Manhasset Middle School was ranked in the top 50 public middle schools in New York according to a new ranking from U.S. News and World Report. Manhasset came in at rank 40 and is one of only nine middle schools from Long Island to make the top 50. More than 1,200 middle schools in the state were ranked in total.
“I am proud of our students, staff and the entire Manhasset Middle School community. This latest ranking is a reflection of the hard work, dedication and achievements earned by our students,” said Secondary School Principal Dr. Dean Schlanger.
Scoring is based on students’ performance on mathematics and reading/language arts state assessments. The data that was used is from the 2018-2019 academic year, preceding the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on test-taking.
This was the first year U.S. News and World Report released rankings for public elementary and middle schools. Unlike high school rankings, there are no national rankings of elementary and middle schools.
