New York State Education Department Named Baldwin High School a “Recognition School” Second Year in a Row

Baldwin Union Free School District is pleased to announce that for the second year in a row, the New York State Education Department has designated Baldwin High School a “Recognition School” for demonstrating "high academic achievement, growth, and graduation rate." Only 212 high schools across the state were recognized as high achieving and high progress schools. Baldwin High School currently holds a 98% graduation rate.  

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.
