Due to its continued high academic performance, Lynbrook High School was recognized as a Reward School by the New York State Education Department. The high school is one out of 155 schools across New York State and one of only 24 on Long Island to receive this prestigious honor by Commissioner MaryEllen Elia.
The Department grants the Reward School title to New York schools each year that have made the most progress or those that have the highest achievement in the state and do not have significant gaps in student achievement between subgroups. This most recent recognition is based on performance during the 2016-17 school year.
“We are so proud of everyone who works diligently to challenge our students and help them achieve,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Melissa Burak. “Lynbrook High School is a special place for our students and we are thrilled to be recognized for our efforts.”
Lynbrook High School will receive a certificate of recognition from the Commissioner to commemorate this achievement.
