestry. Most of these kids have parents who immigrated to the U.S. from Asia; they rarely speak English and expect highly of their children. Many honors classes at SHS can be found as having a majority Asian population, and these students are obnoxious about their superficial intelligence.

Although Syosset has its ups and downs, it is overall a pretty good place to raise your children, especially if you want them to succeed.
"I went to college at the University of Michigan and my best friend is named Carly Goldman. She's a total JAP, but I love her."

"Is she from Syosset?"

"Yeah! How'd you know?

"My friend at Cornell, David Chung, is from Syosset, too."

An extemely affluent town on the famously rich North Shore of Long Island. Most residents have egos as big as their bank accounts and enjoy cruising in their expensive foreign cars.

Syosset High School is ranked one of the best high schools in the country and has a student parking lot containing cars much pricier than those found in the faculty parking lot.

Syosset, or SYO! is largely Jewish, with a large number of workers commuting to NYC every day.

The average home price in Syosset recently surpassed $1.6 million

A small town on the North Shore of Long, Island. Has a great school, but is ultimately a very average town. Those who live here are convinced that they live in an extremely affluent area, but they dont. Syosset is SLIGHTLY above average and is not upper class but upper MIDDLE. It is made up of a bunch of tiny homes, condos, and a TRAILER PARK. Syo is a town full of wannabes who like to stand on their wallets but when doing still end up standing short. Syosset High School does, however, have wealthy students. In fact, Oyster Bay Cove and Muttontown are some of the wealthiest towns on LI. But Syosset is….just not. Basically, almost everyone in SHS is braggy and self-absorbed, but Syosset kids are the worst for they lack the assets to back it up.
Oh, you're from Syosset? Oy vey.

An exceedingly rich town located on Long Island. Residents in Syosset are diversed, and there is a large Jewish population. Many of these kids spend their weekends going to sweet 16's or bar/bat mitzvahs, each one has probably been to at least 10.

Syosset is home to many of the hottest girls in New York, and they all go to country clubs and spend weekends with their friends.

The Syosset High School is one of the best high schools in the United States, and teachers are paid a whole lot. But, there also is a lot of drinking in this school.

Homes in Syosset are extremely expensive pricing sometimes millions of dollars.

Syosset Girls aren't always your typical "jewish-american princess" that dresses in Juicy Couture and Prada".
They have extremely nice taste in clothing, but they might have up to a couple of closets full of clothing.

There is not that much black residents in Syosset, but there are a lot of asian residents. And Syosset is home to some of the hottest asian and caucasian girls.
Woah, shes hot, shes definately a Syosset girl.

A wealthy town in Northern Long Island. There are many people that consider themselves poor even though they pay at least 600 grand for a house here. There used to be a trailer park but we closed it down to make our town look richer. Syosset is mostly white, but has a lot of Asians, Indians, and some Muslims. People are usually very judgmental and make assumptions quick in Syosset. This stems from the Jap or Jewish American Princess. They are just your stereotypical rich white girl except usually smarter and Jewish. It is typical for most japs to go to summer camp and have fun with their jappy friends from the tri-state area. Most settle in Syosset for their school district. Syosset has an excellent high school with challenging classes. The honors and AP classes are filled with Jews, Asians, and Indians. Many kids who aren't in honors besides being retarded in the honors kids eyes are laid back and actually can enjoy their weekends without a shitload of homework. Many kids go to parties whenever there is anything that people can celebrate and drink, smoke weed, do hard drugs, or vape. High School students are usually up until 1 am each night because they either procrastinated or had to do 89 things before they could start. Honors students also usually drop out of classes if they have a B and fucking wreck the non-honors classes. Now I may sound a little mad, but I'm not. Syosset is my town and for every negative there is a positive.
Oh look at the Jap over there with her Victoria's secret bag and all that rich shit even tho she's probably upper middle-class at best.

Bet You she's from Syosset
