MOST INSURANCES ACCEPTED
Scholars’ Makes
Top List
By Dan Guarino
It’s official.
According to U.S. News &
World Report,
Rockaway’s
Scholars’ Academy is right up
there among the top-rated
schools in New York City.
A recent edition of the news
magazine ranked the city’s
top 50 high schools for 2016.
Coming in among prestigious
academic company at #21 was
Scholars’ Academy.
U.S. News &World Report noted
that the school has an enrollment
of1,302students.Theschoolboasts
a graduation rate of 99 percent and
an average SAT score of 1716/2400.
They can also point with pride to a
98 percent College Readiness In-
dex and a post-secondary enroll-
ment rate of 91 percent.
The article noted that “Hard
work and innovation are keys to
the highly accelerated curricu-
lum at the Scholars’ Academy.
Students begin Regents-level
courses in the 7th grade, start-
ing with biology. Freshmen
have course loads that are
similar to juniors at most high
schools, taking Regents exams
in English, geometry, physics,
Spanish and U.S. History and
Government. All classes are
honors or AP, so students can
earn college credit in their jun-
ior and senior years. The school
has a dress code and a commu-
nity service requirement.”
Scholars’ Academy came in
between the #1 ranked High
School of American Studies at
Lehman College and Beacon
High School at #50. The Rock-
away school shared the top list
with the likes of Bronx High
School of Science (#8), Brook-
lyn Technical High School (#13)
and Fiorello H. LaGuardia High
School of Music & Art and Per-
forming Arts (#18).
Way to go, young scholars!
