Jericho, Syosset Schools Top Tier


jerichoschoolsThe Jericho School District topped Long Island’s seven schools featured on the Washington Post Annual America’s Most Challenging High Schools List. 

Jericho came in with the highest local ranking of #83 and Syosset ranked #182.

America’s Most Challenging High Schools, compiled by writer Jay Mathews, ranks schools through an index formula that is a simple ratio based on the number of Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate and Advanced International Certificate of Education tests given at a school each year, divided by the number of seniors who graduated that year.

A ratio of 1.000 means the school had as many tests as graduates. Our school surpassed that average with Jericho’s ratio at 5.858 and Syosset’s ratio at 4.461.
