Last month a list was released by Newsweek ranking the top high schools in America. Oyster Bay East Norwich High School showed up as number 425, making it 64th in the state.
“Rankings such as those by Newsweek provide important measures of district progress as we strive to truly maximize each student’s personal potential for their futures,” says Dr. Laura Seinfeld, Superintendent of Schools, Oyster Bay-East Norwich Central School District. “We continue to design and refine learning opportunities focused on excellence and equity in alignment with the Oyster Bay-East Norwich Board of Education’s first goal for the 2013-14 school year: ‘to continuously improve curriculum, instruction, and assessment in order to enhance learning opportunities and achievement of all students.’”
Dr. Dennis O’Hara said, “We, at Oyster Bay High School, are proud of this ranking. We strive to provide our students with the best education and overall experience possible. Newsweek’s ranking is an indication of the effort that is put forth by our students, faculty, administration and Board of Education. It is also reflective of the supportive partnership we enjoy with the community. There are many great things happening at Oyster Bay High School each day. Being ranked by Newsweek magazine among the nation’s top high schools is just one of them.”
