New York State Education Department Named Baldwin High School a “Recognition School”

Baldwin Union Free School District is proud to announce that the New York State Education Department has designated Baldwin High School a “Recognition School” alongside other Long Island schools in Garden City, Great Neck, Herricks, Jericho, Manhasset, Rockville Centre, Roslyn, and Syosset, for demonstrating "high academic achievement, growth, and graduation rate." Only 234 high schools across the state were recognized as high achieving and high progress schools. A certificate of recognition was awarded from the Commissioner of Education, MaryEllen Elia.  

“We are extremely proud of our administration, teachers, and students at Baldwin High School for helping our district achieve this incredible honor,” said Dr. Shari L. Camhi, superintendent of schools, Baldwin UFSD. “Being named a ‘Recognition School’ by the Education Department alongside other top-ranking schools in the state further solidifies our high school as a school of excellence and innovation.”

Recognition Schools are identified as such because they are among the top performing under ESSA for performance, student growth and/or graduation rate; met or exceeded either the school or state measures of interim progress for English language arts and mathematics, rate of Chronic Absenteeism, and College, Career, and Civic Readiness; and met the federally required 95 percent participation rate in the English language arts and mathematics assessments.
