Ranked Among Nation’s Best

For the fourth consecutive year, Bethpage High School has been ranked among America’s Top 500 High School’s for 2016 by Newsweek magazine. Among the thousands of schools considered, Bethpage High School ranked No. 305 in the nation and jumped more than 100 places in the ranks since last year. Newsweek evaluates schools on a range of criteria to identify those that excel at preparing students for college and to identify schools within each state that have the highest academic achievement.

Information for consideration included SAT/ACT scores, Advanced Placement enrollment, graduation rate and the college enrollment rate for a district. For the 2016 graduating class, Bethpage boasts a 100% graduation rate, a 99% Regents diploma rate, a 67% Regents Diploma with Advanced Designation rate and 97.3% of students attending a two- or four-year school.

“Bethpage is proud to once again be included among the finest high schools in America,” said Superintendent of Schools Terrence Clark. “It reflects a K-12 program where teachers, parents, students and staff all collaborate to create a nurturing environment that values academic success. We thank and congratulate them all for this honor.”
