Approximately 750 students are enrolled in the 2017 Syosset School District Summer School program, which offers a wide variety of enrichment and remedial courses for students to remain active and mentally sharp while demonstrating their creativity, learning some new skills and reinforcing their knowledge in core subject areas.

Approximately 45 staff members have been involved in administering courses to Syosset students from grades K-12.  Housed at Syosset High School, summer enrichment courses cover areas such as advanced computing, art, dance, math, music, physical education, science and science research, social studies, Spanish and writing. There’s even a “Kids in the Kitchen” cooking/baking class and the unique Summer Stock program, which offers students in grades 6-12 an opportunity to hone their theatrical talents and learn all phases of play production. Summer Stock culminates with a performance in August that is open to the community. This year, the group will present "Willy Wonka Jr.” for the community on August 10 and 11 at the high school, beginning at 7:30 pm. Band and orchestral classes, as well as the dance class will also culminate with concerts for parents.

Remedial offerings cover basic skills and multi-sensory reading for elementary students; language and math for middle school students; and English, math, physical education, science and social studies courses for high school students. Driver’s education is also available.

“Syosset Summer School provides students an experience for enrichment and remediation in a setting that all children can grow from,” said Summer School Principal Chris Meyers. “The courses require students to engage in many aspects of learning while experiencing an enjoyable summer.”
