Lauded for excellence in student performance, student growth, graduation
rate and progress during the last academic year, Miller Avenue School
and Shoreham-Wading River High School have each been named a 2018-19
Recognition School by the New York State Education Department.
Recognition Schools are identified as being among the highest-achieving
schools under the state’s Every Student Succeeds Act for high academic
achievement and for student growth and/or graduation rates. Both Miller
Avenue School and Shoreham-Wading River High School are among the
schools named that have also met or exceeded measures of interim
progress for English language arts and mathematics, lower rates of
chronic absenteeism, and college, career and civic readiness. “We are
very proud of this honor as it highlights the ongoing high-level
commitment by our entire school community of educators, administrators,
support staff, parents and students for educational excellence,”
Superintendent of Schools Gerard Poole said.
