Locust Valley High School qualifies as a New York State Scholar-Athlete School of Distinction for the fifth consecutive year and the sixth time in the past eight years. This prestigious honor means that every one of the high school’s varsity athletic teams earned scholar-athlete status by achieving a grade point average of 90 or higher during the 2017-18 school year. Typically no more than 20 schools in New York State achieve this honor, making this recognition quite significant.

“We are honored to qualify as a School of Distinction,” said Joseph Pennacchio, Interim Director of Health, Physical Education and Athletics. “Our student-athletes have given their best on the field and in the classroom and are proud of their achievements.”   

Congratulations to all of the students, coaches and teachers who were instrumental in helping the teams achieve at high levels.
