Bethpage High School has been named a Reward School by the New York State Education Department for demonstrating an exemplary standard of high academic achievement during the 2016-17 school year.

The SED identifies Reward Schools as those ranking among the top 20 percent of schools in English language arts and mathematics assessment performance, having a graduation rate above 80 percent, and obtaining the most progress and/or highest achievement in the state without significant gaps in student achievement.

Bethpage High School is among 155 schools statewide and one of only 24 schools on Long Island to earn this distinction from Commissioner of Education MaryEllen Elia. 

“We are proud that Bethpage High School is ranked among the highest performing schools in Nassau County, which is certainly a reflection of the high level of instruction taking place in our K-12 classrooms,” said Superintendent of Schools Terrence Clark. “However, we are even more pleased that we are able to balance academic success with our programs in art, music, drama, athletics, 21st-century learning and technology. The students, parents, faculty, staff and Board of Education really do work together to provide an engaging learning environment.” 

Bethpage High School will receive a certificate of recognition from Elia to commemorate this achievement.
