Lynbrook High School earns Reward School recognition


Lynbrook High School was recently recognized as a Reward School by the New York State Education Department for its continued high academic performance among students.

“We are so proud of everyone who works diligently to challenge our students and help them achieve,” Superintendent Dr. Melissa Burak said in a release. “Lynbrook High School is a special place for our students and we are thrilled to be recognized for our efforts.”

Lynbrook High is one out of 24 schools on Long Island and 155 across New York state to receive the honor from Commissioner MaryEllen Elia. The recognition is based on student performance during the 2016-17 school year. To commemorate the achievement, Elia will present the school with a certificate of recognition.

Each year, the state’s Education Department grants the Reward School title to New York schools that have made the most progress or those that have the highest achievements in the state and do not have significant gaps in student achievement between subgroups.
