For the second time in less than a month, the Syosset Central School District is being recognized by the online rating service Niche.com. This week, Niche.com identified 36 Long Island elementary schools among the “100 Best Elementary Schools in New York State,” including all seven of Syosset’s elementary schools.

Niche.com’s 2018 Best Public Elementary Schools ranking is based on analysis of key statistics and millions of reviews from students and parents using data from the U.S. Department of Education. Ranking factors include state test scores, student-teacher ratio, student diversity, teacher quality, grade-school ratings and the overall quality of the school district. 

In August, Niche.com ranked the Syosset CSD fourth overall in New York State for 2018, moving up one spot from last year. Syosset received an overall grade of A+ based on various analyses of data from the U.S. Department of Education as well as test scores, graduation rates, college readiness, SAT/ACT scores and more. 
Last spring, Niche.com also ranked both H.B. Thompson and South Woods middle schools in the Syosset CSD in the top 10 in New York State.  

Through the years, Syosset schools have been recognized in other prominent rankings, including those conducted by U.S. News & World Report and the Washington Post, and the high school being named a National Blue Ribbon School last year. 

“While we believe that Syosset is one of New York State’s best school districts, we try to not place too much emphasis on these types of rankings,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Tom Rogers. “The acknowledgment is a welcome positive reflection on our programs and practices, and it’s particularly gratifying when all of your schools are recognized.”
