With a long and rich tradition of academic excellence, the Manhasset Secondary School prides itself on accomplished students, talented faculty, and engaged and caring parents. Our tight-knit and welcoming school community, which includes students in grades 7-12, offers a rigorous, comprehensive curriculum in an environment that encourages approximately 1600 students to meet high academic standards. Our school is located in the suburban community of Manhasset, New York, twenty-two miles east of New York City. Ranked in the top tier of all public schools in America, the Manhasset Secondary School prides itself on academic rigor, while offering a full array of musical, fine arts, co-curricular, and athletic experiences. Competitive sports, activity-driven clubs, and spirited class involvement are just a few of the traditions that actively exist in the school, many since the school's inception. The design, implementation, and funding for the "Four A's" (academics, arts, athletics, and activities) continue to drive our school's success. Currently, we offer 220 courses, 25 of which are Advanced Placement. The continued modernization of our school building and facilities provides students an environment, that supports their academic, social, and emotional growth, while best preparing them for college. We strive to promote life-long learners to positively contribute to our school community and beyond.
