Syosset CSD Named No. 16 in the Nation by Niche.com
Once again, Niche.com has recognized the Syosset Central School District as one of the premiere school districts in the nation. Last month, the website ranked Syosset No. 5 among school districts in New York State. Now it has named Syosset the 16th best district in the entire country!
    
The organization ranks over 8,000 public school districts based on statistics and millions of opinions from students and parents. The latest study factored in Syosset’s academics, administrative leadership, college readiness, clubs and activities, diversity, food, attention to health and safety, resources and facilities for students, sports programs and quality of teaching. Syosset received an A+ grade in most categories including top colleges that students are interested in and a “very high” enrollment in advanced mathematics as well as high participation and success in advanced placement programs.
    
“Being ranked 16th in the country brings national attention to a program that we already believe serves our students exceptionally well,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Tom Rogers. “Niche.com measures many different aspects of school life. While academic success is an area of important recognition, it’s gratifying to receive attention for being a well-rounded system with an abundance of diverse and rewarding extracurricular opportunities, as well as resources that help students to achieve success in college, careers and life.”  
    
In addition to last month’s statewide ranking, Syosset schools have previously received high rankings from Niche.com, including No. 3 for teaching for the current year. Last year, the site recognized Syosset High School as one of the top high schools in the country, joining the Washington Post and U.S. News & World Report as institutions that rate Syosset among the best in the state and nation.
