The Lynbrook Public School District is proud to announce that Lynbrook High School has been named a 2022 National Blue Ribbon School by the United States Department of Education.

Lynbrook High School was nominated in the Exemplary High Performing Schools category by the New York State Education Department. District administrators then completed a comprehensive application about school practices. Lynbrook High School was named a Blue Ribbon School.

“This designation is a tremendous honor and was achieved thanks to the hard work of our students, staff and administrators,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Melissa Burak. “Our entire community should be proud and celebrated for this outstanding accomplishment!”

“Our recognition as a Blue Ribbon School is a representation of the collective effort of all members of the Lynbrook community,” said Principal Matthew Sarosy. “I am so proud of the great work we do at Lynbrook High School. Our faculty and staff work hard to provide an exceptional educational environment for our students and, in turn, our students work hard to produce exceptional results. The support of our families is also critical to our success. Congratulations to the Lynbrook community!”

District officials will represent Lynbrook High School at a two-day awards ceremony in Washington, D.C. in November to celebrate this prestigious recognition.

According to the Department of Education’s website, the “National Blue Ribbon Schools program has honored America’s most successful public and non-public elementary, middle, and high schools” since 1982. The department also states, “A National Blue Ribbon Schools flag waving overhead has become a trademark of excellence, a symbol of quality recognized by everyone from parents to policy-makers in thousands of communities.”

“We look forward to hanging our Blue Ribbon flag proudly above the high school very soon!” said Mr. Sarosy.
