Syosset High School Earns National Recognition

Newsweek has recognized Syosset High School as one of the best high schools in the country as part of its 2015 America’s Top High Schools rankings.

In the list released on Aug. 20, Syosset was ranked at number 219 nationally and also received a special designation recognizing the school’s inclusion in Newsweek’s “Equity measure” by helping low-income students score at or above average on state assessments.

“I am pleased that Syosset Senior High School continues to be recognized at the national level,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Thomas Rogers. “Without the dedication and hard work of our amazing faculty and the students themselves, this accomplishment would not be possible.”

The Newsweek rankings are based on a college readiness score determined by average AP/IB, ACT and SAT scores, along with the school’s counselor-student ratio. Newsweek also listed Syosset’s graduation rate at 99 percent and college-bound percentage as 98.1 percent.

”These criteria only scratch the surface of what makes a Syosset education special – our arts, athletics and sense of community are every bit as impressive as our academic accomplishments,” said Dr. Rogers.
