The New York State Department of Education recently named Jericho High School as a High Achieving Reward School.
Reward Schools are either schools that have high achievement or schools that have made the most progress in the state and do not have significant gaps in student achievement between subgroups.
To be identified as a Reward School, a school must:
In addition, high schools must have graduation rates above 80% to be a high achieving school and above 60% to be a high progress school and the percentage of students in the school who graduate with a Regents diploma with advanced designation or a Career and Technical Endorsement (CTE) must exceed the state average. High schools must also demonstrate that their graduation rate for students who entered the school performing below proficient in ELA or math exceeds the state average.
Each Reward School will receive a certificate of recognition from the Commissioner.
