Newsweek has once again recognized Syosset High School as one of the best high schools in the country as part of its 2016 America’s Top High Schools rankings.
    
In its 2016 list of the nation’s top 500 high schools, Syosset was ranked 118th nationally. The Newsweek rankings are based on a college readiness score determined by average AP/IB, ACT and SAT scores, along with graduation rate (99.3 percent) and college-bound percentage (97.6). Counselor-to-student ratio and student retention rate over four years of enrollment also factor into the ranking.
    
“I am extremely proud that Syosset High School is again being recognized as one of the top high schools for student achievement and preparation for postsecondary education and professional life,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Thomas Rogers. “This is a testament to the school’s leadership, dedicated faculty and guidance department, supportive parents and hardworking and mindful student body. I marvel how our students excel in so many areas, gain acceptance to a wide variety of major colleges and universities and still find time to participate in the fine arts, athletics, school and community service activities and many other enriching experiences available to them.”
            
Syosset High School regularly appears in Newsweek’s list of America’s Top High Schools and has been recognized by the news organization in the past for helping low-income students score at or above average on state assessments. Newsweek used data from the National Center for Education Statistics for its 2016 rankings.
