Secondary School ranks as a Top School in the Nation

Manhasset Secondary School was ranked in the top 200 public high schools in the nation according to the 2021 U.S. News and World Report’s annual list. Manhasset came in at rank 162 and is one of only nine schools in Nassau County to place in the top 500.

This year, nearly 18,000 schools were ranked based on six factors of different weights including college readiness, college curriculum breadth, math and reading proficiency, math and reading performance, underserved student performance and graduation rate.

The Secondary School also had a national ranking of 139 for the best STEM High Schools. U.S. News looked at the top 1,000 public schools from the Best High Schools ranking and then evaluated their students’ participation and success in Advanced Placement science and math tests to determine the top science, technology, engineering and math schools.

“Congratulations to our Secondary School community and Principal Dr. Dean Schlanger on this high ranking,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Vincent Butera. “This is truly a testament to the hard work and dedication our students, faculty, staff and community. Manhasset continues to be a leading district of academic success in the county, state and the nation, and I could not be more proud.”
