Shoreham-Wading River High School has been named a “Reward School” by the New York State Education Department for its academic achievement. It is one of only 67 schools throughout Long Island and 250 schools throughout the state to receive this designation.

The high school was recognized as a “Reward School” for the high progress it made during the school year. As a “Reward School,” Shoreham-Wading River High School is now invited to compete for up to $150,000 in grants, provided through the federal Race To The Top Program.

According to Superintendent of Schools Dr. Steven Cohen, “I am extremely proud that our high school was named a ‘Reward School.’ It is a validation of the ongoing hard work of our administrators, teachers and students.” Shoreham-Wading River High School Principal Daniel Holtzman added, “Our hard work is paying off and progress is being made. I’d like to congratulate our entire community for working together to improve our schools and I look forward to continuing on this path.”
