Syosset High School is a happy confluence of a committed Board of Education, a supportive administration, a dedicated staff of professionals, an energetic student body, and a devoted community of parents. The instructional program is ever evolving to provide the support necessary for all of the students to succeed both as learners and as citizens.

Advanced placement courses, regents courses and programs are all designed to help students achieve. A demanding curriculum sets high expectations for everyone. A diverse selection of electives allows students to develop their interests while increasing their knowledge base. Syosset students have always performed well on standardized tests.

The outstanding faculty is dedicated to the academic achievement of all students. Their education and energy enables them to transmit their knowledge in diverse and interesting ways. The interrelationships among students, staff and administration are positive and strong. Teachers, parents, and students have many opportunities to be involved in shared decision-making.

The co-curricular program makes certain that there is always something to do at Syosset. Over fifty clubs and organizations are dedicated to service, academics, performance or competition. These meet the needs and desires of all students.

Syosset balances a challenging intellectual atmosphere with a commitment to character development. The need to develop the whole child is a priority, even with the demanding pressures of modern academia. PRIDE is not just an acronym for our character education program (Patience, Respect, Integrity, Dignity, and Empathy), it is something that is instilled in every aspect of the school community.
