The Valley Stream Central High School District is proud to announce that Valley Stream Central High School has been named by the U.S. Department of Education a National Blue Ribbon School for being an “Exemplary High Performing School.” Central was only 1 of 3 Long Island high schools and 1 of 20 New York schools honored for their academic achievements as measured by state assessments or nationally normed tests.
“I am so proud of the work the staff at Central has put into creating such an outstanding learning environment,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Wayne Loper. “This achievement comes on top of many at Central, and is a direct result of the dedication our students, teachers and families have shown.”
“Central is honored to be designated as a Blue Ribbon School,” said Principal Dr. Joseph Pompilio. “The honor is a testament to our hard-working faculty and students. The Blue Ribbon award magnifies Central’s excellence in teaching and learning.”
The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program recognizes public and private elementary, middle and high schools based on their overall academic excellence or their progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups. This year, just 297 schools nationwide were given the distinction.
