The district congratulates all three high schools as they have been ranked among the nation's “Best High Schools,” according to the U.S. News & World Report’s annual list.
This year’s edition includes data on more than 24,000 public high schools in 50 states. In addition, nearly 18,000 schools were ranked on six indicators, including graduation rate, college readiness, college curriculum breadth, math and reading proficiency, math and reading performance and underserved student performance.
The district is proud to report that South High School was ranked among the top 1,000 best schools nationwide, listed at 927. In addition, South High School was also ranked 15 in Nassau County and 83 in New York State. Central High School held a national rank at 1,352, a county rank at 21 and a state rank at 134, while North was ranked 1,855 in the nation, 30 in the county and 180 in the state.
The district is proud of this achievement and applauds the dedication each school devotes to its students and program.
“This work does not happen overnight and takes multiple years of commitment to excellence, when you consider the factors for these rankings,” said Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction Christian Bowen. “I want to thank our principals, department chairs, and teachers for their tireless efforts to achieve this recognition.”
