Herricks High School Ranked Among the Nation’s Top Schools

Herricks High School has been ranked No. 327 on the U.S. News and World Report’s Best High Schools list, one of only 19 public schools on Long Island that were among the nation’s 1,000 best, according to the report.

High schools are ranked on six factors: college readiness, reading and math proficiency, reading and math performance, underserved student performance, college curriculum breadth and graduation rates.

In addition, while the six indicators that determined each school’s rank were the same as those used in the three prior years, U.S. News adjusted its calculation to account for the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I congratulate the entire Herricks school community on this outstanding designation,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Fino Celano. “This recognition is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our students, staff, parents and greater community!”
