Locust Valley High School has been named a School of Excellence by the New York State Public High Schools Athletic Association. Schools earning this distinction had more than 75 percent of their athletic teams earn scholar-athlete status during the 2019-2020 school year.
Scholar-athlete teams are those that attain an average GPA of 90 or above. Accomplishing such a feat requires a focused dedication to academics while spending hours on the field practicing and competing.
“We are extremely proud to have such a high percentage of athletic teams achieve on and off the fields,” said Locust Valley Central School District Director of Health, Physical Education and Athletics Dr. Danielle Turner. “Our student athletes, coaches, teachers and parents work together to support such success.”
