Long Island high schools in top 100


Recently, Newsweek Magazine published the top 100 high schools in the nation and seven Long Island high schools were on the list according to the survey.

Newsweek magazine has been compiling this list of the nation's best high schools since 1998. From their standards the only schools that make it on the list are ones that do the best job in preparing students for higher education.

A leap up 20 slots from 2005 put John L. Miller-Great Neck North High School in Great Neck 23rd on the list, which made it the top-tanked high school in the entire metropolitan area. Placing first this year was The Talented & Gifted High School in Dallas, Texas.

Five Nassau high schools were ranked nationally including Great Neck North and two Suffolk schools.

In Nassau, Great Neck South High School came in 31st and Jericho took 27th place. Both of these schools were down a bit from the previous year when Great Neck South was at 22nd place and Jericho was 14th. Manhasset High School also dropped from 30th to 69th.

Cold Spring Harbor High may have dropped from 16th place to 35th place but it is still seen in the top schools in the nation. Vandermeulen High School in Port Jefferson also seen a drop from 64 to 96th just barely making the top 100.

The list of Newsweek's top 100 schools for Long Island are:

23. Great Neck North High School - Great Neck, Nassau
27. Jericho High School - Jericho, Nassau
31. Great Neck South High School - Great Neck, Nassau
