• 8th to 9th Grade Transition Overview
    To prepare eighth grade students for their journey to Syosset High School, the District has developed a comprehensive program designed to ensure students and their families have the necessary information, a network of support and a successful foundation that empowers them to take advantage of the wealth of academic and co-curricular opportunities available at Syosset High School. 

  • The Incoming 9th Grade Parent Orientation will take place on March 20th, 2024. The virtual event will be recorded and shared. 

    The meeting includes an overview from student representatives of our co-curricular programs and offerings, and Mr. Ruffini, our assistant principal of guidance, provided an overview of the programs available through the Guidance Department during the four years of high school.  

    If you have any questions, please contact the high school’s main office at 516-364-5675. 

  • Guiding Principles

    • Every child can maximize their potential and build a schedule that recognizes and builds upon individual strengths.

    • Students should be kind to themselves in 9th grade and strive to create a balanced schedule!
